3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep orange amber color. Aroma is of light citrus and floral. Flavor is bitter with a fruity orange sweetness. Probably of the coriander and lightest hint of elderberry. Not much in the finishing mainly bitter. Overall somewhat disappointing being a string cheese incident and stone ipas fan.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 650ml bottle. Bottled 5/2/14. Pours a clear, but bright orange with a half finger, off white head that thins to a film. Aroma has great notes of pine, citrus, resin, berries, and bread. Taste is bitter but enjoyable. Pine, resin, tropical fruits, and citrus to start, then moving to bready caramel at the end. Big, bitter, resiny, bready aftertaste with a touch of alcohol warmth mixed in. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Resiny in the mouth with a big, dry finish. Overall a very tasty stone brew. Aggressive bitterness but with great flavours. Kinda an odd flavour mixed into the finish.

Stone has never made a bad IPA. This one is really good. It’s sweet, bitter, hoppy, fresh it is just a BIG beer. Brown sugar and hops. What else do you need? I’ve always loved all the IPA’s Stone does and this one is just as awesome.

From a bottle. Pours cloudy dull amber, fast fading head, big floral aroma, initial hop fruit mellows to a malty backbone with a slightly warming aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle - Pours lightly hazy copper colored with a two finger head. It has a floral and citrus hop aroma. The flavor as expected is high on the bittering hops. The citrus and florals are there too. It’s got a full bodied malt backbone with a long bitter finish. As usual it’s another excellent IIPA from Stone.

Blonde dorée. Beau collet. Belle effervescence. Corps rond. Bonne amertume. Fruité. Fine chaleur d’alcool. Légèrement sucré. Sèche et bien rafraichissante malgré son haut pourcentage.

I’m getting a hint of something exotic - perhaps the elderberries though who knows what the hell elderberries taste like - or maybe the coriander, though that’ a spice that normally doesn’t agree with me. Whatever, it works. Really smooth and delicious but not overpoweringly bitter. Which is good because at 9.3 % this rock n roll collaboration brings a lot of heavy metal to the table. Stone Brewing can do no wrong

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a medium densely packed white head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine, and malt in the background. Full-bodied with a resiny hops and flavors of grapefruit and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter which over shadows the citrus and pine hops in the aftertaste.

very solid double IPA. worth a try, but ruination and other stone beers are much better IMO. We want hops should be a slogan for some of these collaborations.
