UPDATED: FEB 10, 2016 Possibly my favorite beer by Stone, after Go to. It’s great they are making this so often now, and at 6.99-7.99 it is a steal. Huge hop character in the nose, along with a dank, almost manurey side to it that I find delightfully earthy and funky. Mouthfeel is dry, with some sweetness, huge pine, crispness, moderate malt.

12.13.13 22oz. Bottle for $6.99. Pours a light golden with small white head and a little haze. Aromas of pine and dank hops. Taste is crisp with a little sweetness, hops are mostly resinous and piney. Nice crisp finish with almost no malt and the hops stick to your throat. Very drinkable for being a double. markducommun (1116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Molasses, pine resin, grapefruit. Clear goldenrod, with a small tan/white head. Quite bitter upfront, more pine than citrus. Small amount if sweetness. Oily, fair amount of alcohol present. Well balanced interesting ipa.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 11-12-13. Ridiculous good hop nose. Strong golden color, little less carb than desired. Strong hop flavor in front and then again on back end. Superb. Make sure you drink this fresh. After the date, it drops about 1 pt per category. pchoate (27) - West Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 30, 2013
A true jewel of a Double IPA I found at a local market. Very fresh, clear and hoppy flavor. A slightly bitter finish - tastes very good. This is the kind of beer that makes California a great place to be a hophead.

Brilliant reddish golden color, great fresh floral and piney hop notes. Excellent. Had the 12-13-13 batch at the stone restaurant in Escondito.

12.13.13 on draft at Addison's in Columbia, Missouri. A very piney and citrusy aroma. Such a smooth and citrusy IPA. Honestly one of my favorites of the Enjoy By Series. Stone has done it again.

Pours golden with a rapidly folding head. Immediate aroma of pine and citrus. Taste builds to pine hoppy middle. Actually mellows at the end of the glass.

From bottle to glass! 12-13-13 aroma is sweet like apricots and hops. Taste is sweet with a nice hop and malt flavo.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2015 Enjoy by 12-12-13 (possibly 12-13-13?). A pint from the tap at a growler fill. Poured amber with a white head. Big citrus and floral aroma. Lots of malt, with a big in your face citrus floral hoppiness that is just so nice. This beer was wonderful. I used to think I wasn’t an IPA guy, but with beers like this, I’m changing my mind. The 02-14-15 might just be the best batch yet. No change of rating, but I just enjoyed the 3-14-15 batch, a little less than before; Still world class. I had the opportunity to enjoy a few from the 10-31-15 batch over the last month, the last one on 10-30; it was noticeably maltier on the last drinking than it was earlier. 12-25-15.
