Copper brown, small white head. Very hoppy, but also oaky and smokey aroma. Hoppy flowery and very bitter. Some sweetness in the front. Long bitter aftertaste. Hopheads paradise.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2009 35,5cl bottle. Thanks a lot to The_Epeeist. Pours cloudy golden with a fine lasting white head. Aroma & taste is first of all very hoppy - pine, citrus, mango & floral. Very bitter & dry - and very fresh & crisp. A malty background with buiscuit notes. Super hoppy lasting dry end! Brilliant and my first Stone brew by the way! Re-rating Dec. 09. 4,1 again. fresh, citrussy and harmonic with a lasting crisp bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: A clear pale gold color with about 1 finger worth of foam that slowly drifts away. Pretty decent lacing.
S: Pine and citrus, hop resin, some floral qualities as well. Some malt sweetness, but very minimal.
T: Very bitter, lots of pine, some floral background. The hops are primarily on the front with a slight amount of malt on the finish.
M: Not much carbonation, medium body, kind of sticky on the tongue (especially as it warms).
D: Bitter and boozy, but a delicious DIPA.

Draught, 7.7%. Sweet hoppy aroma. Cloudy grey yellow colour. The flavour starts off with a distinct teaish note. Becomes a little sweet and then slightly alcohol. Finishes with a distinct but clean bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper; piney, foresty hop aroma. Hops just clobber the palate. Rich malts come in later - an earthy, resiny brew. Very intense, but I have to admit, I’ve never been thrilled with these over-the-top beers and wouldn’t want to drink them as a general rule.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicely balanced aroma of hop and malt. The hop seems citrusy, but hard to be sure. Translucent amber gold color with a white head that tries to lace. Starts with citrus hop and malt. There is so much malt that the 100+IBU is balanced. Not a bad thing, and the finish is bitter, but it’s not over the top hop. Good to drink.
