12.21.12. First batch to hit MA.
Appearance: Perfectly clear molten gold. It shines, it's interesting. Head is bright-white, bubbly, and loose. Drops to a small cap with some solid, but not crazy lacing. Moderate carbonation pulls from the bottom.
Smell: Citrus, pine resin, oily. Grapefruit. Tropical aromas as well. Tangerine and mango with some pineapple. Sweet citrusy hops. Tropical fruit punches up as the beer warms. Some pale, crackery malt mixes with the hops. Deep resinous pine. Grapefruit flesh. Fresh and juicy. Aggressive, but mellow for a Stone approach.
Taste: Tangerine. Loads of tangerine mixed with some pineapple and oily pine. Slick and resinous. Grapefruit flesh loaded with sweet pine needles. Pithy bitterness as well. Pale malts add a cracker-like snap. Minimal malt sweetness. A hint of aspirin on the back as well. As it warms the bitterness ramps up and smacks of oily pine resins with a faint hint of tangerine.
Mouthfeel: Slick, smooth, and easy drinking. Dry and bitter on the finish.
Overall: Mayan approved.
Another solid DIPA from Stone. Aggressive, but never overbearing. A nice change of profile for them as well. Worth checking out and getting back again.

Finally got my hands on an EnjoyBy! Bottled 9/20/13, just screaming freshness.
Appearance: Pours a golden orange with two fingers of foamy whitish head that fades relatively quickly, leaving beautiful lacing.
Smell: Just lovely, with tons of tropical fruit, predominately grapefruit and pineapple with lots of citrus. A good deal of Stone-style west coast hop bitterness and piney aromas come through as well. Freshness is evident here.
Taste: Beautiful strong citrus, with the grapefruit and pineapple of the aroma and some mango as well. Despite this, a great deal of pine and grass come through to strike a remarkably balanced DIPA.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with perfect carbonation and solid hop bitterness. A bit of heat, and a nice crisp dry finish.
Overall: Absolutely fantastic, and I'm glad I finally got to try this one. Great beer and I hope we get it again.
