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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
4.20.15 with 17 days to go. Fruity, malty, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, a hint of pineapple, citrus peel, barley, and a bit of resin. The mouthfeel is hefty, almost syrupy, with moderate carbonation and a medium-to-thick body. The taste is perfectly bitter, with some accompanying tropical sweetness and a lingering, but not astringent, hoppy finish. No trace of alcohol in the taste department. Great.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 Enjoy By 4.20.15. Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is fantastic, sweet tropical fruits, slight pine, sexual. Appearance is perfect, golden with a white head. Taste is amazing, a hoppy bitterness that catches you off guard based on smell, paired with sweet tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is perfect, crisp but not too carbonated, a nice thickness that prevents it from being light. Overall, I?ve had a taste of it before, and it?s just as I remember, amazing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4-20-15 batch. Pours a light somewhat cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma is of pine with notes of citrus. The flavor is of syrup up front with a bitter hop bite at the end. The body is medium and goes down real smooth. Overall a good beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
El Batcho 04-20-15. Reviewing from deep in the Ottoman Empire. Spectacular beer! Herbal, earthy, wet, resin, thick, bit of pepper bite, rrgf, caramel, peaches, pungent anything, tropical things, solid lemon taste, unicorn tears, honey, every damn sip is just simply awesome. I am officially drinking only this at home. Gonna be very hard to by other I/IIPA’s available here to review or whatever because it’s absolutely fucking pointless. Seriously - who the fuck keeps buying subpar beers when excellence awaits? To get that next Picaroons IPA review? (totally gonna do that btw because i have a permanent ipa hard on.... sigh). Lyric of the night: "gangbang at the old folks home : one foot in the grave : two lips on my bone". Beat that.
