3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 So happy to finally have gotten my hands on one of these! Enjoy By 7/04/13 bottle. Immense pine and herb aroma hits the nose. Light copper with a quick dissipating foam. Very mellow herb and spice overtones. Hops are definitely present with some faint metallic notes and a cinnamon/herb finish. Overall, from the smell of it, I was expecting a huge hop bomb with intense bitterness, but it’s actually pretty tame. High drinkability though. I’d give this an A- rating.
Aroma - Intense leafy hops, sugary burnt caramel, pear and other fruits.
Taste- Leafy autumn fall hops. Toasty molasses, salty peanuts and strong bitter hops.
Overall, interesting take on this time around. Salt and peanut notes were a unique twist.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
First beer rated. Have had 12.21.12, 4.20.13, and 7.4.13. This is in regards to 7.4.13. From El Cerrito Liquor in Corona, CA. Thanks Jazz! Pours a very clear light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is an outstanding citrus hoppy character with hints of grapefruit and peaches. Taste matches the aroma, with intense grapefruit and peach notes and a lasting bitter finish. One of my favorites. Stone never fails to impress.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Enjoy by 4-20-13. Bronzed decent, albeit thin, head. Whiff of cat urine aroma, however the body is pretty intense of cat urine and kitty litter. Close to a drain-pour. The most disappointing offering I have had from Stone.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Tasted on tap at Quenchers. Huge citrusy floral aroma. Cloudy golden in color with a thin bubbly head. The hops kick you in the taste buds right after they assault your nose. I Love this beer. Thanks to Pablo for the introduction and hook up!

Originally rated 4.7 on tap but after tasting the "Enjoy By 9-13-13" from a bomber I up my rating. Damn I love this beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
5-17-13. Obviously I know this is past it’s "enjoy by" date, however I wanted to see how it fared. Pours a lovely gold with big craggy white head. Aromas are SUPER citrus hops and some grass with just a hint of tropical fruit sweetness. Flavors are just like the nose though there is a line of striking bitterness right in the mid-palate but it fades and this beer gets back on course. Palate is perfect, not too heavy for this big beer and it feels much more quaff-abale than one would imagine. Overall, this was amazing when it was fresh. Probably 4.5+ especially on draft. It has faded just a little but what put me off the most was the very sharp bitter flavor, but even then it was still super drinkable. The best about the Enjoy By series, they have improved this beer with every release and this was the best to date, if they make improvements on the next one look out Pliny, Heady, and Kern cause this is coming for your spots.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Had it on tap at Quenchers in Logan Square Chicago. Poured a hazy orange color with a thin head and uneven lacing. The aroma is a thunder bolt from Zeus, hop floral goodness. And the taste is hop euphoria, be careful, it’s a 9.5
Amendment, after tasting out of a bottle i had to up this rating. Delightfully delicious!!
