A classic, though a bit dated and I see why they replaced it. Very bitter and lean with not the same kind of aroma you get from current DIPAs.

A good old fashioned IPA with loads of bitter hops, hold those new fangled floral aromas, thanks. It’s all about the pine and the grapefruit which are just ALL OVER your tongue. It holds its alcohol well for a double IPA.

Pours clear light amber with big frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, pine, some melon. Taste is bitter, not excessive, with some residual sweetness. Somewhat dry, medium body, soft carbonation, alcohol well inserted. Really balanced imperial ipa.

Draught @ Albion. Hazy bright orange with small foamy off-white head, light floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, bitter hoppy taste that starts sweetish, full body, long bitter finish. Great IPA.

Väldigt humlig doft med inslag av karamell, blommor, gräs. Jäkligt god. En rejäl besk som sitter i länge. @SBWF2015

Bottle. Aroma is flowerish, some dough. Taste is molassess, pine juice, resin, some tea, some hibiscus. Preppy and dry finish. Nice!

From bottle, poured lighter than expected with good hop aroma. Plenty of hop variety in the flavour and underpinned with good bitterness. A complex yet balanced IPA; not sessionable but you’d enjoy a couple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
- Nose: salted caramel malt, with pine-y background and occasional hint of Seville orange zest
- Body: Slightly creamy (you can feel high ABV) but still feels quite high in the mouth. Really big/harsh grapefruit + pine hops.
- Finish: long finish; hops + caramel malts tangle a bit but hops win out; are they almost too bitter?
- Hop-xplosive! I prefer Stone IPA’s hop-malt balance. If that offends hop heads, sorry. I’ll drink more of this in order to see your POV

i think it smells really malty to be honest, amber gold body with some white lacing, sweet grapefruit leads into the hop bitterness, rather good but need more actual flavour!

A murky copper colour with a long lasting off white head. Getting stone fruit and pine on the nose, a bit of citrus thrown in too - pretty hefty. This is so incredibly smooth. There’s the usual pine and resin culprits to taste - the big hop flavour makes it hard to pin point any particular flavours; it’s just big. That’s not to say the balance isn’t there - plenty of malt back end to round it out and dull down the harsh a little. Velvet finish - which is really saying something, given the barrage of bitterness leading into it. Well carbonated and good thickness. Sweet.
