4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 Bomber poured into my ipa glass. Pours a dark Orange color with a thick fluffy off white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of pine, grapefruit, citrus, and resin. Tastes of all the same things in smell but caramely sweet also and high abv is really well masked. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with light carbonation and a bone dry finish. I am glad I was finally able to try this amazing ipa. It?s one of the best imperial ipas I?ve had to date. Pretty well balanced but hoppy. Its a hop heads dream beer for sure.

Tasted from a 22iz. Bomber. Poured a clear amber with a frothy head. Citrus hop aroma. Smooth caramel-hop taste. A bold tasting beer of substance.

Had it out of a 22oz bottle. Poured a medium whit head with no lacing. It had a very tangerine dream sweet aroma. Light hop tasting upfront with a heavy caramel aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013 Drafts at Alla Spina. Pours a lightly cloudy amber with white head and decent lace. Nose of fresh pineapple juice, citrus, pine, stone fruit. Medium mouthfeel, smooth bitterness. Well concealed abv. Very fresh and delicious. Other than Enjoy by this might be my favorite Stone beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very solid DIPA. Delightful citrus hop aroma w/ a mice copper pour. Taste is citrus hops, some sweetness, & finishes a touch bitter. Still quite drinkable at the ABV - nicely done!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear orangey red color with a pillow-like white head. It does to look like someone spit a loogie in my beer...but in a good way. The aroma is huge of piney hops but a ton of alcohol too. Trying this the day after Yulesmith, they're quite similar. There is too much alcohol noticeable. Hining the alcohol is something RR does great and I think Stone did it on the Enjoy By as well (although its been 5 months). The taste is not overly bitter but has a bit too much alcohol heat. The feel is silky smooth. A great beer on a hot day.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was a bomber 7 days after packaging. Opened the bottle and was hit in the nose with the hops, almost a piney/citrus smell. Poured in to a tulip glass plenty of head on the pour. Darker Golden pour, slight haze. Firs taste I was taken back by the bitter hop taste, but I loved it. it is just like the bottles says " A astage dive into a mosh pit of hops" towards the end of the sip, the sweetness of the malt kicks in and compliments well. but the hops are very aggressive. My kind of beer. it is slightly boozy. but doesn’t bother me. Great beer all around. Wish this was a regular year round beer. I’d drink one every day.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Smells very floral. A sweet honey note.
A: Looks pretty good. Explosive white head. Bronze clear color.
T: Nice wet hops on the palate. Finish is super bitter. Not a smooth bitterness. Aggressive.
P: More aggressive than other IPAs.
Overall this is a pretty good beer but not blowing my mind. A little too out of control compared to other stone beers.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruit, resin, flora, caramel, and a subtle nuttiness. Clear, dark copper, with a mostly lasting, off-white head. Strong, dry, and bitter, with a well rounded fruitiness redolent of apricot, pineapple, and red berries, and with a savory, nutty malt backbone. Medium-full bodied with nice carbonation, and a finish chock full of hops and malts. An enormous beer that stays clean throughout all its complexity.
