3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle: Pours a clear amber with a medium ivory head that provides nice lacing. The aroma is mostly tropical citrus. The taste is hard to characterize. I get some of the lemon and some sweetness coming from the malt. The mouth feel is nicely balanced. Iím not sure what to think about this beer. I like but I donít love it. With that said it has grown on me sip after sip.

Bomber from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Citrusy aroma, shockingly, along with floral, caramel and the faintest bit of rye. The taste is lemon, grapefruit, lime, rye, spicy herbal notes, tropical and marmalade notes. Medium bodied, no heat, average carbonation. Solid beer.

In a word= delicious! Big citrus aroma lemon zesty zing. Appearance is orange-amber and very clear. Taste is huge on the citrus hop flavors, just fantastic. Full body malt balance and just chewy enough to last. I need to go buy a case of this asap:)

The brew pours a beautiful golden/burnt color. I poured a off white three finger head into a tulip. Smells great, very lemony citrus. Goes down smooth. The taste resembles the aroma. A great DIPA for a hot summer day.

Bottle from Scott. Aroma was straight up lemon and lemon verbena. We agreed there was a soapy aspect to this one, and I've used lemon verbena soap many a time to know. Palate is great other than the emulsion. Lots of head to boot. Pretty good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma- lemongrass, citrus, spices, hops
Appearance- hazy golden orange, pillowy white head, alcohol presence, nice lacing
Taste- lemon juice, other varieties of citrus, hop bite, sweet malts
Palate- fantastic body and mouthfeel for an IPA, slick and coating
Overall- Nearly identical to DFHís Hellhound IMO, which certainly isnít a bad thing. Different from the usual West Coast IPAís that Stone offers.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of citrus, bitter orange, peach, and cherry, with pine. Classic deep clear amber color with a light, lacey head. Medium sweet, touch of sour, salt, and strong bitter finish. Full body, lively carbonation, sticky creamy, with a long, piney bitter finish. Thereís a lot going on here. Like a complicated woman who is hot and sweet and salty and makes you want to slap her.
