It is an outstanding beer. I look forward to the day that Stone deems Alabama worthy of distribution of this beer.
Good luck. I'm in SoCal a few hours up the freeway, and I can barely score a bottle.

I usually only get bottles of Enjoy By, at the Stone company store, or at Bevmo. However, everywhere else, store owners/workers act like they have to bend over backwards, to let you buy a largely marked up bottle.

I go directly to Stone, just to skip all the hassle. It's a really great beer, but people hype it up too much and that makes it hard to find.

I've tried "Enjoy by", I like "Enjoy by", but I'm unwilling to play games to get it in North Carolina. Exclusivity marketing has a long history but let's face it, it's just a good beer. I plan on brewing my own from a Bertus brewery recipe and not obsess about it.

They do whirlpool pettet hop additions for the rest of the beer, I am not positive about the whirlpool hop additions but I'd say Citra, Centennial, and CTZ are fairly prominent in the enjoy by with maybe some Amarillo. Stone also uses a house strain of yeast similar to WPL007 and ferment at 72ºF. Stone is fairly open about their recipes, except Arrogant bastard so Im sure their is a recipe for an enjoy by clone out there.
Thanks! Golden promise! On stone own blog the hops are revealed. What other specialty malt and adjuncts do they use? I've seen sugar, Munich and C-15 as possibles. I liked it (the enjoy by beer) quite a bit. I'm going to attempt a clone for my next or second next (dunno what that means) brew. I tried an AB clone and had heard wlp007 was a good yeast to use for emulation, so was planning that here as well Thanks again! TD

Also,

wondering if I end up doing a 12 gallon batch, to wind up with two full cornys, AND if I want to use HopShot extract, boiling for 90 minutes and adding 20 ml (four syringe fulls), the FAQ estimates 100 IBU added for 10ml into 5 gallons.

ANyone have any experience using this stuff?

TD

Yeah, Carlsbad Costco had a ton too earlier this week. Picked up a couple. Good stuff.

Stone blog lists all hops etc... Super Galena is the extract, plus there is a mash hop.


Stone Enjoy By IPA
Stats: 9.4% abv, 88 IBUs
Hops bill: Calypso during the mash; Super Galena hop extract for bittering; Simcoe, Delta, Target, and Amarillo for flavor; Motueka, Citra, and Cascade for aroma; Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy for dry hopping

If you're near Raleigh I've seen it on tap at the Village Draft House and I think World of Beer, and bottles at Bottle Revolution.

Though I'll admit, when I tried it at the Draft House I thought it was very good but didn't change my life. Wouldn't surprise me at all if it had lost some aroma since leaving home base

From the Blog post,

Quote:
Hopping, as might be expected, was over the top. First, the brew was mash hopped with Calypso, a beautiful fruity hop that we also used in our Stone 16th Anniversary IPA, after which we kettle hopped with a very small dose of Super Galena hop extract for bittering. Then, using a technique I’ve that some ine homebrew circles call “hop bursting,” we loaded up very heavily on the flavor hops at the end of the boil and in the whirlpool. Simcoe, Delta, Target and Amarillo were used in the late kettle hop. Motueka, Citra, and Cascade were used for the whirlpool hop. As you can clearly tell, this beer was super hoppy even before we dry-hopped it, but then we went for it…dry-hopping with 1lb per barrel EACH of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin and Australian Galaxy.

Yep! They spill the beans on this one!

For those who've not tasted, it is reminiscent of opening a small mylar pouch of hops. Then think about pouring beer into the pouch and drinking from the pouch.

Hop-tensity is the most extreme I've ever tasted. I tried dispensing an IIPA through the Blichmann Hop Rocket filled (3oz) with columbus hops (Cascade or Centennial would've been better) and the Stone was MORE intense and enjoyable. The Hop Rocket trick was just too much columbus flavor to enjoy for my tastes anyway...
