22 ouncer. Darker color with a thin white head. Was a lot smoother than I expected it to be after reading some reviews. A good balance between bitter and malt.

in a bottle. very very hoppy. will leave your mouth burning from the hops. not too much flavor other than the overwhelming hops. don’t know if i could drink more than one of these.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: resin, floral.
Appearance: golden, orange, cloudy, frothy, white foam.
Taste: light sweetness, very bitter.
Palate: medium body, creamy, average carbonation, astringent, bitter, long finish.
Overall: This is one of the most over-the-top beers made. It is a very bitter beer, which is also nearly 8% alcohol by volume. The malt character is significant, but overpowered by the hop bitterness. You really have to love bitterness a lot to enjoy this beer. The bitterness is a bit much for my preferences, but this is definitely one of the better IPAs out there.

Pours a clear sparkling orange with an average frothy off-white head. Good lacing. The aroma of fresh hops and citrus is milder than I thought it would be but it smells great. The flavour is very hoppy but incredibly well balanced with some sweetness and citrus.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 Pours a nice amber color... smells of sulfur and hops... the flavor is malty hops and orange rinds... very tastey... lingering after taste a lil dry... this is going to be a favorite!

A good one from Stone. Obviously hoppy but not overly bitter by any means. Taste of floral and pine. Pours an orange color with little lacing. Stone never puts out anything mediocre and that certainly echos with this brew. One of the better IPAs out there for sure; if you can find it!

This is a fantastic beer! Very hoppy up front, very nice finish. One of the best IPA's I've had.

the only thing that throws me off of this beer is the alcohol. it is only 8% but it is very apparent and unbalaced other than that this IPA (double) is killer. great citrus and floral hops with a malty back bone that is not overly assertive.

Purchased this at $10 a six pack as a misorder by a store. I was intrigued from the pour as it was a bright transparent liquid gold. As usual I drank the first one at room tempature which added to the appeal of the pour. At entranced IPA has a smooth flat feel but a little swoosh releases the hoppy bitter bite. Flavor like taste is piney and stongly reminicent of grapefruit. Although hoppy IPA maintains it a smooth taste and feel for a 7.7% beverage. All in all it is bold, hoppy and bitter. Did I say bitter? A good IPA; especially at 7.7% but not as complex in flavor as I had hoped for. I never thought I would say it but I miss the malty sweet touch. Nevertheless a great beer.

Bottle into Sniffer. Pours Golden with a nice white head. Smells of floral hops are most prominent with some yeast. All hops taste. Goes down super smooth, leaving a bitter after taste. Very nice beer, but not as good as a 90 min.
