4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A strong aroma of reisling grapes and floral hops with a touch of citrus. Appears a copperish gold, some white lace. Taste starts a bit piney, but not overwhelming, fades into mild grapefruit bitterness, but is followed by a gentle sweet floral flavor, balanced and beautiful! Palate is lively, nice. Overall, wow! This is a great beer!

04/20/14 variant. Big, Bold, Beautiful, IPA true to the style, this batch a bit sweeter than the last. Still Raining Grapefruit, Pine, Resin, Hops on the palate. Just had a stronger malt backbone to me. #2 favorite style behind PtE. Stone does beer right. We who are about to drink this salute you...

Tap at Publicity Bellevue Tn. Hella hoppy goodness. Probably my favorite brew from Stone and that is saying something. It's a hophead's dream!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: mostly clear gold color, pours with a large off white head that takes a while to settle, excellent head retention
Aroma: citrus, grass, pine, hints of bread, the hops are definitely king here
Taste: citrus, pine, strong bitterness, a strong alcohol flavor is there but concealed well, spicy
Palate: soft carbonation, leaves a bitter aftertaste, moderate mouthfeel, alcohol is there,crisp
Overall: this is the 4-20-14 version, there is something unique about this beer, something that tastes different than most beer, it’s very good, just wish the abv was lower because it goes down easy

I really enjoyed this 4-20-2014 DIPA. Clear golden color with nice white head. Great hop aroma with lots of pine resin and citrus. Very bitter finish that paired great with a pizza.
