    I loved 2.15 but my bottles of 4.1 were too earthy for my taste. It was a fresh onion taste mostly. It wasn't bad just not what I was expecting and not exactly what I'm looking for in my IPA's. I've read many said their 4.1 was a citrus hop bomb (which was my experience with the 2.15). Hopefully the 5.17 bottles I get are more like 2.15 :)

  20. BTW my protip on Enjoy By:

    Splurge an extra $2 and buy a 6er of Lagunitas Sucks. Trust me.

    The 4-1 had a cool muscadine grape kinda finish, never had an IPA with that twist, no onions at all.

    I love sucks(Im on my 5th 6pack since it hit stores) and havent had Enjoy by, but I had my wine store put my name down for 4 bombers....can you explain further, what you meant?

    Enjoy by > Sucks IMO

    Sucks is a great beer but the smell of the enjoy by gets me every time
  24. DCRA

    DCRA Aficionado (160) California Dec 14, 2011

  25. Price aside I think Sucks is better. Price factored in and I'll never buy enjoy by again. Good beer, but sucks blows it away IMO.

    I appreciate the tip... I gotta have it though, and find out for myself.

    Nectar Savant (310) New Jersey Jan 17, 2013

    Fresh Sucks or the sucks on the shelf now?
  28. When it comes to comparing good (D)IPA's, it's really all about price and freshness IMO. Enjoy By certainly nails the freshness angle, but it is definitely pricey. It is a better value on tap though - falling more in line with the prices on everything else.
  29. well when I was buying it with the enjoy by it was fresh.

    OK, revised protip: enjoy by ain't worth the price, however tasty it is.

    I wish Sucks was still as available in NC/VA as it seems to be everywhere else :( but I would still buy them both, gotta have some variety!

    Despite many peoples dislike for Enjoy by, I've had the 2.15 and the 4.1 and thought they were both great, slightly different , but without a doubt delicious.
  31. Come back to PA please!

    Gonna keep an eye out.. the 4/1 was great. Still looking for Enjoy By 4/20 but I'm starting to think we won't see that one in upstate NY.

    Had both the 9.21 and the 11.9 - truly outstanding, even by Stone standards. Just picked up some Sucks for the first time, and while it is good, Enjoy By is a step up...
