    I drank one of the last bottles after the "enjoy by" date, so I'm barred from buying this batch.

    I have a feeling that these bottles will go just a bit faster around here than last time....

    Fresh Enjoy By was unbelievable. I was impressed by how much it fell off in just a week.

    I have to say they put some thought into this release coming to Colorado considering the date stamp.... Is this batch also going to Washington State (edit: indeed it is, lol)?

    Love it at GABF and when it came last summer, probably my favorite Stone IPA close to Ruination 10th.

    Oh man...Ruination 10th was terrific. Maybe the best IPA/DIPA I've had in recent memory, Pliny included.

    Looks like there may be more distributed to CO this time around. Or maybe just more spread out. Last time here in Greeley, we only had 1 place with it on draft and 1 store that got a case of bottles. This time, still just 1 place for draft, but 3 stores with bottles. I'd be shocked if they split a case between 3 stores.

    Are the recipes for each batch of Best By the same or different?

    It's totally legit. This time they are using lemon verbena and skunk weed.

    Interesting. I figured it'd be patchouli and incense.

    We (Colorado) must have gotten a much larger shipment than last time, or my store ordered a f-load more...they had at least 12 cases.

    Sounds cliche but the last batch 11.09.12 really was better. This one is oniony.

    Perhaps 4/20 was better before 11/09. But if that were true, then it would exist before being brewed. And it wouldn't be called 4/20, rather 11/08. Of course, the 11/09 could have been the original 4/20 before it was even brewed....
    oh no, I've gone cross eyed :confused:

    I didn't get any onions, but I do think the 11/9 was better. This new batch is still pretty great though, no complaints here

    I really thought the 11/09 was pure squeezed onion juice and nothing else. Was looking forward to giving it a revisit. See if I can gets a bottle tonight.
