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.

As good an IPA as you"ll find. Although mine was six days past its date, so maybe it could have been better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This Enjoy By 12/26/2014 tasted on 12/30/2014 was a bottled brew from a bottle shop which poured a head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent orange colored body with a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was of citrus and floral hops. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of bitter mild rye citrus and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Alright, I’ll finally rate this. Still not 100% sure if these are all the same or not. But who cares. It’s good. Enjoy by 12/26/2014, so I’m a little late, but it’s still awesome. 22 Oz bottle. Pours a golden with a lot of head and lace. Big, thick and creamy body with a nice fresh hop citrus aroma. Great hops all around here. Awesome IPA.
