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...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brassy golden, visible carbonation and a decent white cap that fades fast. Nose is brassy grapefruit and grassy sweetness. Unturned bitterness throughout, crisp and decadent without being genericly limey. Shakes of melon and the fleshiness of papaya and guava. Rich, inviting carbonation and a twisted sherbert buzz on the mouthfeel. Incredible dusting of earnest hop sweetness throughout, solid dry hopping ploofs towards the finish. Sweaty grapefruit linger with more of this intriguing lean sweetness.

650ml brown bottle. Enjoy by 07.04.15 - bottled on 05/30/15. Yellow, hazy. Good sized white cap with lots of clinging lace. Aromas of grapefruit and orange, tropical fruit, pretty vibrant. Taste has grapefruit and some tropical notes and pine. Aftertaste is heavy on pine, with some fruitiness. Smooth for its strength, just a bit of the alcohol showing late. I liked this a lot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear yellow, aroma of alcohol, grass, bitter grapefruit, mango, dried stonefruit. Taste is very messy, big booze, some malt and a disappointing bitterness with not too much aroma hops.

Pours a tangerine yellow, slight head. Citrus aromas. Grapefruit and other tangy citrus. Hoppy bitterness perfectly balanced with floral aromas and citrus flavors. A beautiful IPA!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Value On Liquor Store, Vancouver
bottled 2015-05-30, enjoy by 2015-07-04
Hazy golden to light amber color. The aroma more than the flavor offers pungent, piney hops; the body is lean and the mouthfeel rather dry, yet it’s smooth; the malt is a bit biscuity although not exciting.
A good hop bomb. Initially I didn’t feel at all the high octane, it tastes like a regular modern IPA, extra points for this!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dried mandarin orange with barely any foam.
The nose shows moderately intense citric orange and pineapple,
The body is full bodied with a barely perceivable IPA bitterness and a mellow fruit forwardness that makes for extremely easy drinking. A good malt support that neither interferes nor is it too weak to support the freshness of the hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber @ voyager. Pours somewhat light gold with lasting white head. Piney aromas, some tropical fruit like pineapple, mango, grassy notes, with light breadiness. Distinct fresh grassiness in the flavor, not as in your face hopwise as I was expecting, but pleasantly full bodied with enough hops to match. Light malt sweetness that morphs into hoppy sweetness on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a very light orange amber with a white head that does not hold. Aroma is heavy on the side of tropical fruits and malt and does not have that resinous punch that you would expect from an Imperial IPA. Flavor is also sweet with heavy notes of tropical fruits and once again, the hops are taken over by sweetness of the malt. Medium body, slick/sticky mouthfeel and boozy in the finish. I cannot compare this to the previous enjoy by releases since this is my first. I can say, I am not impressed.
