Bottle: 2014: clear, deep golden hue, with medium head and great lace. Massive lift. Fresh hops and almost smells like wet hopping. Floral, tropical, ripe and not reductive or rubbery. Loads of malt but hard to see under the hops. Off dry, not sour, and high bitterness. Lads of flavor, balanced, rich, long and even.
Just a massive beer with Huge flavor. Classic west Coast double IPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Copper color, clear. Light, creamy head. Citrus, orange hoppy aroma. Very hoppy - citrus, malt in the background. High bitterness that lingers but in a good way. Drink this one slow - it's a heavy hitter.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Awesome brew. I actually chose this over brewdog’s equivalent. Very hoppy and kinda earthy on the nose. Awesome appearance, decent head retention and lacing. Great taste, hops throughout but intensifies on the finish. Very smooth for the amount of hops. One of my favorites now. Will be a go to from now on

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coppery orange with small white head. Aroma pine, grapefruit, minimal malt. Medium full body. Just a little alcohol. Flavor fairly extreme hops of pine and citrus variety, a little syrupy sweetness in the background. There’s certainly better balanced DIPAs but you could do worse if looking for a big hop experience.

Bottle. Clear red copper. Floral grapefruit aroma. The taste adds a lot of peach and mango plus hop resin. A huge ipa with a lot of bitterness yet, a clean dry finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep golden yellow with plenty of carbonation and a decent head. Smells quite sweet with plenty of citrus notes and caramel. Tastes is sweet orange and citrus cut by a huge resinous, almost woody, pine presence. Dry and bitter hoppy finish. A very good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark orange pour, fluffy white head. Aroma is humongous citrus: orange, grapefruit, lemon. Also lots of garlic and onion, typical of Stone IPAs. Sticky mouthfeel, super dry finish. Good one.
