Great. Hazy orange pour with white head. Aroma is citrus. Mainly orange. Taste is orange, wood and citrus rind. Creamy mouthfeel but nice carbonation burn.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
650 mL bottle. Hazy orange-brown with a small white head. Orange-tangerine citrus in the nose, with some caramel and booze. Not a huge aroma. The flavour, on the other hand, is huge. The flavour goes on and on and on. It is a true palate wrecker. Do not attempt to taste another beer afterdrinking one of these.

Canít say I enjoy this one too much, but itís more my taste than anything that Stoneís doing. They stay consistent in their bitter, high IBU beer and this is no exception. Little bit of citrus but overwhelming hop bitterness. If thatís your thing, go for it!

22 ounce bottle poured a dark orange color with aromas of citrus, pine, grapefruit, and some light bitter peel. Flavors are big citrus notes with light bitter aftertaste, a solid DIPA.

Shared with my bro. Appearance is gorgeous, like a summer sunrise yellow amber orange. Aroma is hops for years, all floral and fruit. When you sip, your palate is completely molested, scorched, done; you will taste nothing but hops and bite with barely a hint of sweetness. Aftertaste lingers on your breath and reminds you there is more in the glass. I loved this beer, my brother was shocked by it haha. Nice job Stone!

Tap at Monkís Kettle, SF. Deep golden color. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is oh so fresh. Aftertaste all kinds of bitter, but itís still very drinkable, and very good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma has wonderful caramel malts and and citrus, resinous hops. Lovely. Medium amber orange hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily with soft/avg carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall a monster IIPA with a hue malt presence. Very big, very thick, very sweet and very bitter. All together it is very^4 good!
