I like the Enjoy By series, but this one didn't work for me. All I taste is smokey tobacco and no mocha or hops. I'm not sure what Stone is up to these days. They have so many different releases throughout the year, I just think they're trying to do too much. I don't typically go for anything else Stone unless it's Enjoy By IPA. I think they're trying to save face in this ever increasing craft market and it's not working.

Gonna switch to my last ALL CAPS by Mumford Brewing. Now this is a west coast IPA that deserves some spotlight.

I just cracked my 22 tonight and I have to agree. Not really getting any coffee or chocolate, just a weird bitterness and a slightly OK hop flavor. Would not buy another. Also drinking the Nitro Black house tonight and it is better than the original black house, but not better than Mega Black house.

You allow yourself one growler pour for the game on Sunday. Epic BA BBB or Bruery fudge?

made a little trip up north today. cloudy and wet, but an easy and enjoyable drive.

they had a banana variant and a marshmallow variant on tap. the marshmallow was crazy good.

got lucky on the way back as well. Wren House released an NE style IPA. cracking that crowler tonight.

those tastes just don't seem to be what I would look for in an ipa. I wonder who thought this would be a good idea?

I've had a couple of coffee IPAs that were good but this combo doesn't usually work well.

Although I have a lot of love for the bruery, I have to agree..
