    Hope I can actually get some this time. I haven't been able to enjoy since September!

    I only had the 12.21.12 on draft (Red's Porch), and damn good it was. Looking forward to another hit and maybe a bottle or two this time.

    Edit: I wonder if there are some other markets wondering why Texas is getting a second bite of the cherry so soon when they're still waiting for their first?

    They pick the markets based on social media interaction. TX and MO both got 12/21/12, and are getting the next round again due too due to overwhelming response on twitter etc per the article.

    Anyone else notice pwsoldier's name in the article? :)

    Glad to see Texas can actually win something beer related and we'll have more of this in like 1-2 weeks!

    Ah, thanks. I didn't have time to read the piece earlier. I voted for it first time round :)

    I was wondering if any BA's were in that list of prolific tweeters :)!

    I have had all 3 of the batches, love the stuff. Need to get my hands on the next batch. Also, starting a bottle collection of these, my wife loves it o_O!

    The email I just got from Stone doesn't list Texas.

    These active, vocal craft beer enthusiasts are opening a dialog, helping each other and, in the process, spreading the edict to DRINK FRESH AND NOW! We couldn’t have hoped for anything more when conceiving Stone Enjoy By IPA and thank you all, especially those who really took things to the next level by speaking loud, proud and often. The following are five fans who showed up on our radar the most during the Stone Enjoy By 12.21.12 IPA wave: MegJumpTweets (680 posts, Dallas-Fort Worth, TX), scottallan1963 (562 posts, Worcester County, MA), elareau11 (124 posts, undisclosed location, MA), pwsoldier (108 posts, San Antonio, TX), shannon_j (105 posts, Dallas, TX).

    Thanks in large part to the aforementioned evangelists, three regions rose to the top of the list. In fact, the top market yielded the highest number of emails and mentions for a single market since we started the Stone Enjoy By IPA program. That sum—3,626—was turned in by the Lone Star State. Turns out, everything is bigger in Texas, including, apparently, a thirst for hops.

    Now that I think about it, I don't think I've seen anything Stone at D&Q.

    True. I think they want all markets to have a chance to weigh in before resending to states/cities that have already had it. As it stands now, I think there's an excellent chance that TX will see Enjoy By again in the future, but not this month.

    Yep. I fucking love that beer. Reminds me of Lagunitas Sucks (which I'm currently drinking) and Alpine IPAs.

    Looks like mybeerbuzz was incorrect it seems the other markets listed in the article are getting the next wave - my apologies for sharing the bad info.

    Our local Stone rep didn't think this next batch was headed to Texas either .. just talked to him 2 days ago. He does plan to request larger quanities for the next batch that does come here.. probably in late Feb/ early March.

    Oh well. In the meantime, we can drown our sorrows in Sculpin. :)

    I was mislead at first too. When I finally realized that TX isn't getting the 2.15.13 batch I was very sad to say the least.

    Bummer if this isn't making it to Texas this go around, really enjoyed the last release

    Well that sucks!

    Jez, with all the *mwa mwa mwa* butt-kissing on that press release and the fact that we COMPLETELY OBLITERATED all other states in social mentions AND had the "HOPPIEST BAR" in the US last year (Hay Market) this should now be a Texas year round! Send it all here, buds!

    Drink by 1.31.13
    Drink by 2.28.13
    Drink by 3.31.13
    etc...

    :)

    Is the hop flavor more citrus or pine?

    Petrol Station won "Most Bitter Bar" in the nation. Hay Merchant won "Most Arrogant Bar" in the state.

    Since I don't drink IPA's much... I guess I'll get over this disappointment.

    It was worth trying. And I suspect this beer will continue to make its way around the US for years to come so you'll have a chance. As a point of reference it was similar hop profile to Southern Stars Pro-Am. I might have given the nod to the Pro-Am heads up and for sure felt Endeavour was better.

    So why did they have this contest if they weren't going to actually make good on it?

    I don't know why everyone expected TX would get the very next batch. They never said that if you won the "social game" that they would send it back right away. Once they have gotten it out to more markets I could see us getting it again when they are deciding who to ship again. Some people need to act less entitled.

    Big time citrus. Reminds me of Alpine Pure Hoppiness. Big citrus notes, some piney flavors as well with a sticky/resinous mouthfeel like a fresh hop ale. Stones best IPA in my opinion. Definitely has the edge over Ruination.

    Sorry I missed this on last year. Maybe next go round.

    It should be back at some point this year since Texas won that social media contest associated with it. Just not sure when it will be. But it's really a stellar beer.

    i picked up bottles at the bay area blvd specs, when i had zero intentions of finding them. was perusing around looking for something else and saw about half a case in the cooler, on the bottom shelf.

    A few smaller Specs got it, but it was at most a case from what I've heard.
