3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with an off-white lasting head. The aroma is rather hoppy, combined with notes of caramel - and I also pick up a slight coffee note. The flavor is sweet hoppy with powerful notes of caramel, and lesser notes of yeast. A good IPA.

Tasted during trip to california. 65 cl Bottle. No yeast in bottom. Very pleasant fruit aroma. Golden too light amer colour with a lance head. Very extreme hoppy flavour but not so bitter than you may expected, but sill dry. A very tasteful IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bomber. Pours a golden orange with a thin white head, and plenty of carbonated bubbles rising through the glass. Aroma is pleasant and very fruity. A very smooth citrus flavor with a great balance of hops. Unlike a lot of IPAs this one does not overpower with hops. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange with gold tones and a short, 1/2" head. The head disapates quickly but leaves a tiny amount of lacing. The aroma is pure citrus, ruby red grapfruit with nuances of orange and lemon. The flavor is mostly citrus fruit, kind of bitter with a touch sweetness. The hops are definetly up front but there are hints of malt now and then, especially after it warms up a bit. Mouthfeel seems off to me, not very rich or full but pleasant. The finish is dry, very dry, with a strong grapfruit after taste. This is a well crafted beer but not one of my favorite styles.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & blankboy -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Golden orange, frothy white head. Strong pine like hops. Taste is a balanced bitter, but dare I say subdued and Stone in the same sentence. Medium mouthfeel. Nothing more than a solid balanced bitter IPA, with no hint of its alcohol - nice stuff!

I really like the beers this company puts out. I tried an IPA before and did not like it. But I gave these guys a shot. I still donít like IPAís. Just not for me taste like I am chewing on a flower. Although this is better than the other I tasted, just not for me.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Ah, good olí Stone, you canít go wrong with these guys. Pours a clear amber with a small foamy white head. Awesome aroma of fresh floral hops. Delicious flavour of fresh citrus hops with enough malt to make the taste very well balanced. Excellent and what most IPAís should strive for. If I could I would always have this in my fridge.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 If you really like hops, there probably isnít another beer you should be drinking. It has a very crisp and distinct flavor. The first time I tried it, I wasnít sure it was for me...now...I canít quite get enough.
