3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/2/15 pour from bomber of 02.14.15. Hazy yellow Amber without much aroma. A little piney and citrus but a little unbalanced toward malt side. Did a side by side taste test with Pliny The Elder and Pliny had a better aroma and more balanced taste.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
02-14-15 from 22oz. bomber into a room temperature pint glass. Nose and taste bursting with delightful floral, citrus, and pine aromatics, with just the right amount of actual bitterness to balance the bouquet. Remarkable mouthfeel for an imperial over 9% ABV - doesn’t feel sticky or overly mouth-coating at all. So tasty and so drinkable -watch out!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle (Batch 02.14.15) pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine, citrus and tropical fruits with some grains. Taste is a pine and citrus hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and grainy malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation that pleases the palate. This is a very nice DIPA that must be appreciated by all who can get it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
(Stone Enjoy By IPA) Bottle 650 ml, from BenH, thanks! Batch 02.14.15 Served into a shaker, ABV 9.4%
Golden yellow to orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a good sized and thick white head, great retention, leaving light lacing behind.
Hoppy aroma with mango, tropical fruits, light pine and resin on the background, citrus, kumquat, light pineapple and even melon.
A whole bunch of flavours, again citrus, orange peel, melon, tropical fruits, light alcohol, mango, with the bitterness on just the right level, both on the initial stage and as aftertaste too.
Medium body, good carbonation.
Really great beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 650ml bottle with a BB of 14/2/15 air freighted to Australia within two days of bottling by a brewery-approved importer (as opposed to the grey imports up til now). Clear golden with a large dense white head that lasts. Loads of fresh hops on the nose with notes of orangey citrus, blue spruce, pine resin, alcohol, and tobacco ash which is broadly reflected on the tongue. Palate is smooth, medium bodied and robustly bitter with a substantial citrusy dry hop bitter finish that lingers long after the swallow. An exceptional West Coast style American DIPA that lives up to the hype.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I’m sorry, but I’ve got to give this a perfect score. As far as a DIPA is concerned, this is perfect. Bottle of 2-14-15. Shared in BrewDog Dundee with the wife. Pours golden/copper. Nice white foamy head. Smells tropical and citrus. Tastes very much the same. Bright, fruity, bitter, with just a tiny hint of sweetness, not too much.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft of EB 2/14/15 @ The Office on 1/23/15. Pours straw yellow with 1 finger of white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is strongly citrus with subtle tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit sticky. Palate is robustly citrus and resinous hops balanced nicely against the malt backbone and alcohol. Nicely balanced DIPA. Probably the best Enjoy By since the 4/20/14.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Here’s the first of the day, fellas! Bottle. Enjoy by 02.14.15. Clear yellow with a medium sized off white head showing good retention and lace. Pretty soft for its size and well balanced; not too sweet or overly bitter. The alcohol isn’t too aggressive either, it warms and gives a light sting on the gums. Sweet tropical fruits; peach, mango, pineapple, some green wooden notes and a bit of onion and white cheese as well, mostly in the nose and towards the finish. Very much hop driven but with enough body to carry it all. The finish is also well balanced and slowly fades. Very good example of the style and drinks well.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really amazing beer all around. Nose is super bright citrus and clean, grass and loads of hops. Flavor is similar, again loads of hops, plenty of citrus and bitterness. Resinous as can be. I’m a big fan

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2-14-15 batch. Pours golden, good head retention, medium carbonation. Aroma is nice and earthy-floral with sour citrus. Taste resembles smell, more fresh citrus lingering with nicely-sticky mouthfeel. Earthy-grassiness still present for great depth. Super enjoyable, alcohol hidden skillfully.
