Brewed with 8 different hops and dry hopped with whole cone Cascades. Its more powerful than our Islander IPA and even the most intelligent have become "idiot" after a few pints of this super hopped up beer!

On tap. It has quite beautiful and charming texture. Beautifully mariaged Juicy and grassy hop shake my brain. I can see brewers’ soul the stracture stands from beginning to end. Smooth mouthfeel. Aftertaste my tongue is clean more than I think.Well drinkable. I want refill if I don’t have work tomorrow.

22 oz. bottle from Wine 101 in Wake Forest, NC. Hazy, dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Incredible aroma of grapefruit rind, pine needles, and sweet caramel. Super hoppy bitter pine flavor with a generous amount of malt sweetness. Some moderate alcohol warming and a lasting pine and grassy aftertaste. Really great stuff.

A really enjoyable IPA. Aroma is peppery, bready, fruity... a little bit of everything. The flavor is the same.... extremely complex. Nice full mouthfeel and velvety smooth. No lingering bitterness. Delicious!

Growler courtesy of Naven. Pure, West Coast hoppiness. Awesome flavor of piney, flowery, resiny, spicey hops. Beautiful pour w/ great lacing. Thanks Dave.

Bomber. Nice pour with a thick, tight, white head. Flavor is over ripe blood oranges, resin & pineapple. This is the real deal. Spicy hops are blended perfectly with the sweet malts. A great choice making this "SD IPA" a cozy 8%. I love this stuff.

Bomber. I can’t believe the lower score on this beer. I usually think right around the average. This may be the best beer I have had in a LONG time. I’m so glad I bought 2 bombers. This is very similar, perhaps a tad less strong, than the Stone 10th anniversary beer was. Huge citrus mango and pineapple flavors. I would buy this beer all day long (well, i may be to toasted to do that). Amazing and just the right beer for me.

Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Ooweeee!! Belter alert!! Poured a hazy amber colour with some floater action swirlin and twirlin in there and a decent looking off white head. Aroma jam packed full of resinous hop and tropical fruit....as indeed was the flavour. Some sweetness evident, but all in proportion, and this just clicks supremely.Just a hugely enjoyable drink that I could gladly drain all day.

On tap at coronado brew co. Lingering lacy head. Sufficient hop aroma. Floral hops abound up front, bitterness fades somewhat quickly for my taste. alcohol lingers on the back of your tongue. Overall a good dipa. Looking forward to the next pint.

Light caramel pour. Aroma of pine hops and tangerines, very appetizing. Excellent citrus flavor, sweet on the front with a lot of cascade hops on the back side. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
