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 canít 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. Iím 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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle from Ninaís. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Resinous hop aroma of pine, mango, orange and caramel. Huge hoppy flavour upfront with pine and pineapple and prominent bitterness. Moderate combination and CO2 prickle. Long resinous pine, peach and mango characters with warming alcohol. Delicious!

Nose is pine, berry, juicy fruit, some orange peel and honey. Very sweet malt. Head is about average, didnít sick around for long. Color is a hazy orange golden color. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, but full. Bold hop flavor, borderline acidic. Definitely beyond what I enjoy. Basemalt is pleasant, but a little too sweet for my tastes. You can really taste the IBUís in this one. Aftertaste is harsh, and long lasting. A bit loose compared to SNís Hoptimum. Enjoyable nonetheless Enjoyability 4/5.

strap (588) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - DEC 28, 2012
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

Poured from the bottle in to my Coronado glass on their coaster ;) aroma is great, floral, grassy and dank, very well rounded. Flavor is similar with a laid back malt character and bright hopiness. Burps up quite tasty with the resiny hop flavor. Palate is sticky and oily with a dry finish.
