Bottle. Golden with one finger head. Medium body with a fair amount of booze. Big citrus and tropical notes. Plenty of resin, moderate bitterness. Solid, but the alcohol is overdone. floydian1 (1490) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 30, 2016
946ml CANamel from Hops to Home (fill date 4/12/16). Copper-amber body with a large loose off-white head that laces nicely. Plenty of pine resin and tropical fruity hops on the nose with toasty biscuity malts and a bit of booze. Taste follows the nose with a substantial resinous dry hop finish and subtle alcoholic burn. Medium-full oily palate. An excellent beer but faintly disappoints hop-wise when compared to other outstanding Stone DIPAs (perhaps a reflection of its shipping from USA). alkolord (616) - - DEC 26, 2016
Golden kupfer klar im Glas, ein wenig weißer Schaum, süßlich würzig in der Nase, spritzig im antrunk, runder Körper, leicht würzig "scharf", schöne bittere wlajwl (7065) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Aroma is floral, citrus/fruit and creeping dank hops. The flavor is citrus, fruit, grapefruit, malts, hops/mild hop resin and a mix of bitter and warming alcohol in the finish. jandd1983 (4604) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. It poured a dark orange color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel, malts and fruity hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, malts, fruits and hops. A little different than I expected, but still really good.

From this get go, this is a kinder, gentler Stone machine gun hand. The nose is unusually understated for a Stone Imperial - light citrus, tropical fruit and bready malt. The taste is a more subtle mix of hops and certainly less astringent than some more recent gems - tropical fruit, melon, light citrus elements - a much happier face on the potential of hops than usual. The malt is biscuit and caramel, but not as dark and roasted as the Ruination or Ruin Ten. Smooth blending and very tasty. davidezdonz (589) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - NOV 28, 2016
A 22 oz bomber, bottled on 25th August 2016, to be enjoyed by 23rd November 2016 (drank on the 27th, so I’m four days late). Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a clear copper amber colour with a big three finger slightly off white colour with great retention and nice lacing. Aromas of tropical pineapple with touches of mango followed by citrusy grapefruit and mandarin, pine and a hint of caramel. Tastes of caramel biscuit malt with a blast of tropical stone fruits, bitter citrusy mandarin and its zest with notes of pine and citrus pith. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and boozy on the finish. Overall this was nice, with my only minor complaint being that I’m not too fond of a boozy feel on IPAs or Double IPAs in this case. Other than that, I found it enjoyable. scotchzombie (612) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Jammy hoppy bitter not boozy. Super well-balanced. Tropical fruit tangerine and pine. Fantastic IIPA.

An attractive dark orange with a white head. Not overboard on the bitterness. Big on the hops. Duh. It’s pretty fine.
