Enjoy by 12/21/2012, just hit stores today. Can taste the freshness of the hops. Smooth hop aroma, piney, hints if booze too. A nicely constructed West Coast style IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden, yellow with a soapy, white head. Lots of citrus in the nose. Definitely the most fresh tasting brew I’ve tried. After a few sips it’s almost like it’s leaving a sticky resin on my teeth. Stone isn’t afraid to make a hoppy beer and this one is no exception, definitely an experience. Get your hands on any one of the releases if you can, it’s worth it.

Enjoy By 4/20/14; $8.29 bomber from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours golden with a golden-white head. Smells of luscious pine, grapefruit, and melon. Yummy as hell: grapefruit peel, orange peel, pine, and soap.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber, enjoy by 5/16/14. Finally got my hands on this, only had to go to Charleston, SC to get it. Pungent floral nose. Poured a dark, hazy gold with minimal head. Splotches of lace present. Sweet malt with dank pine and tropical fruity flavor. Just a touch boozy. Medium bodied. Couldn’t stop noting the similarities of this one to Lagunitas Sucks.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoy By 4.20.14, bottled. A citrusy floral punch with a sweet full body, this hoppy brew packs a wallop to the senses. A gorgeous golden color with a nice soft white head. Amazing flavor, complicated and simple at the same time, citrus, resin?, grapefruit and sweeter? Something sweet...someone mentioned passionfruit. Perhaps. What I do know for sure? Amazing flavor, amazing experience, from the top of the bomber to the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster from tap @ 38 Degree Alehouse, on 17 April 2014. Enjoy by 05.16.14 batch, so very fresh. Clear golden blonde color. Dense, rocky white head. Aroma’s of resin and citrus. Ratronasal it’s citrus upfront, then resin, some malty sweetness and light skunky. Flavor is moderate bitter, with some fruity sourness and light sweetness. Rather strong alcohol feel. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat herbal and only lightly bitter. Nice, but I expected a bit more.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
4.20.14 batch. From bottle. Clean orange in meg. Massive grapefruit and hemp nose. Some pine cone. Dank to eleven, as advertised. Taste is tangerine and hop pellet, with low roast malts and a consistent pine bitterness behind. Vague watermelon sweetness on finish. I did a double take on the ABV; I would have believe something 30-40% lower. Enjoyed.
