3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy amber color with a huge marang head which left huge lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, pine, vanilla and malts. Strong and hoppy. Taste has a strong pine hop presence. Another excellent IPA.

Big bottle. I am a big fan of malty brews, but this is one of the best hoppy beers out there. The brew is bitterly hoppy, tastes hoppy, and smells hoppy. The hop intensity is awesome but not too much. I was very impressed by this wonderful brew. If you have a taste for the hops, by all means, get yourself a big bottle of this beer.

Pours gold with a finger of really soapy white head. Really killer lacing throughout. Nose is ALL floral hops. Yum. Taste is big hops up front but with a deftly executed malt note. Fairly balanced actually. It sits somewhat thin on the tongue and has a nice bracing bitter finish. Pretty much the epitome of the style. Nice beer.

Excellent IPA. Lots of floral hops in the nose and a similar taste. Finishes smooth with a hint of citrus.

Just about as sessionable an ipa as there is. Very piney with a lot of grapefruit. Goes great with anything spicy

Wonderfully hoppy with a delicious bite. Balanced bready flavor, with a great flowery aroma. This coupled with the Double Bastard are my first experiences with Stone, and Iím a better man for it.

A harmonic, melodic balance of ingredients that fuse together to provide me with everything I look for in a beer. I really enjoyed this one.

Another perfectly crafted brew from Stone. IPA is not my favorite style, but I like this beer a lot. It goes perfectly with Indian food. The aroma is great, the hops are pronounced and well-balanced with the other complexities of the flavor. A very drinkable, very good beer.

Wonderful in every respect, my favorite part has got to be the middle, with itís brilliant hoppiness and an almost sweet finish
