Great aroma, when you pop the top, it fills the room with hippy goodness. A very well rounded IPA.

Palme (4635) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2017
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Oh, its a sweet nose in this. Sweet like in good-sweet. Its a cloudy honey colored one this, a medium sized slowly islandy just off-white head on the top. Its really tropical and fresh piney in the nose. No doubt that its a double IPA Im nosing. Pineapple, mango, peaches, melon, soft zesty and grapefruit. Really good stuff. Tastes just as good as it smells. Thick and oily, almost a little syrupy on the taste and its about average and prickling on the bubbles. Fruity and kinda sweetish, then a massive hoppy sensation kicks you in the teeth. Sticky and really berry concentrated with pine cones and a little warming alcohol all the way in the finish. Really good. 17.06.2015

Nice golden medium brown appearance, solid lacing... Aroma and tastes of hops, tropical fruit. Smooth for the ABV. Good beer.

Procent (649) - POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Sporo cytrusw i słodkich owocw w aromacie, podobnie w smaku, chociaż z przewagą cytrusw. Goryczka wysoka, ale przyjemna. Dobre piwo.

commonshawn (1186) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Tap at bulldog downtown with commonmac. Light copper with medium white head. Resin hop aroma. Taste is resin hop. Better version of the run of the mill ipa, but nothing super unique.

akoeninger (744) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Golden orange with thick head. Fruity, juicy aroma of orange and citrus fruit. Really hop forward but a good amount of malt keeping things in check. Bitter on the tongue but easy drinking. Hides alcohol well. Really good

Tap at Sedona. Golden. Taste is slightly sweet orange candy. Fruity as hell, too candylike.

Bottle. The pour is a golden orange. The aroma is full of fruity hops. The taste is big and bold. Not overly bitter, but full of hops. Nice drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonmac (1187) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2016
On tap at Stanleys in NE Mpls. 12oz pour in snifter glass. Full finger white head. Golden and orange hues blend together to give that color you expect from a double IPA. Nose leans hard on traditional hop characteristics with some good pine resin and citrus aspects. Taste has a healthy dose of citrus coming through as grapefruit and a lingering bitterness. You can tell they went for a full on hop forward double IPA echoing what Stone has always prided themselves. Its a heavy hop hitter and definitely impacts the palette. Very good for this type of style. Almost reaches the apex but falls ever so slightly short.

mmargarucci (341) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Aroma is slightly dulled hops, with citrus grapefruit and earthy notes. Taste is hop forward followed by a happier finish. Nice solid IPA.

DocJitsu (1943) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a caramel golden with a short white head. Sweet orange, circus peanut, and sweet grain nose. Flavors closely approximate the nose.
