Hazy amber pour with an off white head. Nose is citrus, floral with a touch of pine. Big hoppy citrus floral flavor that goes on; ends with a nice bitter aftertaste.

Undated 650 ml bottle XIII from the LCBO. Pours out brown-orange with off-white head. Nose is complex, with sweet roasted malt, pine, some oak notes. Big malt backbone on the taste, sweet caramel, roasted malt, really delicious. Balanced by a pretty assertive bitterness. Iím not getting much fruitiness here. Iím thinking the hops may have faded in this bottle, based on some of the other reviews here. Please date your bottles!

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 A big fan of this one! Copper gold in colour with pine, grapefruit and floral elements to the nose. Pine resin and citrus rind hops get your immediate attention, but they are ably balanced by the presence of substantial bready malt and burnt caramel aspects. The mouth feel is very rich which helps moderate the slightly astringent bitter aftertaste. This bites like a Stone product! Very unusual magnitude to this Double IPA for an Ontario micro beer. Well done! (postScript Oct. 2015). This new batch has a less vibrant taste profile, with both the hops and the malt greatly moderated.

Bomber. Pours amber, white head. Nose is strong orange, pine resin, caramel. Flavour is a hell of a lot of orange and pine resin with nice malt oomph. A really nice IIPA. Destroyed my sisterís palate, good job.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
More of an English style IPA, not really a double in terms of bitterness. Malty flavour, amber/brown appearance. Head retention not terrific.
