almost surreal imbodiment of what makes an IPA an IPA. the aromas are almost as satisfying of the beer from pour to finish

12 oz bottle. So is there a perfect "100" beer? Is a 99 as good as you can get? The wordy back label scared me off so bad I had to wait a night and calm down before I could open and drink this (gift) bottle. Wow. Intense is all I can say. The first beer I ever remember drinking that actually made me THIRSTIER as I drank it. Initially quite dry, fantastically over-hopped, aromatic (almost medicinal), and nearly as destructive to my tastebuds as the label warned (no food was involved no no great loss). Funny thing was, as I worked my way to the bottom of the glass, I became less intimidated and more satisfied. Not a "scary" IPA at all, just "big". More please!

This was a most delightful beer. It had a flowery aroma with a taste to match. Very drinkable even with such a high IBU.

Wow! This was a great IPA! You could almost chew the hops. Lovely light amber color with a fine head. The taste still had room for some subtle grapefruity tendancies. Well done Stone!

Stellar, not Stella. Everything in his brew s fresh, from the hop aroma, the malt flavor, the oil resigns on he back of the toungue. This brew just kills it. Sticking with this tonight...canít go back to anything after this one for now. Will be reviewing Friday with some new bombers. Defiantly snap this one up if you see it.

I recommend this beer to everyone, yep everyone... for the sole purpose of comparison.. on a scale from 1-10 this baby delivers a 10 on bitterness... with over 100 ibuís ruination is a great barometer for rating the bitterness of a beer. Only the true counisour will drink this beer and enjoy it. I hated it!!! I shared a $7.00 12oz bottle with a friend, 6 oz was all i could handle!!!!! Try it for sure...

Bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a small white head. Enticing aroma of citrus and pine. Hops drown out virtually everything else except a slight malty taste. Finish is intensely bitter and herbal.

22Oz bottle. Hoppy aroma.Classic golden tan with a bit of red. Off white head. Plenty of hops with good overall balance as some malt shows up. Grapefruit and some pleasant bitterness so you don’t forget this is an IPA. The bottle doesn’t actually say this is a double IPA but Stone’s ID does. I won’t argue with that. Another Stone great.
