  2. Just cracked my first bottle right now, and definitely agree that the fruity and citrus hop flavors aren't as bright. Other than that, it's still Damn delicious.

    I'm just wrapping up a growler and I think it's fantastic.

    Yep, it's slightly different every batch (they switch up the hops a bit). This batch has less tropical character but it's still damn good, up there with the first batch (and I've had them all).

    I'm a whore for tropical IPAs. This batch didn't get me off like the last two.
  6. I had a bottle this evening, and I concur. My least favorite batch so far. It seems like they went for the "funk", but it didn't have the hop bang to balance it. My favorite batch was either the first or the last one (fourth).

  7. My local Von's in San Diego had plenty of Enjoy By this evening, for what it's worth. Whole Foods had a bunch, too, both at $5.99. Not hard to find anywhere in San Diego, I think.
  8. It's the same recipe. Though I hear that it uses whatever hop varietals are available.

    So I guess it will vary.

    The batches definitely haven't been identical. Didn't like batch 1 at all, batch 3 was incredible but more aromatic, this one is a nice mango/peach and resin/dank balance IMO. I'll be sad once we tap out of it!

    Would that include pavilions ?

    Really great beer imo. On my third bomber
  13. Not sure on that. He just said vons. But it never hurts to look.
