At Stocks and Blondes, the 05-17-13 batch. Not a big fan of this beer. Big hops but they were too grassy and it had kind of an off honey taste. Needed more malt back bone too. Serving: Tap

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Enjoy by 5/17/13; made it just in the nick of time. Pours a clear, bright orange-hued gold with a finger of white head. Aroma of fresh oranges, herbs, a little pine, pineapple, and sweet malts. The flavor has orange, pineapple, pine, sweet and caramel malts, and mango. Really smooth and clean. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Very good DIPA.

Incredibly delicious, hoppy and drinkable. Grapefruits and citrus are at the upfront.

I had the Enjoy By 05-17-13 on 5-13-2013, on tap at Blue Five in Roanoke, VA. It is delicious. It reminds me of Stone’s 16th Anniversary IPA, but brighter and really crisp. Grapefruit was the dominant note for me, but there were floral and grassy qualities as well. This thing hits the nose like a train and then doubles down in terms of flavor. It’s just delicious.

Copacetic. The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.

Like drinking a basket of molten flowers sprinkled with sparkling pixie dust. This beer has serious spirit. Delicious. And I'm not really into powerful IPAs. But it is so fresh you can't help but like it.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden amber with a paperthin white head. Aroma of citrusy, bitter hops. Taste is bitter, citrus, sweet malt and slight alcohol. Very tasty, rediculously bitter and citrusy. Solid dipa!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clean, light orange color with a modest white head. Aroma has a very pronounced mango nose, modest orange and tangerine with a light pine finish. Flavor starts off with a strong mango, tangerine, orange kick with some modest earthy bitterness and a very mild pale malt finish. Body is light/modest with sharp carbonation and a dry finish mostly from the extremely hefty hoppiness. Overall a great beer. Price was around $5 for the bottle so it makes it even more of a fantastic buy at that price in comparison to other brews.

Batch 5-17-13. Pours orange with thick white head. Aroma of citrus and piney hops. Taste of piney resin in the front with nice malt balance in the finish. Great sipping IIPA. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Definitely notice the alcohol. Bama has to be next on Stone distribution...please!!!!
