Lovely flavor. Major hops with grapefruit and some pine. Medium yellow amber color with medium white head. Right up there with two hearted and furious. I love a great IPA.

Poured into tulip. Really nice golden color with a white finger of head. Smells citrusy and earthy. The taste was well executed! Bitter, earthy hops which end dry with a slight sweetness and citrus explosion! Medium and crisp! One of my favorites! Something not so rare but worth to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy straw colored body. Good amount of white fluffy head. Pungent hoppy earthy aroma. Very bitter flavor. Lots of citrus flavors. Tasty!

Good beer but it seem to bitter for my taste, the after taste was not too good on my opinion. Won't ask for it again, bit will recommend for all the beer lovers

ChrisFields (70) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours more golden than copper with a nice rocky head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Has a nice malty undertone with your standard grapefruit WC hop flavor. Bitterness is pretty high for a non-imperial IPA. Overall, good. Like most of Stone’s offerings.

eRock_2013 (149) - South Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2014
A standard-setting IPA, heavy on the pacific hops with a strong but enjoyable bitterness. The appearance was surprisingly golden clear and luminescent, included a solid white head. Smell and taste were both of a strong flavorful intensity. Very satisfying and fresh hoppy flavor, hoppiness seems intentionally out of balance with malty or sweet flavors. Some floral hop accents. Finishes clean and appetizing for another round. Worthy of its reputation, although not my personal favorite IPA.

PotjeBier (1442) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
5 oz taster from tap @ BJ’s Montebello, CA. Golden color, almost clear. Dense white head with good lacing. Aroma’s: pine, resin, hints of citrus. Pine needles, resin and citrus retronasal. Flavor is full on bitter. Medium bodied. Bitter finish, not too long lasting. Truly Westcoast.

ABS (387) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Straw. Medium amount of white head. Above medium bitterness. Medium body and a bit below medium carbonation. Grapefruit, grass. 4th bottle sampled. A bit overrated maybe?

BLADT (229) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 From bottle. Nice, hazy gold in glass. Super fresh. Dank hemp perfume with mango and citrus spritz. Inviting. Like sticking your face into a bag of hop pellets. Taste has plenty of tropical fruits, tons of green hops and a orange grass follow up. Wonderful. Fresh throughout.

Just gross. Super hoppy, to say the least. I wish it had a nose better than basic hops. Ps, appearance was pleasant.
