Stone Enjoy By 2.15.13 ($12 at Rams Head Bar in West Chester, PA) pours into a tulip a pale straw color, totally clear, with an initial 2-finger soapy white head that doesn't stick around for too long and leaves little lacing.
After smelling this hop bomb, it's not surprising at all that this is brewed with 11 different hop varieties. Big pine and citrus hops, grass, herbal, grapefruit, and just the faintest hint of a malt backbone holding it all together. Probably one of the best smelling IPA's I've ever had.
And one of the tastiest, too. Big resinous, piney hops tangle with mango, grapefruit rind, lemon zest, grass, and some earthiness with a slightly sweet malt backbone that balances the beer seamlessly. Very slight alcohol warmth, and the 9.4%abv is hidden extremely well. Damn, this stuff is good!
Mild carbonation prickles the tongue while the hops leave a lingering mild bitterness. Appropriately dry.
This is my virgin voyage with the Enjoy By series, but hopefully not my last. One of the best DIPA's I've ever had. Stone really knocked it out of the park with this one.
