4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 What can I say but yum. This has to be one of my favorites, a wonderfully fruity sweet hop aroma accompanies the flavor wonderfully. If you love hops, this brew’s for you, flavor is full and fruity, with good carbonation for the beer. Pours a thick white head with a clear golden body. A great brew.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2009 Nice bitter IPA, has an airy mouthfeel that doesn’t seem as crisp as it should be. one dimensional, not very clean. very orangey throughout. The aroma is the best thng about it, huge outstanding hoppy nose. the rest is good but it’s not as good as torpedo or union jack. definitely good but overhyped.

Like everything else from Stone, this is a great beer. Nice and Hoppy but not overbearing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Pours a dark amber with a lasting white head. Not very carbonated. Long bitter aftertaste, but well balanced and creamy mouthfeel. Actually doesn’t seem as bitter as advertised. All in all, a very good beer.

Outstanding IPA. Pours a orange(ish) coppery gold color. Not much of a noticable nose. Floral citrus flavor goes a long way. Somwhat sweet, but tart hoppy finish is memorable. A Home Run.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden copper with sparse carbonation and a huge long lasting rocky head. Bready citrusy aromas. Touch of malt up front and hops mid and late for a sustained hop finish.

Pours a clean golden amber with an off-white head that lasted thoughout the pint. The aroma and flavor was a sweet floral balance. One of my favorite IPAs.

good ipa, nothing special. good flavor and clean bitter aftertaste. kind of a boring beer by stone’s standards.
