4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle poured into an English Pub pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow with a thick fluffy white head. Smells of grapefruit, melon, floral, and sweetish malt. Tastes of grapefruit, citrus, light crystal malts and bread. Medium body with a tongue coating sweetness in the middle and a bitter beginning and end that lingers for ages and ends with a medium dryness. Very nice beer (at least for hop heads).

Hazy orange pour frothy white head. Sweet aroma but bitter hoppy taste. Unusually tasty for being so bitter. Mild after taste. Not a big IPA guy but this ainít bad.

A very strong beer.
Bitter, hoppy.. crisp.. um.. toasty.. roasty.. ghosty.
A good strong beer, not for the faint of heart. The 100 IBUís shine through like a fat girl riding a tricycle.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 btl. nice, bright amber colour. brief release of gasses with a small head that dissipates rapidly. smells light with hops and citrus. i found this beer to taste a bit flat. otherwise, the flavours were mostly good:malty, nutty, ripe fruit, alcohol, and HOPS. too many hops, almost. it upsets the balance of the beer and is slightly sickining paired with the lack of carbonation. still, twas a good try.

Yeah Baby! Hophead wet dream! Go on wit yo bad selves Stone. Strong pine and citrus with that distinctive Stone smooth finsh. They are the masters of the clean yet un-watery finish.

pours a gorgeous gold/copper hue, with a nice off white head that dissipated quickly with nice lacing. incredibly strong hop aromas with an equally strong pine tip aroma. bitter is an understatement for this IPA. overwhelmingly bitter with a very strong pine tip taste with a nice smooth bittersweet ending. very memorable finish. overall, probably a little intimidating for the average beer drinker; but for an IPA enthusiest.... RAVISHING!

This is a great IPA. Nice and hoppy and lots of flavor. Stone really has something going with this beer. It also has a creamy side to it that is really nice. The golden color adds to its experience, nice and light, not very dark.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours deep gold with a long lasting head, aroma is pine and resiny hops, the flavor has some malt character, the heavy hop flavor is piney with slight citrus notes and very spicy aftertaste. full mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
