    Woohoo !!! The best DIPA I've ever had. They should make it a seasonal. I thought it was way better than Enjoy By

    Seconded.
    If I had this or Enjoy By in 4 pks, I'd never need to buy anything else for my DIPA fix.

    Ok, I may be exaggerating, but they would sure be a great addition to my DIPA heavy fridge!
    Right now, Double Jack, Pallet Wrecker, (new) Gubna, Leviathan IIPA and Sucks could use some company.

    Enjoy By 4-packs would be nice, too. Though, I still prefer my DIPAs to be bitter, so, y'know. It's a very good beer in my eyes but not a truly upper-echelon example of the style.

    I was out there for this particular anniversary and drank a ton while there... bought even more when I got home. Would love for this to happen.

    Y'know what, I'd take fresh batches of 15th and 16th Anny in 4-packs, too. Those were both fantastic. 15th, people rallied around, for sure. 16th, I have no idea how it wasn't more popular. That beer was tits.

    I think everything should come in 12 oz, but I would be surprised if they put it in 4 packs. I really enjoyed this beer.

    fran, Stone wants to artificially short the Enjoy By market to ensure it sells out. If it was just like ever DIPA on the block, it would gather dust like the rest. It is approaching Pliny the Elder status in that sense; not readily available, but readily amazing. As long as consistency stays high, i see a bright future for Enjoy By, but it will be a restricted one.

    Oh I get that Gibson, and I don't fault them for it. I still wish it were more bitter, though.

    I'd totally be ok with this. Wipes the cobblestone streets with Enjoy By.

    Can't wait, I thought ruin 10 was insanely good, and I like it better then enjoy by. Once it comes out I can confirm this, or see if it's just bad memory.

    I enjoyed 16, didn't think it was a top dipa but if it was around fresh I'd buy it. I think perhaps the bros review altered many peoples ratings. Not blaming everyone because taste is subjective but I would think the rating should be higher.

    I wouldn't mind seeing 15th anniversary again. I liked it a lot more than SSR.

    I went to a Stone tap takeover last week and had a Ruination after a couple of Enjoy By's and Ruination is not in the same league IMO. It's tough when a brewery comes up with a beer that makes another one in their lineup look average, but that is what happened for me with these 2 beers.
