Smells of big hops, citrus, floral notes and pine tree. Amber copper in color with off white head. Smells delicious! Flavors of hops and citrus with a slight carmel flavor; full body flavor with a bitter finish. Very good imperial IPA!

Pour was amber to orange, thin to moderate off-white colored head, thins to a white head, good persistance. Aroma of tropical and citrus fruits, faint pine. Aroma of the same, herbs and faint grass. A great concoction, certainly pushes the limits of abv too. Tasty, fresh, good bite, moderate body, highly drinkable for a dIPA. Nice, job, Stone!

Growler from B2 Taphouse. Outstanding DIPA. Grapefruit, Pine and Caramel. Solid hops. Resiny. Bitter finish balanced with just a bit too much sweet. Tasty.

Hoppy as FUCK. Very good, clean, and strong. Almost numbs the pallet. Plenty of alcohol, but goes down easy

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Bottle from Frida aka Sunken, thanks a lot!
Pours orange with a white, fluffy head.
Aroma has mostly bready/cookie dough malt and pine hops.
Taste has bready malt, a lot of grape, pine/resinous and just bitter hops, some alcohol as well. Very well balanced.
Body is full, carbonation is medium, mouth feel oily yet smooth.
After taste is really long and heavy bitter.

Bottle. Pours a amber with nice head. Smell is fantastic. Pine and a bit floral. Caramel. Alcohol is there tinny bit. I’m not a ipa guy but this is some very good stuff. Nice balance at such a high % and as much stuff going in. Bravo.

Pours a clear copper color. Smells of citrus and pine. It is crazy explosive in your mouth with tons of bitter hop character. Very high in alcohol.

Clear copper pour with near white ring of head. Big bouquet of massive hoppy citrus. Resinous hoppy citrus oily sweetness. Its a super-hopped, punch-you-in-the-face brew, that is surprisingly sweet.

Well balanced malt and hops. The hops really show their complexity moments after the first sip. The malt coats your tongue preparing it for the knuckle sandwich it is about to experience. It isn't a stupid amount of hops for nothing. It's another great brew from Stone.
