Wonderful nose with a lovely fresh west coast hop funk and a nice understated toastiness. Caramel, white bread, and multiple layers of hops. A little hot for its alcohol percentage. Finishrles resiny and dry. A nicely balanced dipa.
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Oh, it’s a sweet nose in this. Sweet like in good-sweet. It’s a cloudy honey colored one this, a medium sized slowly islandy just off-white head on the top. It’s really tropical and fresh piney in the nose. No doubt that it’s a double IPA I’m 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 it’s 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 Bricks (1119) - Delaware, USA - FEB 25, 2017
Nice golden medium brown appearance, solid lacing... Aroma and tastes of hops, tropical fruit. Smooth for the ABV. Good beer. Procent (657) - POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Sporo cytrusów i słodkich owoców w aromacie, podobnie w smaku, chociaż z przewagą cytrusów. Goryczka wysoka, ale przyjemna. Dobre piwo. commonshawn (1203) - 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 (748) - 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. ICEatALAMO (1349) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2016
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.

On tap at Stanley’s 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. It’s 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 (343) - 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 (1972) - 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.
