4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 9/13/13 version. Pours a translucent, golden orange color with a finger length head that dissipates somewhat quickly and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is amazing. Tons of of overly ripe pineapple, some grapefruit, orange, papaya, mango, peach, more tropical fruit notes, pine, tiny bit of breadiness and sweetness from the malts. Taste starts with some bitterness, but more tropical and citrus fruits like pineapple, papaya, apricot, mangos, some floral qualities as well. Was already smooth on the front end, but then gets even smoother and creamier in the middle from the malts that somewhat balance it. Then finishes dry with more tropical and citrus fruits, as well as some pine qualities. Very smooth and crisp finish that cleans the palate and makes you want to take another sip. Has a slight sweetness throughout, which complements the hop characters and gives the hop flavors almost a gummy bear-like taste. High medium, oily body. No alcohol detected at all. From what I read, this beer is made with mostly flavoring hops and not many bittering hops. I agree with this, as there are just massive amounts of juicy fruits in this. Better than Ruination in my opinion. Well done. I may grab another one before it’s taken off the shelves!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a nice golden color. Has a sweet flavor with a bitter after taste. The after taste could be because it’s has a citrus/grapefruit taste.

This was 4/20 , on tap. It didn’t have the hop freshness that I was expecting, while still a decent beer, I was expecting more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of citrus and pine, grapefruit and dank, multilayer caramel over lemon zest comes through. Great clear copper with white head. Definitely some pine and alcohol in taste, hop kinda subtle so it’s balanced more towards body then hop. Overall great IPA. And by 420 is a great marketing. Therfore the rating is 4.20.

4.20.15 on tap. Served a golden color with a fair head and some lacing. Strong aroma of pine and citrus with a bit of fruit in the background. Taste of citrus and pine with fruit and grain. Distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, crisp refreshing with a robust feel with no hint of the 9.4% ABV. This is what an Imperial IPA should be.

This brew is a bit of sleeper. It is fresh and delicious as a well crafted pale IPA can be, but the hop notes are somewhat subtle compared to some of my experience w Stone high Gravity IPA style biers. For a double IPA, I would not have guessed it. I’m probably ruined by the Stone double bastard I recently drank. That was a bomber too! Not a
10oz pour you get in the local pub. I think the EnjoyBy is one IPA friends who don’t drink hoppy strong IPAs would enjoy!
