4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with the 05/16/14 "Enjoy By" date right on the label. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass.
Appearance: Perfect clear, bright, gold color. It develops a robust head that quickly goes away and leaves just a thin ring. The lacing is incredible, covering the whole glass and slowly sliding away.
Smell: Big citrus, hop aromas of pine, grapefruit and spices attack the nose. The smell is very good and very important to the overall experience.
Taste: The citrusy grapefruit taste is right at the front along with some pine and spicy pepper notes. There’s also an alcohol sting at the end thanks to a 9.4% ABV that gets stronger and more noticeable as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. It’s smooth and very refreshing when cold. It only gets smoother as it warms up.
Overall: It was a big deal for Puerto Rico’s craft beer scene getting this. Believe the hype, it’s simply incredible in every aspect. Hophead or not, you need to give this beer a try. It should be noted that in order for this beer to be enjoyed fully it should be had slowly. The taste and texture both change the warmer it gets.

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 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!
