Enjoy By 01.01.19 Brut IPA
I recently grabbed a can of Stone's Enjoy By 01.01.19 Brut IPA. I haven't had the opportunity to try other Brut IPA's, though I did see a few other options on the shelves. I guess this is the new cool thing? "A Festively Fresh Double IPA" 9.4% alcohol. 90 IBU. Canned 11/26/2018 Drink 12/23/2018 so I did make the beer name date!
Fruity tangerine aroma. Fruity flavors too, orange marmalade, rich and jammy. Light pine and some spiciness shows through, nicely bitter. Then a super dry finish, yeasty lingering into the aftertaste.
You can tell this beer has a killer DIPA base, but I'm not sure I'm in love with the "Brut" aspect. Check it out and let me know what you think!
