On tap. Started out with aromas of hops and some background citrus and fruit. The finish was different, it left my mouth feeling dry. Overall I enjoyed it.

Very, very hoppy both in bitterness and flavor, but its actually overmatched by a malty sweetness. Caramely, toasty flavor complimented by a smooth hop flavor. Extra dry-hopping really shows.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was average, no head at all. Taste was hop foward with a strong finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is a hazy golden, one finger pure white head, a few bubbles rising. Aroma- you can smell this from a long way away. The usual hoppy fruitiness, grapefruit, orange, tropical fruit juice, quite a lot of bready malt detectable too, hints of caramel. Taste- loads of hop bitterness, quite smooth in the mouth, malty, oily hop resins coat the mouth, not that much carbonation, citrus fruits and pineapple juice, zesty orange, a big bitter finish. The malt presence makes this one stand out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
caramel, grass, spruce, citrus, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, light body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish
Blast of citrus pine hops upon pouring. White foam that dissipates fairy soon with light lacing. Bread/caramel malt initially, then medium bitterness takes over. Medium carbonation with a light oily mouthfeel. Spruce like bitterness is the finish that lasts. Pretty dry at the end. Quite good.

I love stone IPAs but this is not one of my favorites. Still better than 90 percent off all other IPAs though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not how I remembered it when I first tried it. The aroma is more piney than citrus, yeasty but less so than a Belgian hybrid Bold, both semi- sweetness and bitterness are way up there and consistent sip after sip. Surprisingly, pleasant butterscotch lingers briefly at the back of the throat then dissipates quickly. Viscosity is about of a 75% DPI. Unique, superb and I have overlooked and missed out on a beast of a beer searching for the latest and the greatest.. It won’t happen again

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very smooth IPA. Bitterness lingers, after a dry finish. Warmth in the back of the throat. Orange-copper colour with little or no head. Mild hoppy aroma, but not overpowering. Medium lacing on a beer mug with handle. Would buy again, but would like to taste on draft, rather than the bottle I just drank.

From a bottle... Aroma is consumed by hops; taste is the same, albeit with a sticky taste that lingers. I wasn’t around when the Brits were invading India but I suspect this beer is what they had in mind...

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Now available in Alberta, Canada. Definitely enjoyed this a bit more than their ’Go To’ even though I usually prefer the tropical citrus to bitter and malty IPAs. This one was more enjoyable to me because it has a lot more character and isn’t so one noted - has pine, resin, some citrus notes and a nice malt backbone.

Just an awesome beer. Hoppy and refreshing with some citrus then that bitterness on the back end. Enjoy every sip, one of my favorite ipa’s
