4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with an "enjoy by" date printed on the neck. Served in a Samuel Adams pint glass.
Appearance: One finger head goes down eventually and stays there until the end. It has a clear, bright gold color, and leaves some very nice lacing.
Smell: The smell is fantastic, with a dominating herbal hop scent and some pine, fruit and spice notes present too.
Taste: This beer has a big hop character, overwhelmingly so. It’s very herbal, spicy and bitter. You’ve gotta love hops to really appreciate the details and character in this. If you don’t it’ll be just another (albeit good) strong, bitter brew.
Moutfeel: It feels creamy, full bodied and smooth. It leaves a tingling sensation on the palate that’s quite curious.
Overall: An amazing brew in every single aspect. If you love hops, IPA’s or just something crisp, bitter and challenging, you’ll love this beer. If you don’t, you’ll probably be put off by the intensity of it all.

I think my experience was tainted. After i finished I noticed it expired three months ago. Not anything special. But the bar sucked too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is very dank hops, slightly earthy, followed by a burst of tropical fruit and pine. Appearance is a lovely golden amber, white head, nice and clear. Taste is dank, earthy, slight tropical fruit and pine, nice bitterness rounds out a pretty complex flavor. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, decently crisp carbonation, aftertaste offers a lot of pine and more tropical than dank profile. Overall, Stone does a very good job with their IPAs. And just about anything else I’ve ever had by them.
