4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange/yellow color, with a bit of sediment, and a foamy pale head. Aroma of lemongrass and spice. Pungent first taste. Strong hop flavor/bitterness with the slightest touch of malt that the description mentions. Overall another great beer from the guys at Stone.

Great beer. Got this on at Jungle Jim’s also. Poured nice with a big head. The most remarkable thing about this beer is the flavor that doesn’t stop once you have a drink. There is a lingering that is unique to IPA’s and this one is a supreme bitter taste with hints of fruit. I highly recommend this one to anyone wanting to try a great IPA.

Not a big fan of British IPA’s to begin with but Stone is one of my favorite brewery and I wanted to like it. Graperfruity and grassy hops with a hint of funk. Very bitter, herby and slightly medicinal. A miss for me.

Wow, what a great IPA. The high ABV is masked by strong flavors. Drink slowly and share with a friend.

21 ouncer, Old Philadelphia Ale House at 20th & Green (support your local beer dealer).
Nice concept. I was psyched when I read the description on the bottle and it didn’t disappoint. Succulent floral smell with a taste to match. Typically awesome offering from Stone.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very well balanced with the perfect amount of malt to juxtapose with the hops expected in a double IPA. I am not huge on West Coast IPAs, but I loved this one. Citrus and some sweetness on the tongue. Pours golden and clear, with a nice white foam> medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

medium bitterness, not overly impressed with this ipa. I usually want a face full of hops but was disappointed with aroma and taste.
