3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
7-04-2014 batch. Consumed 6-18-14. Light-gold with a few mm of white head. Aroma/flavor light pine after fresh rain with lemon rind. Some grainy notes. Medium-light body with moderate-coarse carbonation. A pretty good IPA but not nearly worth the hype. Maybe I need it fresher still. I will try to get more detailed notes up soon as this is admittedly relying a bit too much on memory.

Stone Enjoy By IPA (7/4/14) is a very good DIPA, but not the best I’ve had in this category. Moderate but nice floral aroma rising from a bright amber translucent pour with a quarter inch head that retains nicely. Taste has is citrus, pine and bubblegum notes with a healthy alcohol warmth with just enough bitterness so that the flavors aren’t knocked out. Enjoy By is fresh and definitely has hop character you will expect.

I'm enjoying the "07.04.14"
Plenty of hops -both on the nose and the palate. Plenty of booziness too, at 9.4%

Look: pours a golden color. Thick bright white head fading fast. Thick lacing on the side of the glass.
Smell: extreme dank from over a foot away. Citrus fruits, bitter smell. Orange, lemons, pine. Flowers and juicy fruit bubblegum as it warms up. Very sweet smelling, bitterness has gone away.
Taste: not as bitter as the smell leads one to believe. Citrus fruits, lemons and oranges. Slight pepper. Pine on the back end. Definite dank cat pee flavor.
Feel: very light and crisp. Good carbonation. Leaves a thin film on your mouth.
Overall: not as extreme as I would think for such a strong beer. Very good beer, would definitely try again.
First drank: home 6/16/14

Grapefruit, Resin, Citrus
Pretty good batch of the enjoy by series, much prefer the 4.20.14 batch as it was more unique in flavor and taste.
Still very drinkable and fantastic.

I love the marketing concept for this stuff and it is a damn fine IIPA as well. Really, the only downside to it for hopheads is the appearance which is clear orange w/ a short lived head. And what kind of a hophead is going to be unable to look past a minor shortcoming in appearance? The nose on this is really unique. It sounds strange to describe but the hop character has an almost minty edge to it along w/ pine and peaches which I think of as being fairly standard. This is a lightly sweet beer with soft bitterness which helps the aromatics really shine in this case. The carbonation is mild and the texture is full and cottony. It finishes w/ a lingering touch of honey sweetness and some gentle resinous bitterness. This is a great IIPA and I heartily recommend it to fans of the style.
