4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoy by 4/20/14. Clear light amber, golden, pour with a very nice head and long retention lacing. Nose of sweet citrus (mango, orange) over a light grapefruit and earthy dankness background. Light medium bodied with a slick texture. Normally carbonated with no effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a blend of hop flavors over a slight biscuit sweetness with a low level of bitterness. It begins with the sweet citrus flavors which are soon overpowered by the dank earthy hop components. While complex, the flavor is heavily "dankcentric" - lol. On the smooth finish, you get a bit of biscuit sweetness flowing into the dankcentric vortex coupled with a nice residual alcohol tingle at the back of the throat. An exceptional beer that those which wonder what dank means should try.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 I’ve received some cool birthday presents in my life, but I can’t recall receiving a gift that I’ve loved as much as the green bottle that said Enjoy By 4.20.14 IPA. This is a beer that I’ve wanted to have for a long-ass time. When the opportunity finally came along in the form of a belated present, I feared that it couldn’t possibly live up to my expectations. Man, was I wrong. The first whiff of piney and citrusy hops was enough to make me fall in love. But I was just getting started. My tasting of Enjoy By IPA revealed woodsiness, grapefruit tartness, and a HUGE peppery spice. True to the West Coast fashion, Stone makes some aggressively-hopped ales. Enjoy By IPA has every bit of that manic power, yet, it’s smooth and reserved in a way that I couldn’t have imagined. Dank and potent - yes. However, this beer isn’t the least bit punishing. It’s an amazing experience to have a beer that’s been brewed to be enjoyed fresh. Thanks to the 4.20,14 release of this beer, I’ll have another date to remember: 3.31.14. At this point in time, Enjoy By IPA is my favorite beer.

Pours a clear light reddish copper with a soft carbonation that left a ring of foam that hugged my glass. The aroma has a musky floral and citrus hop notes with a sweet malt character. The flavor is of sweet crystal malts, moderate critus taste, mild bitterness, slight booze, with a resin of grassy hop flavor. This beverage was smooth and very drinkable. Overall a good tasty brew.

Draft. Small white head on a slightly hazy reddish beer. Nose is full of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is initially sweet then a ton of hops hit you. Well balanced bitterness. Much like.

Outstanding. Definitely in my top ten. Hoppy, for sure, sweet, to a degree. Delicious: Hell yeah! Fruity, funky and hoppy. More piney than flowery, but easy drinking as it completely hides the alcohol (9.4%). If you haven’t tried it, do. It’s worth it.
