4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Singular, bold, orgy of hoppy goodness. Effervescent hops define this beer from aroma and flavor to its long lasting impression.

Be prepared for an in-your-face hoppy, hoppy IPA. This is a beer to be savored. With a hazy appearance and strong nose, this brew will not go quietly into the night....

Bottle. Yellow/Amber colour, with medium frothy white head. Very feint hop aroma seeing as its all about the hops. Harsh hop aroma including lime, orange and perfume. This is a really good beer, but to be taken 1 bottle at a time!

22oz bottle, poured into a shaker (I didnít have a snifter at the time). Great amber/golden color with huge 3 finger white head with unreal lacing. Taste is glorious piney hoppy perfection. In my top 5 for a hopheadís dream beer,

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a lingering fluffy white head. Aroma is strong and pungent. Very citrusy, very floral and almost brings a stinging sensation itís so intense. Taste is almost brutal but very good. Intensely bitter; citrusy, grassy, one of the hoppiest beers Iíve had, fantastic. Slightly thich and sticky in your mouth with average carbonation. This is one of the best IPAís Iíve had and one of the most intense beers in general. Must have.

I guess I'm what they call a hophead and generally can't get enough of them. I felt a little overpowered by this one. True what the boys at Stone say - a sip of this will ruin your palate for the next thing.

I was expecting the hops... after reading reviews and the label... but I was surprised to taste the strong citrus and pine flavors that come out. Bitter aftertaste - great stuff - will have again!!!

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 I wasnít sure what to expect going into this, but I was quite satisfied coming out. Ruination is not nearly as ruinous on the palate as it claims to be; a better description would be marvelous on the palate. Carbonation was average and mouth feel was mid way between watery and oily. Scent was hops and citrus. The flavor was strong bitter grapefruit, orange, hops, pine resin, lime and wax. The after taste was of very bitter grapefruit. The after- taste seems to creep into your nostrils and is great. Every time I buy this I end up liking it more. My only qualm is with the price; 15.99 a six-pack. wtf guys.............................. Highly recommended.

Wonderful hoppy IPA. Stone knows that people will either love it or hate it, not many will be on the fence. I love it. Great aroma and flavor.
