Wow. Ruination is exactly right. Hints of citrus and pine but its hard to taste much past the hoppiness. Dry and fizzy accross the palate. Overall not my favorite Double IPA but still good.

This seems fairly low abv for an IIPA but oh well. Thick, pungent, assertive hop flavor, aroma and bitterness. Moderately light body with a very dry finish. Bitter enough for me to not seek this beer out, again.

Solid hoppy beer
Low aroma but good taste upfront. Finish is slightly bitter. Hop lovers will enjoy

The smell is horrid - like skunk. It is a harsher tasting IPA, but not necessarily in a bad way. Stronger IPA than I have had in a while. The bitterness lingers. I think it should rate higher, but that smell is just unpleasant.

Lightly hazy orange, sweet hop aroma. Finish is way to dry, bitter and unbalanced for me. Not my favorite style of ipa at all.

Very potent beer, so don’t drink more than two; not a session beer! Flavor is fantastic

Poured clear golden with an off white ring. Aroma of big citrus and floral hops. Medium body, some sweetness, flavour of grass and pine, very bitter.

Really disappointed with this beer, after loving the Arrogant and Double Arrogant. I love hops, but that was all I tasted in this beer. I don’t get why people in bars keep recommending this to me...do they work for Stone?

This beer is hops. The smell, taste and all. Little too hoppy for me. Nice golden color and thick head.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2006 22oz: pours copper with a tall head, nice lacing on the glass. A light floral aroma with cirtus grapefruit and lemon. Medium mouthfeel with a flavor that is very malty, carmelly, grapefruit, and overly grassy. The grassy hops stick on my palate and like this glass, i just want them to go away.
