Bottle. Pineapple and juniper/yew aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange-pineapple malt and moderately bitter juniper/yew flavor - reminds me of the shubbery in front of my parent’s house (yews and arbor vitaes) than first got me interested in my career as a shrubber.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, dull golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Grapefruit, tropical fruit, cream, sweet grain, bread in the nose all with a bit of spiciness. A little chewy, toasted bready, cracker, slightly tangy, herbal hoppy, slightly dank flavor with a slight veggie note. Probably my least favorite IPA released by Stone to date.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"I was a little apprehensive about the all German schtick, but if anyone’s earned the right to tinker, it’s Stone. Comes across as a delicious and incredibly hoppy yet soft imperial IPA/imperial pilsner hybrid, bringing the best of both into play. Unique yet familiar. Bready, sweet, yet piney and grassy and spicy and weed all rolled into one. Thanks ill have another. I imagine better now, after say September, it’ll fade."
