A very nice, very rough IPA. Potent in grapefruit, pine, and citrus. A bit resinous at the end.

On tap. Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet grapefruit, apple, and candied lemon peel aroma and taste with a thick creamy and chewy palate and a bitter candy finish. Very good.

A very good ipa built on a very good body. Enjoyed the spectrum of hop flavors from grapefruit to pine. Got the last 2 bombers in the shop

22 ounce bottle - great color - not super piney - fruity apricot notes - doesn't destroy the palate like some IPA's can.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very unusual beer. Appearance is more like a pilsner, bright and bubbly. Hops are subdued on the nose, alcohol very well hidden in taste. I really enjoyed it!

Aroma is yeast, citrus, light tropical fruit, hop resin notes and malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit/candy, mild hop resin, a hint of grapefruit and a mix of bitter, dry and slight sugar/fruit in the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with medium fluffy white head. Aroma is juicy citrusy hops with some sweet malty notes. Taste is floral and grassy hops upfront that fades into some sweet bready malt on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter spruce hops with some notes of sweet malt coming through. Palate is thin and somewhat sticky. Overall a nice balanced double IPA with sweet and bitter playing together nicely.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pine and earthy hop notes start this beer off, with a pour that shows a clear light amber with a full white head. Notes of spice, citrus, and earthiness come from the hops, with a long lingering bitterness. Light bodied, and really easy drinking. A fine addition to the Stone line of IIPA’s.

Yah Germany, this is solid, tons of hops, pure tasting, heady beer, hop prfile is pretty perfect front to back, awesome balance with a great fruity/piney flavor as well....awesome brew, how stone continues to churn out so many solid IPAs at once is beyond me, without sacrificing quality, abv barely detected.

Fresh orange citrus and bitter hops with sweet sugary notes. Bright orange body and thick slightly off white head. Fresh crisp hops and citrus with a slight dry almond and earthy spice. Dry, bitter, and carbonated on the palate.
