    It’s a long way to it, but I appreciate you’ve noticed.

    The simple reason is despite my efforts to review a new beer now and then, distro here is not that good and it cost quite a bit of money. Cheers!

    Keith: I paid a total of $13.27 for this bottle. Even with Crook County taxes I feel like I got away with a misdemeanor at the very least.

    Bowzer: Never mind that. Would you please stop staring at me? Eyes up!

    Keith: I apologize. you are the most attractive alter ego I've ever been associated with.

    I have been putting the setting at 3.3 speed, the highest 12 and that is going up hill the entire 25 to 30 minutes. I sweat my ass off and get just under 1.5 miles burn 335 to 400 and eat pretty low carb besides beer. Down 25 to 30 pounds since 1/2/19. Lifestyle change and feels great to get it out of the way in the morning. Cheers man.

    Good morning, BAs!

    Six and a half years ago, I reviewed Enjoy By for the first time. (Aside: it's absolutely crazy that this beer has become venerable on the beer scene!) This beer really started me down the IPA side of craft beer, and consequently really opened me up to other styles, as well - if I could like IPAs, then I could probably find something I like in each style.

    Naturally, my reviews back then skewed toward higher ratings; when you have fewer beers to compare, after all, it just makes sense that you're more impressed with something new. While this is the "Unfiltered" version of Enjoy By that I'm enjoying now, I'm trying to look at it through the same "new" lens, as though I've never had it before.

    [​IMG]

    Would I rate it the same today? Damn near. It's still a hell of a representation of a WC IIPA, with modern hop varietals giving it more fruitiness. I love the bitterness that holds back juuuust long enough to let you savor those hop flavors right away; the mouthfeel is still sublime, especially for a 9.4% ABV brew.

    This is still a damn good beer, and I'm glad I picked up a couple of 6-packs. There was something romantic, almost mystical, about those huge limited bombers, disto based on state online voting. Nostalgia for what it is, I'm glad we got a ton of it this time around.

    Cheers!

    Mine is the 2019 version . . .

    Taste of fresh bread and caramel malt with a solid hop punch. Malt has good and flavorful depth with remarkable staying power and hop influence is equally present with further notes of grapefruit, lemon zest and an herbal essence that just underscores hop richness. Good flavors with great complexity and balance.

    Gonna hit 60 today (or close to it) so nice DDH weather to start the day.
    Got my run/spinning routine done, waiting on UPS to get packages, and oh... XFINITY IS THE DEVIL. Random thoughts, but such is a Monday. Cheers.

    Time to get into some born day beers. I told @DoctorZombies that I would revisit Jai Alai if I could find it fresh. Fate had it that a fresh batch would await me on this glorious day, so I'm more than excited to revisit this old school treat. @Justonemore91, thanks for the shout. MLM supporters will have to forgive me, as today will be an IPA-inspired theme, as are 99% of other days. Let's get f*cking LARRRGE!!!

    People may call it a summer beer and ideal to sip on in the afternoon/evening down in Florida but I’d drink that all day long, even in Stockholm ATM if I was there. Cheers.
