4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Very hoppy aroma. Pours a light golden color with a nice head. Very floral taste with hints of citrus. A hop hodge podge that brings forth many different hop aspects to the mix. The alcohol content isn’t noticed because of the easy drink ability.

very fresh, citrusy, floral, big chewy body, this is some serious stuff. extremely tasty and fresh hops all over this thing. reminds me of green flash imperial IPA, which is a favorite. this is how you do a double IPA

This brew has a hoppy flavor that I’ve never tasted before. It takes some getting used to, but once u do it is very enjoyable. Nice balance.of sweet and bitter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoy by 11-12-13 purchased at corner beverage in columbus ohio, polaris location. This beer pours a brilliant copper clear with a small head of tiny white bubbles. Nose is strong evergreen needles, grapefruit and just a hint of green grass. Taste is somewhat restrained green grass with hints of cedar. finishes a bit more broadly with evergreen and citrus on the finish, just a touch bitter. very fluid, not very heavy, but not thin mouthfeel. slightly fizzy. I know that this is going to sound contrite, but this does seem to be a fresh beer. the aspects of the hops seem to elicit newly mown grass or harvested grain. That is exactly what they are going for with this beer, but they have nailed it and it works beautifully.

All I can say is wow! Aroma, color, mouth feel and taste all are beyond what I was expecting. Stone has set a new bar for batch brews. This is one I will try to clone until I get it right.

11.12.13 Batch. Crystal clear golden yelliw color. Got this right off the delivery truck st Joe Canals West Deptford. The aroma is flowery, but not overly strong. The aroma should be strong for a good IPA. You can clearly taste the hops however.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoy by 11-12-13 bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of pine and resin with underlying grapefruit and caramel. Flavor starts with bitter pine and grass and has a growing resin note and a touch of onion with a hint of grain in the finish.
