3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Heavy IPA with a balance of the malt and hop flavor. Great dry hop tending towards blue cheese and pine more than citrus.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle enjoy by 09-13-13. Pours a dark hazy gold with moderate white head. Intense resinous aroma reminiscent of onions and pine along with some tropical fruits. Taste is bitter and resinous with a decent caramel malt backbone. Well made DIPA which could be more on the fruity side.

9.13.13. Oh yeah. Stone are just great at this sort of stuff. Very tropical on the nose. In the mouth it is light and drinkable for its stature. A good, rolling bitterness that comes in waves without taking too much out on the palate. Very tasty even though I’m not in an IPA mood at this time.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoy By 08-02-13: Pours a clear, brilliant gold with a thing head and some lace. Sweet tropical fruit aroma with a light booziness, some pineapple & custard apple. Fantastic hop flavour - tropical fruits (pineapple) but balanced nonetheless. Crisp body with good carbonation. Really, really special.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thin bright white head of fine bubbles with minimal carbonation. Awesome aroma. Bit of cat urine up front but then dissipates away to a nice juicy fruit aroma. Lots of citrus and pears along with a hint of mint and flowers. Color is a hazy orangish brown. Bitterness not a prominent up front in the flavor but comes on strong late swallow. Up front roastyness and a tad of sweet caramel then is slowely overpowered by the herbal hops presence. Grapefruit pith, lemongrass and bitter dandelion leaves. Rather dry but the bitterness keeps the mouth salivating for more. Finishes a bit pasty and dry with a lingering fresh herbal bitterness. A damn good IIPA. Wish I had bought more of them!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoy by 9.13.13. A clear copper body with a white head that had great retention and good lace. A strong aroma a nice caramel malt presence upfront with a strong bland of citrus and pine hops, with a bit of an edge going towards the resinous pine notes. A slight sense of alcohol. Flavor started out initially sweet from the malts. The hops were really fresh The pine hops seemed to cut right through the sweet malts and the grapefruit hops seemed to balance everything out. Alcohol seemed to have a little more to say in the flavor as apposed to the aroma. Finish was slightly dry. Best double IPA i have had in a while.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Golden to light amber color. Lighter appearance than I was expecting. A huge citrus bomb hit the nose. Extremely fresh smelling. It’s hard to find fresh West coast IPAs on the East coast. The taste shines like the aroma. There’s huge orange, tangerine, a little tropical and floral nuances. It’s extremely crisp on the palate and goes down almost too easy. The ABV is practically unnoticeable. This maybe the best offering I’ve had from Stone. Truly, an amazing beer and one of my tops.

Poured a dark orange color from the bottle, aromas of fresh citrus, pine, grapefruit, and some light zest. Flavors follow suit, fresh citrus, light bitter grapefruit, and a touch of pine in the finish.
