    We're going to be saving that for closer to Christmas... I'm currently enjoying the 2nd to last Rodeo Clown... I'm gonna need some more of that, it's fantastic! */completely off topic*

    Not the beer in question, but I should also mention that CM had a magnum of Double Bastard for sale for $93. Ya know, if you want the biggest bottle of Stone beer possible. First I've seen of the new batch.

    Damn this was tasty as hell! I might even go as far and say that it might be better than 10th anniversary.

    I'm missed out on this in Houston and am STILL out of town until Friday. Anyone have any leads on this being tapped this weekend or looking to part with a bottle?

    I haven't even seen it in Houston in a bottle. I'm sure it'll still be floating around.

    This IPA is one of the most tropical I've ever had. Mango & Pineapples in your face. Much less bitter than Ruination 10th, IMHO.

    Reminded me a lot of New Belgium/Alpine Super IPA in a few ways. '

    Cheers to Stone! People who say "nyah, Stone hasn't made a good beer in years" are idiots between this, Ruination 10, 16th, and Mint Chocolate.

    Glad HEB Bunker Hill has completely gone off the grid...

    Got me a couple bottles today. There were still 6-8 left that I could see. The cashier commented that a bunch of people had been buying it so she was going to grab a bottle.

    Went to Sunrise Mini-Mart in Austin last night and the cashier he would be getting "Enjoy By" today. Happy hunting Austinites.

    I tried last night at the Specs at Westheimer/Kirkwood and today at Jones/290. 2 strikes...

    Hope I find some soon. I want more than the four ounces I had of the first batch.

    I hear there's a keg at Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane. Think I might go down there tonight for Geeks Who Drink.

    I'm "pretty sure" there is still some at Westgate CM. There were yesterday.

    400 Rabbits? Nice little bar that's a destination of it's own. I might go down there myself if there's a keg of Enjoy By.

    Really? Dammit. I was there early on Tuesday and didn't see any on the shelf or at the desk, and there wasn't anyone around to ask about them. Are they keeping them in the back?

    They seem to keep just about anything "limited" at that little wine desk lately. Even the Stone Chipotle/Vanilla Smoked Porter, which still seems to be everywhere, is back there.

    They didn't come in until Tue afternoon. Stone rep. Steve tweeted there are about 36 left there.. about 2 hours ago.

    Was there last night and they had a couple of cases to the left of the wine desk. Also had some Sam Adams Merry Mischief in the cooler.

    Ah, okay. I have to go tomorrow morning anyway, maybe I can get there this evening somehow. Thanks.

    Anyone seen this on tap in South Austin? Taplister is only showing it at Hopfields and a Whole Foods in Bee Caves.

    Whoever said this is an Alpine in disguise is exactly right. It's like a more balanced Duet, which I'm not sure if that makes it slightly better or slightly worse. A+ Stone, Chad would be proud!

    Agreed. Drinks a lot like an Alpine clone. Wonderful stuff.

    I was there too and the weirdest thing is... to me anyway, it tasted less intense on draft than the bottles I've had. One would think it would be the other way around. Maybe my sinuses were a little stuffy? Maybe those glasses they served it in were not optimal ( I used tulips at home) I don't know. It was less satisfying than the bottle version.

    Weird huh?

    I gave up after one half pint and had a couple of their excellent Bill Norris-inspired cocktails.

    Pinthouse Pizza on Burnet has Enjoy By on tap. $7 for 12oz snifter. Damn tasty stuff! (grab a pizza while there, so good!)

    Is this still available at CM Westgate? Thinking I need to pickup at least 2 more bottles before the end of teh world.

    Not sure about CM but the Valero at Barton Skyway had ~4 on the shelf at 2pm today.

    Any of this stuff in Houston besides downtown Specs?

    I've been trying at my 2 easy stops (Specs 290/Jones and Specs Westheimer/Kirkwood). D&Q didn't get any at all.

    Austin peeps, Bangers and Mash on Rainy street has it or had it on tap last week. It taste as close to drinking good pot as anythign I have ever sipped. Strips the enamel right off your teeth.
