Good dark color with a large not overpowering hoppy aroma. Nice caramel head. Nice balance. One of my favorites.

Not a big fan of black IPAs. However, this one comes across more like an IPA. At 6.9% ABV you’d expect a jolt but the balance overcomes the higher ABV. Love the appearance and nose. The dark roasted grain does does not dominate the flavor like a lot of black IPAs

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2009 Great stuff. I had this at the PDX Spring Beer Fest last weekend and it was the standout beer of the show. This beer ran out quite fast there, and there’s no secret why. For reference, see: Stone Eleventh Anniversary.

Bottle from TXJeep
Pours a lively cola black with a rim-friendly head. Nose is pine needle, pine sap, and pine candle. Flavor is grapefruit pine, orange/pine juice, and melted pine candle. Lingers on the tongue. I’m in love; it’s my favorite scent as a beer.

Dark brown / Chestnut colored with a thick beige long lasting head. Pine, orange, grapefruit, burnt carmel, coffee nose. Medium - full bodied, slightly creamy, and dry, with a short slightly bitter finish. Very very good.

Dark IPA from the tap. Nice flavor. Nice head. Lacing isn't overly present. Not a session beer. Great flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A big surprise. I was really expecting a darker version of a standard IPA which this is not. Very nutty, floral and smooth. I enjoyed it completely.

22oz bomber from Old Towne poured into a snifter. Pours a dark brown, almost purple color. Has about 3 fingers of FROTHY off white head. I think this beer is what made the definition of frothy head. The head is somewhat blocking the aroma but it still smells very strongly of hops. Glorious citrus and floral hops. Almost smells like a bitter orange. Medium bitter and lightly both sweet and sour. Has a nice citrus taste to it, think a morning grapefruit with some brown sugar on top. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, this beer is awesome! Definitely something to try. I can’t believe I got this sucker on a discount rack for $2. I’ll be back tomorrow to get more!

Don't usually like this style, but this was a very nice beer. Rated this beer using a different program and unfortunately I'm not able to transfer my comments here.
