Poured into a pint glass out of a 22 oz. bottle. Poured cloudy orange-gold with a moderate off-white head. The scent of hops was immediately noticeable after opening. 100+ IBU rating was a bit deceiving, as this brew seemed to be much less bitter, very balanced. Moderately high ABV% was also deceiving, as the complex flavors of the brew also balanced out the alcohol. Overall a great brew, easily one of the top 10 IPA/IIPAs I’ve tasted.

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!

The beer pours a clear, deep orange-gold with a frothy head that leaves a network of lace in its wake. As beautiful a beer as I have ever seen. The aroma is predominantly citrus with floral overtones. The taste, as one would expect, is very bitter with a long bitter finish. The beer opens up in the mouth with a lively carbonation.

Best ipa you will ever have it is my #1 favorite ipa it will destroy you with hops but in a good way its balanced enough where its drinkable this is pure gold with a bright white head and has notes of forest pine, grapefruit, lemon, Mandarin orange and caramel with a slight sweet finish definitely for a hop head thumbs up all the way for ruination

Pours a lovely golden amber with finger width head. Aroma is an amazing mix of pine, resin caramel and bubble gum. Palate is silky smooth. Big bitter hit upfront which mellows in the background and is overtaken by caramel and toffee sweetness. Amazing IIPA.

Nice #hoppy #aroma with about an inch head. Bitter hoppy taste in your mouth. Going down it gets more bitter and it ends with a strong hop taste. Great #beer.
