smells like a lot of other pale ales and IPAs (which I am not a fan of). too hoppy without being spicy, rich or flavorful. i should qualify this by saying i like wheaty beers, particularly pilsners and lagers. has in my opinion a high bitterness to it that i don't care for; that's why i usually steer clear of IPAs.

[edit 7/30/13] i'm developing my palette. i'm starting to like stone's ipa line now. this one isn't as good as enjoy by, but i am learning to appreciate it.
