Enjoy by 10.25.13. Pours a golden orange with a white head and aroma of grapefruit and hops. Taste is bitter sweet, bitter hops, citrus, grapefruit, caramel and resin with a dry, heavy bitter finish. Nice DIPA

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Opened 2 days before "drink by" date. Clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Initially upon opening, there is a nice hop aroma, but it attenuates slight soon thereafter. Big malt profile that overpowers the hops. No doubt that this is a double. Some apricot in the nose, but mostly hops and malt. The flavor is good, but the bitterness is a little harsh. Palate is perfect for a double. Medium carbonation that rapidly dissipates. It’s a big beer. Well done, but a little heavy-handed. I like what Stone is trying to do here. I just prefer an IPA with a bit more balance.

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a clear copper orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is awesome with ton of hops in there. Flavor is quite nice as well as long as you’re a hop head. Great beer, great brewery.

Overwhelmingly delicious hop aroma. Really nice, sweet, smooth hoppy flavor throughout. Not too bitter and alcohol is well hidden. Really really good.

Poured dark amber with nice head and retention. Lacing spiraling around glass. Smell and taste was a hop bomb, light citrus, sticky hops

WOOF! Holy wow this is some strong hoppy hoppiness! The aroma has a bite that is equally matched by the hoppy bite of the flavor. Pine,citrus, strong bitter.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
enjoy by 11.12.13
aroma of pine, citrus, mango, papaya, flowers, freshly cut wood. incredibly pungent pine tones, wow. pours a clear bronze with large foamy white head. impressive retention but little lacing. tastes of pine, spruce, pine sap, touches of pineapple, mango, some grapefruit in bitterness. the minimal sweetness is of honey and fruit. palate is clear and crisp yet full and well bodied, another perfect palate by stone. alcohol is noticeable on the palate, and accentuates the bitterness of the brew. overall, ’enjoy by’ is another joy by stone. incredible pine character, matched with tropical fruit, making for an impressive aroma and taste.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Enjoy by 11/12/13. High acidity, acrid, and plastic. With this hop profile all I get is an acetate aroma and taste, nasty. A copper color with little to no head. Some hop profiles in DIPA’s give me an acute plastic aroma and taste, this one does that perhaps more than any I can remember and I find it undrinkable.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enjoy by 10.25.13. Aroma is fruity and floral, lots of citrusy notes. Flavor is similar, very typical of a fresh hopped beer. Palate is thick and oily, but not as dry as I might expect.

The enjoy by varieties are my favorite beers. The one I have now is close to the expiration date so its a teeny bit cloudy but for the most part it’s generally clear with and slight Auburn hue. It’s crisp with a light hoppy tang and just the right amount of bitterness.
