UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Enjoy by 12.13.13 Super floral hoppy aroma. A bit fruity too. Pale golden in color with a thin white head. Creamy yet pine filled start with a fresh hop after zing. Amazing.

7-04-13. Pours clear orange with a a small white head. Smells super piney and has some citrus. Taste is strongly pine with strong citrus undertones. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and a medium amount of mouth-carbonation, Stone Enjoy By IPA finishes with some semisweet bitterness.

I was at a loss for words when I drank my first bottle of 12-21-12, it was so incredibly good. Not to gush but literally one of the top 3 bottled beers I have ever had. After a few good tastes you start to feel the hop high, and the huge fresh flavor makes it go down fast.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle in to a Sam Adams tulip glass. Golden orange, crystal clear with a finger + of off white head, decent retention. Aromas of grapefruit, mango and piney hops. Flavor follows aroma, grapefruit, piney hops, some tropical fruit, bready, strong malt backbone and finishes hoppy and bitter. Super well balanced; you don’t usually get this much fruit, malt and hop bitterness in the same beer. Medium bodied, mouth slightly dried out. Overall, probably my favorite IIPA. This is the third batch I’ve had and so far it has been very consistent. I’ve had some of the world’s best, Pliney, Hopslam, Dreadnought and this is definitely up there. The best part is the price and how easy it is to find (at least in my experience).

Two fingers of foamy head on a clear, medium straw colored body. Looks great.
The aroma of fresh hops: strong on the pine. Wonderful.
The taste is big and bold bitterness: pine bitter, lemon bitter and a big malt bill to hold it all together.
The texture is smooth and crisper with moderate carbonation.
It’s a top of the line beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 So happy to finally have gotten my hands on one of these! Enjoy By 7/04/13 bottle. Immense pine and herb aroma hits the nose. Light copper with a quick dissipating foam. Very mellow herb and spice overtones. Hops are definitely present with some faint metallic notes and a cinnamon/herb finish. Overall, from the smell of it, I was expecting a huge hop bomb with intense bitterness, but it’s actually pretty tame. High drinkability though. I’d give this an A- rating.
Aroma - Intense leafy hops, sugary burnt caramel, pear and other fruits.
Taste- Leafy autumn fall hops. Toasty molasses, salty peanuts and strong bitter hops.
Overall, interesting take on this time around. Salt and peanut notes were a unique twist.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 First beer rated. Have had 12.21.12, 4.20.13, and 7.4.13. This is in regards to 7.4.13. From El Cerrito Liquor in Corona, CA. Thanks Jazz! Pours a very clear light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is an outstanding citrus hoppy character with hints of grapefruit and peaches. Taste matches the aroma, with intense grapefruit and peach notes and a lasting bitter finish. One of my favorites. Stone never fails to impress.
