3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, enjoy by 2/15/13. Forgot about this one in the back of the fridge, so just cracking it tonight. Clear bright slight orange tint golden with 1 finger head on pour that falls rather quick to a ring and flabby bubbles. Papaya, tropical/fruit punch hops, piney, as it warms, more garlic and green onion start to come out. Crackery pale malt in there too, but this is a massive oily in your face hop nose. The hop flavor is a bit more balanced/cohesive on the palate, but doesn’t really fit what I like in a hop profile. Sweet, bit astringently rough, garlic and onion flavors come in late, but thankfully fade to just more of a sweet bitter piney finish.

Ill be honest-I'm not an IPA fan, but this is so well balanced. So good, even for someone who's not into the style..

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I got the enjoy by 5-17-13 bottle at Brewtopia. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big grassy and grapefruit notes on the nose. Nicely balanced on the tongue. Lots of grapefruit and enough bitterness for balance. Hides it’s alcohol we’ll. One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had.

Had the Enjoy By 04-01-13. Medium colour. Aroma of grapefruit and pine is quite pleasant, almost up there with Pliny. Quite easy to drink given the quite strong bitterness. Thanks Mike W for the beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
