3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy medium orange pour with off-white head. Moderate citrus and floral hop aroma. Taste is is a nice mix of citrus and floral hops with some lighter underlying malt sweetness. Very nice balance, not an over-the-top hop bomb. Real good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a cloudy golden color with a small one-finger white head. The aroma hops, pine, juicy citrus. The taste is very hoppy, hop oil, some citrus, and some breadiness. The aftertaste is full of hops and it lingers around. The mouthfeel is on the medium side and drinkability is quite high for this high of ibu.

Poured from an oversize bottle. Cloudy orange with a pale yellow head. Decent lacing. Aroma is orange and lemon zest, grapefruit, pine resin, and coriander. Flavour is crisp citrus, with lemon and grapefruit standing out. There are also notes of grass, bread, and malts. Light body with moderate carbonation. Awesome double IPA!

It pours cloudy orange, very little head, thin white lacing. The aroma of pine, grass, sweet honey smell too, toffee. The taste is hugely bitter and very grassy, big hop bomb.

meh... Ive had better IPAs from Stone and better IPAs from other breweries. Its a hop bomb, a good and extremely drinkable hop bomb, but a hop bomb none the less.

At a tasting from a bottle. Joey Jordanoff and I concur, solid aroma backed up by a nice balance of hops and malts. A little resin on the palate but not overwhelming. Solid drop.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Brewdog Liverpool. A slightly hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, resin with spicy and pungent orange, lemon and grapefruit. Taste is bitter and hop dominated with flavours of grapefruit, pine, alcohol and spiciness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a waxy texture. A long, dry bitter finish. A solid IPA but too bitter to be really enjoyable, which is a shame.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bomber. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a two-finger dense pillowy head. Leaves lots and lots of lacing on the glass. The aroma of citrus and floral hit me before the top was off the bottle. Taste does not disappoint, and is huge on citrus with a big malty backbone - not caramel, but nice and rich. It’s balanced towards bitter but not overly so. Lightly bitter finish. Very nice.
