As it turns out, the Whole Foods bar has incredibly cheap beer. They must offset their losses with the grocery costs. So I was able to try The Stone's new(ish) 'Enjoy By 420' for $4. That's right - four United States dollars. And look at how pretty it is!
As it turns out, this Imperial IPA clocks in at 9.4% ABV, which I consider pretty decent for a grocery store beer.
The nose is richly, exquisitely herbal. I smell thyme, maybe a bit of lavender, and maybe some pepper? It's also just barely the slightest bit stanky - sum gud stank.
Poured with a really pretty head but I drank it too quickly to get a picture of it. The bubbles are adorable - if you imagine them as individual human beings, it's like watching the Sim's.
The taste - yup, there is quite the taste. It reminds me of the weather outside - it looks beautiful, but it actually has quite the bite to it. Mmmmmmmmmmmm me likey.
The mouthfeel is very pleasant - if this wouldn't screw up my career, I would intermittently cleanse my palate with this throughout the day.
Overall, gosh darn, I bet stocks of this run out before everyone gets the munchies.
