Pi Day 2015 enjoy by. Poured a clear gold/amber colour with a fluffy white head that left beautiful lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, and bready malts. Flavor is sweet grapefruit and caramel malts. Medium bodied, chewy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a moderate to assertive bitterness on the finish. 3rd from this series for me, 2nd best.

So I fear that the version I had (which happened to be two days before its drink-by date) wasn’t as aromatic as it may have been when it was brewed. It was big, and overtly Stone (plenty of Cascade), but nothing that indicated/hinted that I was benefiting by drinking it when I did.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Taste date 3/12/15 almost a month past Enjoy By date..... Poured from 22 oz bottle into tulip. Hazy golden color. One and a half finger white head. Aroma is full of hopes, floral, grass and primarily citrus. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Somewhat long, lightly bitter finish. Yet crisp.
Overall great beer. One of the better IPAs I have had, but IPAs are not my specialty.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. 3/14/15 version. This is a big boy, very heavy, very boozy. Definitely feels like a double....a lot "bigger" than I expected. Definitely had the hops and maybe a little bit of honey.

Pours a clear golden color with an eggshell head that quickly disipates. Smells of floral hops, pine and a bit of citrus. The taste is mostly piney with some floral and citrus notes, bitter but not unbearably so, goes down smooth with a dry bitter finish.
