Pours honey-yellow with a thin head. Sharp, citrus-y nose with a hint of pine. Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated and dry. I really like these Stone special releases, but I'm not a fan of the Brut style. Reminds me of a hopped up Asahi Super Dry. Maybe for a Brut, this is good, but I'm not going to be sampling any others in this style. I hope Stone goes back to the fuller bodied IPA's for future releases.

12oz canned 11/27/18 (17 days ago) poured into a snifter at fridge temp 9.4% ABV. The beer pours bright light amber in color with off white head. The head recedes to a fat ring around the glass and leaves some lacing. The aroma is candied orange and pine. The taste is semisweet caramel and candied orange with a firm medium to strong bitter & dry finish. The mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, very good DIPA, but not very Brut. Basically tastes like they dried up the finish on regular Enjoy By a touch and sent it out.

Pours a clear amber color with a finger width foamy head. Retention is mild. Lacing is very good. Nice, fresh, citrus aroma. There is a champagne like quality. Fresh citrus taste up front, dry champagne on the end. Not overly dry. A little much on the bitterness on the end. Light bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

Arguably the best enjoy by I've had. And I tend to enjoy all of them. The appearance vibrantly clear, the aromas is intensely potent, the flavor is crisp and fresh as ever, the feel is soft and dry which I'm not sure I'm in love with but certainly dont hate. Overall, worth they $17 six pack.

This is a beautiful, crystal clear, deep gold beer with a nice white head that retreats to the edges of the glass and stays. The aroma is full of caramel, pine, mango and citrus. The taste is sweet with caramel and mango. The mouthfeel is a little heavy for a Brut and it isn't as effervescent as other beers I have had in this style. It finishes aggressively bitter as well which isn't what I expect from this style but it does help it feel incredibly dry. Pretty solid beer but I question the Brut style in this one.

Date: Canned on 11/26/18, ha, enjoyed on 12/12/18.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful clear but deep copper gold and produces a fairly substantial two plus finger head that is just a little off white.

Aroma: Raw honey, hop resin, caramel, pine, some dankness, and touches of grapefruit. This is a great smelling west coast IPA that balances the sweet and bitter aspects without the use of added fruit juice, lactose, or other nonsense.

Taste: Enjoy By Brut does indeed feel like a dry sparkling wine, but never looses sight of the fact that it isn't. Its sweeter caramel malts with plenty of pine and mango upfront, then you get that aggressive Stone hop bitterness and some lite pepper briefly creeping in on the mid palate before it dries out completely. Again, the end has that sparkling wine effervescent dryness which gives this one a light mouthfeel and as a result, it drinks more like 7.5% than 9.4%. As the beer comes up to temperature, more of the hops come out and produce a little bite with a great lingering bitterness which is a nice contrast as this is more sweet than the typical Stone IPA. The mouthfeel leaves a little something to be desired, but Brut is another quality beer from Stone that does something a little different while remaining in familiar territory. While it isnt heads and tails above Stone's other great IPAs, I can confidently say that you can check this one out with confidence.

Enjoy By 1.1.19. Canned on 11/26/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with great clarity and transparency; fluffy white head that slowly falls leaving nice retention and lacing. The aromas have a subtle blend of citrus and tropical fruits. Hints of rubber. Some bread and crackers. Some sweet malts. The flavors basically follow the nose. Some lemon, grapefruit, watermelon and pineapple lead the way. Some black pepper in the mix. Moderate bitterness. Malts do their thing. Subtle stickiness. I thought it would finish pretty dry, but I feel it's on the juicier side. The alcohol is ultimately well hidden. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy and smooth.

This is a pretty solid beer. The "Brut IPA" is clearly the newest trend in craft beer and this is my second one, so obviously I haven't had many and need more examples of the style to see what I personally like and expect from the style. That being said, I really like this beer, but it doesn't really have a "dry/champagne" vibe going on. It's still a really nice DIPA though. The craftsmanship is on point. It's enjoyable and fun to drink.

12oz can, snifter glass. Darker copper body, clear, frothy two finger white head, good retention and no lacing. Smell is dried biscuit, a fair bit of citrus, slight grapefruit, leafy resin. An underhanging toffee presence. Flavour follows; grainy biscuit, toffee, fair dose of caramel, with a background of grapefruit, zest, resin with a moderately dry resinous and floral finish. Fairly hop-forward, and dry as advertised, a bit thinner bodied as a result. Moderately bitter finish. Not sure I like Brut IPAs much as a style, but Stone didn't disappoint in terms of the hop-forward presence here.
