22 oz. bottle (02.15.13) from Total Wine (Park Place) - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Very light lacing. Aroma and flavor is resin and pine hops. The beer coats the tongue. Medium body. Nothing complex, just another good offering from Stone.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
When I finally got to pick up a bottle of this it was a momentous day. I kept my 4-20-16 bottle for a shelf ornament. Everything I could want in an IPA. Medium, clean crisp body. Orange hued golden body. Piggy white head. Pine and citrus hops that are Dank as dank can be. (Takes me back to a more experimental time)... Anyhow my favorite IPA release of all time.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from a large bottle at Bishops Arms Örebro. This was 10-31-15. Hoppy smell with a malte base that made me think of sponge cake. Similar taste. Surprisingly hoppy. Very drinkable, even though the hops has faded some.

Golden with a white head - Good hop aroma with citrus - Good malt body to support a good hop profile that has citrus and bitterness - The hop and citrus goes into the finish - This was good

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (07.04.16 version). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, grass, apricot, resin), with notes of alcohol, cotton candy, and plastic. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
A rather plastic and candyish nose brings down the hop allure (which are mostly attractive albeit fairly raw/green as well), and in the mouth it’s rather acidic and harsh. A relatively average, somewhat clunky DIPA.

A taster at Taps and Caps on a very hot day. Left work early and do not have the kids so all is good. An excellent IPA.
