Enjoy by 12-26-14. I had this beer on the 25th. Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a cloudy darker orange with a small white tan head. Aroma consists of orange, peach, apricot, and pine. Taste has all of these great smells with a nice malt backbone that amplifies the taste even more. Well balanced beer with a medium body and moderate carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Awesome beer.

22 oz Bomber poured into a shaker pint. Appearance is dark Amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is complex with pine and citrus initially presenting followed by floral and more resin. Taste is bitter with only a slightest malt sweetness balancing. Palate is medium-bodied, dry mouthfeel that lingers long into the finish.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy glistening gold with a moderate and frothy white head. Aroma is stupifyingly fresh - dank delicious hops and citrus. Super smooth on the palate with flavors slowly revealing themselves. Pine forest fresh, hop-strong, some grapefruit and tangerine citrus out the back and a mild caramel malt backbone. Citrus linger with some mild residual bitterness. Super fresh and hoppy but easy on the bitter. Dynamite.

Enjoy by 2.14.15
Bubbles are vacuous with a nice sheen. An almost lager like clarity, it looks great. 13 hop varieties here we go! Pine and bright citrus with a dense hoppy smell. Warming up, it goes to candy orange slices. Sticky taste, it leaves syrupy residual bits on the lips. Complex hops, oranges and grapefruits, floral and pine. I'll take another

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Bottle at home. 22 oz. No matter how far I stray on my journey for new beers, I always end up back at the same brewery: Stone. This beer is fresh and delicious. It is crisp, refreshing and balanced. A great example of a fresh IPA. Enjoy by... Or else.

The most solid of solid beers. Easily one the best and most cherished beers I am able to get my hands on whenever available. Golden color, white head, citrus aromas, light body and signature Stone bitterness. Even my Mom loves this beer almost as much as she loves Schlitz.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 12-30-2014. This bottled Enjoy by 12.26.14 beer pours a medium sized silky smooth of-white head that is mostly lasting, yellow transparent body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and has a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit, grassy hops, and spicy. The flavor is very bitter, spicy, sweet, citrus, grassy hops. The mouthfeel is very lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and very citrus tasting. It is a big hoppy beer that is for hop heads and not so much for me.

Poured from a bottle on Christmas Eve, San Diego. Impressive aromatic properties. A refreshing, bitter, piney bite chock full of flavor. Fantastic beer that was worth trying.

12-26-14. Coles Buffalo. Crystal clear gold pour. Incredibly bright fruity nose. Really hoppy and fresh tasting with a heavy bitterness and a little bit of malt character. A slight stickiness and a bit of pepper as well. Decent - although a bit sweeter than I’d like.
