4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Enjoy by 4-1-13 on tap @ First Street Alehouse (on 3-15) with a B.L.T.A. Clear, golden brew with a thin white head. Smelled like a very fresh DIPA, floral and fruity - great aroma. Typical DIPA tastes of citrus, grapefruit, then earthy, hoppy, with a slight bitter hop aftertaste - typical Stone brew. As it warmed it did get a slight malt backbone which balanced it nicely. Would have never guessed it was a 9.4%. Could have kept drinking these all afternoon...
9/2/13 - Changing my rating from a 4.1 to a 4.2 after drinking a bomber of Enjoy By 9.13.13. Oh my goodness I wish this was cheaper to buy. Loved it!
On tap @ Tap25 9/4/13. The best of the all the tasters tonight! I’m raising this brew to a 4.3 after having a fresh one on tap. Person sitting next to me said this is the best IIPA they have ever tried. Smells are incredible!
Enjoy by 9.13.13 in a tulip from a bomber on 9/16 after winning the office football pool. Is this a the closest thing to Pliny the Elder? Just sayin’... Raising my rating to a 4.4!
Enjoy by 12.13.13 from Tap25. Now changing the rating to a 4.5! Put it up against other beers in a taste test and it is a winner! The smell of this beer is the best. Pliny the Younger? Just sayin’...
Enjoy by 4.20.13. 4.20??? Oh yeah. I love love love this beer. Costco had these bombers for $5.59. That is a GREAT deal. Comparisons to Pliny the Younger valid yo...

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.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good sweet citrus and fruit smell, taste is strong alcohol off the bat, mellows quickly to fruity esters and sweetness, hops are almost all upfront

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 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Paid $10 for a pint of this. Worth every penny. Poured from a tap at my local deli. Wonderful lacing and persistent head. Color is a shimmering gold. The aroma is basically fresh flowers, there's no other way to put it. The hops are amazingly consistent across the palate. Other beers hit you early or late. These hops are smooth, even, and balanced from beginning to end. Amazing double IPA that sets a high bar.
