4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at City Beer. Pours amber with a thick white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that starts sweet then turns more bitter. This is sort of a cross between a DIPA and an imperial pilsner, and it works pretty well. It’s got lots of grapefruit but also plenty of malt flavor.

Bottled. Interesting noble hop nose, very grassy, orange, bread and caramel. Sweet, malty, bready, grapes, maybe muscat, crackers, interesting. A bit thick, slightly syrupy. Very fruity.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with eggshell white head, aroma brought notes of big white fruits, lots of dank weedy hops, hints of biscuit, more orange, grapefruit, touch of earth. Taste is a big mix of dank hops, pine, grass, hints of orange, slight white fruit, more biscuit, finishing fairly bitter. Your typical stone IPA, very well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Orange hued straw, pale haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet tropical fruit up front, citrusy, a little burning alcohol on the nose.   Strong citrus hop presense on first sip, but also comes across as tropical without being too sweet.   Big malt body, fruity, citrusy, reminds me slightly of 15.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Assertive hop finish, citrusy, mildly sweet.   Very respectable.   Not as juicy as their 15, but still tasty!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sample at a Stone tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Clear golden with a white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma, citric, grassy, piney and resinous. Flavor has some sweetish maltiness, a bit bready, and very tasty hoppiness, citric, piney, grassy and herbal, with a great strong bitterness. Medium-bodied, a bit chewy and heavy. Really nice.

Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A sweet fruity hop nose with some honey. Big flavor of German hops, and it noticeably so with deep sweet lemon and honey, very grainy. Frischen Aromen. Ich konnte viel trinken. Vielleicht werde ich. Auf jeden Fall ist es gut. A big fluffy palate. Superbly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22. Pours a cloudy medium amber. Loose white head. Plenty of lace. Big buttery nose. Seriously buttery...shocking that they would ship this, what with all the extra attention that an anniversary beer from a big brewery gets. Malty, biscuity, sweaty. Creamy slick medium body. Soft carb. Medium toasty caramel, earth, biscuit, and plenty of movie popcorn butter on the mid palate. Slick finish. Toasty, herbal, grassy, buttery finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma is pretty much all hops, resiny, floral and grassy along with a bit of fruit and alcohol. Flavour: Wow, this is a big beer, hoppy and boozy. Big bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. An interesting beer with different hops, I thought it was quite good.
