Default Stone Enjoy By...how'd they do it?

I'm sitting at my fav local watering hole. My first order was a harvest ale from East End; a local brewery and its a very nice mild balance of maltiness and fresh hop flavor......when I notice the new Stone tap. I, of course, order one.

How tehfuk do they get so much hop aroma and flavor into a beer that's travelled across a dozen states? While I've had many homebrews this aromatic and flavorful, I've never had a commercial brew like this!

It's fresh and they use a lot of hops.

On #2..there's some hot alcohol flavor in the after taste. Sugar?

Regardless, I'm drinking the sheeet out of this.

Mac and Jack's brewery from out in Redmond, WA does it by fastening a bag of hops into the keg itself where it stays until the keg is returned to them.

They have have two additions, one bittering and one during the whirlpool. Then they dry hop. I recently listened to a podcast from Beersmith with one of their brewers. If I remember correctly, I am pretty sure he mentioned a ratio of around 1 pound per barrel....

This is accurate for their usual beers but Enjoy By is hop bursting and whirlpool hopping at its finest. Mix of NZ, Aussie, and good old American hops helps too.
