COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers- especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs- weve taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. Weve not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that youre getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isnt randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the bottle, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and beer fans. Instead, weve sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

MaltOMeal (1093) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 12/21/12 version On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a big off-white head. Nose is huge powerful grapefruit and pine. Taste is very bitter citrus with some sweet malt unbalanced but that is fine with me. Mouthfeel is medium and very lingering bitterness. Great brew by Stone. 04/01/13 version. Bottles. Very similar to the previous version, except more balanced and more pine. Very smooth and tasty. This is fantastic! Best brew by Stone. I have searched town buying as much as I can find. This now ranks as one of the top IIPAs Ive ever had.

Enjoy by 12-25-16. Pours a clear gold with thin white film head, and you can see the carbonation. Nose is phenomenal - pungent grapefruit. The taste is also heavy on grapefruit up front, with plenty of hip bite on the finish. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sdaniel90 (1054) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 26, 2016
Enjoy by 25/12/16, consumed 21/12/16. Clear orange. Deep aromas of tropical hops, caramel, pine. Medium to robust bodied, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Dry hoppy and roasted flavors into an alcoholic finish. Very standard, though heavy.

ChadPolenz (1747) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 22A Double IPA

AROMA: Intense hoppy aroma of American and New World hops. Citrus, stone fruit, and flowers are all prominent. Slight grassy spiciness as well. Clean, subtle malt presence. No overt boozy character. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Flame orange hue; fairly hazy but Co2 visible. Large bright white froth retains and laces extremely well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Lightly sweet peach or other stone fruit (no pun intended) immediately. Citrusy hops follow with a slight orange juice flavor. Strong hop bite at the apex finishes with a dank bitterness. Low-to-medium caramel flavor and sweetness throughout the palette offers balance. Alcohol creates for smooth warming sensation and accentuates the malty sweetness. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium+ body; well carbonated still rather viscous. Smooth but slightly sticky. A lingering resiny bitter aftertaste. The 9.4% ABV is subtle and not distracting. Very quaffable for such a strong brew. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Of course Stone is going to make a World Class DIPA. This is exactly what everyone wants and expects in the style and its great! 10/10

TOTAL SCORE: 46/50

But maybe that was just me thinking the date had something to do tieh to... But I?m going to add one more rating and one more beer to my 2nd card at the forge.

Enjoy by 11.25.16, consumida el 11.10.16 APARIENCIA: de color amarillo/dorado con algunos destellos ambarinos a contraluz, se observa cristalina y una mediana alta actividad de carbonatacin. Corona de espuma color blanco de mediana retencin, con burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: destacan las notas ctricas y herbales, algo de cscara de toronja, mandarina, resina, dankness, adems algo ligeramente floral y frutal, como maracuy, dulzor de las maltas presentes. SABOR: de entrada un gusto ctrico y herbal de los lpulos, notas a cscara de toronja, mandarina, resina y dankness, algo floral, terroso y frutal como maracuy y algo dulce de las maltas como galleta neutra, sin mucha intensidad de sabor; el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo, seco y que queda ligeramente pegado al paladar. SENSACIN: cuerpo medio, se siente como si fuera jarabe, mediana carbonatacin. Sensacin ligeramente clida en garganta al pasar el lquida pero que no es nada agresiva. RESUMEN: una IPA que no ofrece mucho, plana.

floral and pine aroma backed up by caramel malts,some sweet fruit..real nice appearance creamy foamy half inch head in a golden liquid with hints of copper,plentiful lacingtaste of tingly bitter and citrusy hops with just enough malt to make it smooth..slightly sticky on the palate otherwise full bodied plenty of carbonation long finish slightly dry..overall not a whole hell of a lot to complain about really delicious IPA even if I went way past the best by date (this was the 12 25 15 version today is 10 21 16)
