4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured out of a 22oz bottle into a tall flute. Cloudy golden color, still opaque with an inch and half of clean-white head.
Lots of floral and citrus scents; mostly grapefruit and a little pear.
There is no doubt that this is an IPA from Stone. The bitterness just claws in and does not let up until minutes afterward. It is difficult to find any other flavor in here; perhaps a little malt sweetness buried in there, but it is still really good.
Light moving towards medium body with moderate carbonation. A slight smoothness to it also.
Very drinkable if you know what you are getting into; this is not an entry level IPA. Hops dominate.

Fresh from the tap at Gesundbrewing in the Castle Pub. Golden-yellow in the glass with stable white head. Genial !!! The whole spectrum, what the hopd can give. Long bitterness in the mouth (100+ IBUs!!!). A so called beer for the fame of the hops. It’s real !!!

clear golden colour, huge, creamy yellowish off-white head; aroma of overripe grapefruit, tangerine, maybe mango, too, pine resin, and some herbal notes; taste is the same with biscuits, syrupy notes and some peppery spiciness; perfect balance of hops and malts! I love it!

Keg at Bitter Phew. Look, it’s good, but not worth wetting your kecks over. Kind of like the NZ Sauvignon Blanc trend, the mega hoppy IPA thing will probably fade as the hipsters grow up. Hazy orange, off white head. Big citrus hoppy aroma with slight flowery edge prepares you for..... surprise surprise.... a big hoppy hit that hangs around for ages in a long bitter bitter finish. Kecks remain thankfully bone dry
