    Does anyone who was in an area with distribution for round 2 of this have any input on what kind of supply there was? Here in SoCal, finding round 1 was like tracking a unicorn. I heard there may have been some production issues with that one and I'm hoping that they put a little more out there this time but I didn't hear how it went the second time.

    Yes.

    Here's a link to the info, including the local rep, who you can contact and then, if you choose, kick in the nuts....(poor Stephen)

    All I know is that this will be on tap at Petrol Station's Anniversary party, and I couldn't be more excited.

    It's a good IPA, but don't expect a world killer.

    I'll be there, but probably not until the evening. Who knows what will be left by then.

    I had it on draft in Escondido the day it came out, and it is absolutely phenomenal.

    I found Ruination 10th to be far superior. Everyone that split the bomber felt the same way. In fact regular Ruination may trump it. I'd say that one is a coin toss.

    Of course this is all opinion. And I'd still drown another pint in a heartbeat.

    I got the choc mint at midtown specs on Saturday. They had lukcy and double as well. TX Stone rep (Steve) posted last night that enjoy by should be in every market by Wednesday.

    And if Stone's site is accurate, it should hit stores all over town in Houston.

    Update:

    The truck bringing this to Texas is late so it likely will not be in stores until Friday at the soonest.

    "Soonest"... not sure if that is even a word....

    Let's say "earlyist".

    Both Saucer Sugar Land and downtown have Enjoy By, but Spec's is strangely quiet about it on Twitter.

    Just picked up a bottle (Enjoy By) at Whole Foods Park Lane--Dallas. It's up by the bar area. Looks like I will be altering my Thanksgiving beer plans . . .

    Pinthouse Pizza posted that they put a keg of this on. We should be receiving this today, and hopefully putting it on over the weekend.

    This is soooo good. I love Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy hops and this was dry-hopped with both. Incredible.
