Greg Koch of Stone Brewing on Enjoy By IPA and Fresh Beer Imitators
Greg Koch knows that any given batch of Enjoy By is essentially a calculated risk. The brewery spends a ridiculous amount of resources creating a massively hoppy, resinous DIPA with a nearly unheard-of 13-hop blend then has only a few weeks to get it everywhere it needs to go before starting all over again.
