4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Easily one of the best IPA’s on the market. Beautiful citrus bomb with loads of bountiful hops. Killer, killer IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 My go to IPA. Nice golden color with a noticeable white head. Loads of hops on the nose and palate - the way only Stone knows how. Somewhat unbalanced but a fantastic brew none the less.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice citrus and hop aroma, decent colour and head. The flavour is bitterness, bitterness and more bitterness pretty much obscuring everything else. A classic of the seemingly trendy idea that ramming a tonne of hops in a beer makes you a good brewer. It doesn’t and this is a poor beer, badly blended. The plethora of this type of beer is frankly getting really boring now.

Way hoppy, nicely bitter, pours a tad cloudy. A good beer to teach that Budweiser swiller what a beer should be.

Another score for stone brewing company. This heavily hopped american IPA is a beauty. Copper/bronze and clear with vivacoius bubbles and average head with a gorgeous hop aroma. As an IPA lover and hophead I appreciate the somewhat overtly hopped nature of the beer. It is certainly a little out of balance in favor of the hops though. The malt is just there like a backdrop, a canvas for Lee Chase's bitter palate of warrior, centennial, and whatever else he has hiding in there. I could buy a six-pack of this and drink two a night after work and be happy.

Dark, golden, pours with a nice head. Viciously good. One of the most satisfying IPA’s I’ve head yet. The bitterness makes this beer. Stone does another great job of punishing the palate with an excellent beer.

First and foremost I am usually not a IPA fan, I prefer darker beers. But this is quite a well made beer. Very Very Hoppy with a lot of flavor in it. A little bit of bitterness and a fruity flavor but overall a good beer. This is my first Stone Bewing Beer so I look forward to trying the rest of the line-up

Pours slightly hazy,, with rich golden color. Impressive citrus flavors with a moderate, yet smooth, bitter finish. This is a very dry beer without almost no sweet taste. An excellent beer.

One of my all time favorites. Golden color, substantial head when properly poured. Love the big grapefruit nose! Awesome citrus, crisp taste. Dangerously chugable. HOPS! Mmmmm

Hazy golden color with hoppy resinous aroma. Crisp. Floral honey bitterness lasts on the tongue. Near perfect IPA and one of my favorites. This one is all about the hops.
