5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The year is 2010, an Aussie craft beer novice travels to sunny California with his brother, he tastes Stone IPA, he is first overwhelmed by the crazy hop blast, by the end of the longneck he is converted forever to hoppy beers. Well done Stone, you made a beer wanker out of this Aussie! Perfection.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Bier Markt Ottawa.
Appearance: Pours a
slightly hazy golden colour with a trace of white head. Not a lot of lacing.
Pine and more pine.
Pine and some grapefruit.
Average viscosity and carbonation.
Overall: This is a decent but highly overrated IPA. Lots of the pine aroma and flavour but not much else. How this gets a 100/100 rating on ratebeer I’ll never know.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Attractive golden amber with a haziness about it. Fruity and juicy tropical fruit aroma - passionfruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, pine, honey, lightly toasted bread. Lots of pine and grassy hops in the taste, with grapefruit, honey and biscuit. A little metallic in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied. Pretty solid IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Tap) Tropicla, citrus, grassy. Hops are too overpowering, and aftertaste is astringent. I don’t like it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden orange with a small but pillowy off-white head, leaving sporadic lacing. Aroma is citrus and stone fruit hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Flavor is consistent with the smell but in reverse - starts with good malt balancing but ends with a good hop bitterness that lingers until the next sip. A little sticky on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours golden yellow, thin white head medium bubbles. The aroma is pine, grass, zest, don’t get much else. As expectee strong hops flavour, everlasting bitter finish. It’s one dimensional but nails it.

Pours a clear amber with a small foamy white head. Awesome aroma of fresh floral hops. Delicious flavour of fresh citrus hops with enough malt to make the taste very well balanced.
