3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank in a 12oz bottle. Not bad IPA. Don't think it is as good as the rating. Finish is a little strong. I like a lot more imperials better.

A very strong beer.
Bitter, hoppy.. crisp.. um.. toasty.. roasty.. ghosty.
A good strong beer, not for the faint of heart. The 100 IBU’s 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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber/gold with a good off-white head. Aroma is hops. Medium body, foamy mouthfeel. Briefy and faintly malty, then strongly hoppy with a very bitter finish and lingering bitter aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz. bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a nice white head; leaves moderate lacing. Hoppy aroma, but there’s a bit of bready malt in the background. Flavor delivers as promised, hops! Still there’s a good balance in spite of the high IBU. A very strong offering from Stone.
