4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
4.20.15 on tap. Served a golden color with a fair head and some lacing. Strong aroma of pine and citrus with a bit of fruit in the background. Taste of citrus and pine with fruit and grain. Distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp refreshing with a robust feel with no hint of the 9.4% ABV. This is what an Imperial IPA should be.

This brew is a bit of sleeper. It is fresh and delicious as a well crafted pale IPA can be, but the hop notes are somewhat subtle compared to some of my experience w Stone high Gravity IPA style biers. For a double IPA, I would not have guessed it. I’m probably ruined by the Stone double bastard I recently drank. That was a bomber too! Not a
10oz pour you get in the local pub. I think the EnjoyBy is one IPA friends who don’t drink hoppy strong IPAs would enjoy!

Paid $10 for a pint of this. Worth every penny. Poured from a tap at my local deli. Wonderful lacing and persistent head. Color is a shimmering gold. The aroma is basically fresh flowers, there's no other way to put it. The hops are amazingly consistent across the palate. Other beers hit you early or late. These hops are smooth, even, and balanced from beginning to end. Amazing double IPA that sets a high bar.

Look – Thin, white head. Bright, golden translucent body.
Smell – What you expect a dank to smell like. Dirty, YMCA shower before going to the pool.
Taste – Where is the alcohol? Sweet grapefruit taste. Bitter aftertaste.
Feel – Feels heavier than expected. Filling. Not much expansion.
Overall – I like this dank IPA, but that is what I go for in IPAs. It is a hit it and quit it release.

Fat hos Ginger man NY. Bara känslan o sitta här o njuta en dubbel ipa är fantastisk. En trevlig lite torr dipa. Smakerna sitter o eftersmaken är bra.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Enjoy by 4/20/15, 22oz bomber, poured into 16oz tulip glass
Aroma: big hoppy aroma, dank best describes it, slightly sweet
Appearance: clear, golden, minimal white head
Taste: Heavy bitter
Palate: medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish
Overall: Very dank with aroma of overly ripe mangoes and fruit. Notes of very tropical fruit like hops. Bitterness tastes rough and harsh. Overall, not a fan of this one. I’ve had other Enjoy Bys that I’ve absolutely loved, but not liking the hop selection in this offering.

Enjoy by 4/20/2015 batch. A snifter on tap at Old Line Fine Wine, Spirits & Bistro in Beltsville, MD. Appearance is clear gold with no cloudiness, tiny bubbles. Aroma is fruity, with fresh and clean nose. Taste continues with fruit, onion-y, and super dank but malt comes through as well. Awesome DIPA. Palate is slightly boozy, but perfect nonetheless. GO get this, before its out. Devastatingly good.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Nose: ripe peaches for miles. there’s also passionfruit, pineapple, sweet oranges. overall a round plump intoxicating fruit medley!
Palate: one of the most perfectly balanced beers ive ever tasted. it’s hoppy but not offputtingly bitter, sweet but not cloying in the least, rounded, fully integrated, complex, mind-bendingly delicious. there’s just a hint of the trademark stone pine-sol acridity to give it an edge and not a whiff more. the malts taste like actually something and not just gross heavy syrup. it’s like you’re drinking a pina colada with peach and some spuce tips but made by the best bartender on the planet. smooth and edgy at the same time...it dances on your tongue and palate and leaves just the perfect amount of tree bark in the throat. beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
