3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hop, hop and more hop.
I have never had a beer this hoppy which was still drinkable before.
One of the best IPAs I have come across.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
After uncapping the 22 once bottle my nostrils were assaulted by hoppy citrus aromas that made me jump back from the bottle as it was possessed. Once I had gained my compsure from the onslaught, I poured the devil’s brew into a snifter. It poured a liquid gold that shimmered in the sunlight liike a necklace my girlfrined’s grandmother had bought her for a very hoppy birthday. The aromas eminating from the glass made me shiver with terror of what it was going to do to my palate. Finally after much inner debate I dared to take a sip....and it was a hop explosion in mouth that left my tongue hungry for more. All I can say is the flavor was HOPPY HOPPY HOPPY!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice golden color with a thick head that lasted throughout the pint. Great hoppy flavor and aroma, although the texture was a little thin.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep gold with a 2 finger soapy head. Really great lacing all the way to the end. Nose is BIG hops- floral, piney hops you can smell from a foot away. Taste is HOPS! It starts bitter, goes sweet for a moment, and finishes bitter and then disappears. If you catch yourself craving hops, this is what you need. Awesome brew.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The moment you knock the top off the aroma hits you and its a great aroma which is back up when you taste it. the hops and a slight malt taste make this a great IPA

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an amber color with small off-white head that disappears into nothing quickly. Smells of citrus and grapefruit with a hint of raisins. Taste is similar with cintrus and hops up front and a hint of bitter finish with the grapefruit. Tastes of pine are in the beer as well that sneak up on you.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the best beers I have ever tasted and a true hop-lovers delight. Pours a pleasant golden colour with a distinct pine and citrus aroma. Very apparent grapefruit overtones with perhaps a delicate hint of caramel along the way. Strong bitterness and powerfully hoppy, dry finish. Definitely one of the best in its class.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle in a handled pint glass on 9/3/13. Pours a cloudy copper/orange with a small head that quickly shrinks fast. Massive resinous aroma, I get pine needles, grapefruit and orange peel. Delivers big time, fruit hop flavour is quickly dwarfed by awesome bitterness that lingers on the palate in a surprisingly delicate way. Has balance and poise for what is a ridiculous hop bomb. Loved it.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Highly available anywhere. Not my favorite but a very good IPA. Overall a nice beer, I would never turn it down. This is Stone’s best. If you are new to the IPA market you will enjoy.
