Thanks to mar for this one...WOW! Amazing. Rich gold color with a mostly white head. Aromas are full and delicious: citrus, pine and some malt. This beer is so well balanced...not overly malty on the finish but just so delicious and perfect. GREAT BEER!

4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a deep amber/orange with a large frothy white head. Strong floral hoppy smell with hints of citris and malts. Smooth to drink. Bitterness after taste is almost done to perfection (not too much and not too less).

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. I didn’t think this stacked up to Ruination but it is still a contender. Dry, biting hops keep it interesting but it is still easy to drink. Keep ’em coming Stone!

12 oz bottle, enjoy by 05.03.10, I wish they had the bottled on date since it is an IPA.
Pours into my american pint glass with a nice gold color and a foamy and rocky white head that takes a bit to recede leaving gobs of lacing.
It has a decent smell though not overly intense. It is very citrusy and zesty with also some herbal grassiness. There isn’t much malt to the scent of this beer.
It is smooth and hoppy with a good amount of biscuity malt backing and a nice bitter finish. Luscious but insanely drinkable. This is the quintessential quaffing IPA.
The mouthfeel is nice and medium bodied. This stuff is so easy to put back, it is like drinking water, far higher drinkability than a light beer especially when it is nice and warmed up.
Overall a great pick for American IPA if you want a superb quaffing beer.

This is a new IPA, sporting a gargoyle emblem. A transparent bottle that really shows big bubbles in there. A bit dry aftertaste a surprise but otherwise a nice drink. Can be session starter or go with food. Hops and citrus. However bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Re-rate 1/24/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Slightly hazy deep golden. Aroma of piney and grapefruity hops and some malt, slightly caramelly. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and continues with lingering grapefruity bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice and quaffable. 6/3/7/3/14=3.3
Bottle. Clear orange color with a medium off-white head. Floral and fruity aroma with lots of hops, citrus, and some peach. Flavor is malty sweet with some caramel and some fruitiness, and evolves into lovely hoppy, grapefruity, bitterness. Nice full-bodied. Great and refreshing. 8/4/8/4/16=4

Better than I remembered it. Spicey, malty, very, very hoppy. A terrific Left Coast IPA. HopHeads, gotta get you a bottle. Thanks to herbjones for the refresher.
This beer rocks.
The color of molten Gold. The aroma is very organic, very floral. The flavor is very spicy and floral with hops galore. This hophead delight has a dry, crisp, bitter finish. An excellent IPA. They should require a liscense in order to drink this beer. If you’re not a hophead, you need not apply.

Bottle at Henrik Øl og Vinstove in Bergen, shared with Elisabeth. Unclear golden. A few patches on the surface. Sweet and bitter aroma of citric hops. Well blended flavour of grapefruit, lemon and orange shells. Malty sweetness beneath. Decent dry bitter ending. A real pleaser to the palate (18.06.2009).
