Bottle shared @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day via trade with pineypower. Pours a hazy orange appearance with no head. Very malty, caramel, oxidized, cardboard, herbal aroma. Flavor is again quite malty- the hops are completely gone at this point- and has some notes of citrus and toffee. This one is long gone but it was still interesting to try.

Bottle from Systembolaget, Swoppy aroma but not resh more pungent. Strong alcoholic taste with balanced bitterness and much malty sweetness. A bitterness that lasts a long time and a huge body. A big beer but not as resh as I want my IPA’s or imp IPA’s. edwardbass (861) - Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Stone must be re-making this one. Had a couple of bombers recently. Interesting double IPA. Has a unique maltiness that I can’t quite place. Good beer. PhillyCraft (7935) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle a good 3-4 years back. Poured hazy orange with big head. Aromas and flavor were citrus, penny, malt, and stale pineapple. I think this was sitting on my local liquor store shelf for a good year or more. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Believe the bottle is well past it's prime. Has some funky sweet pineapple scents. Taste is some sweet citrus, some pine, pretty easy drinking with some musty notes.

For a 6 year old bottle of double IPA, not too bad at all! Aroma has fallen off for sure to some dead malts, no more hops. The flavor has stayed quite nice though, hops have fallen off but there are sweet smooth malts on the palate. jimrahm (8) - California, USA - NOV 14, 2012 does not count
Dry hopped, malty, thick copper color, nice foam head and a bit of fruit, looks like another great seasonal from Stone. Enjoy kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Pours to good head/lacing; copper-orange color. Big citrus/pine aroma. Taste - WWOOWW!! Strong hops blend together perfectly with some sweet and spicy malts leaving a taste that lingers and lingers. Some mouth and nose burning alcohol presence adds to its strength. Even with all the bold flavor, it still somehow seems amazingly smooth, as some reviewers have noted. Another remarkable effort by Stone. nyindiansfan (465) - rochester, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle drank on 12/12/11. Pours a dark amber almost a ruby red. Think white head a bit of carb bubbles coming up to the top. Taste and smell caramel, roasty, resin, alcohol, banana, butterscotch, vanilla..Clear. On the higher end of sweet not to much bitter at all, maybe a bit salty. Really nice was surprised the way it tastes. Very heavy on the caramel taste and sweet with a bit of banana. Taste like a barley wine but a lighter one. Id have to say its come a long way from what it started out as but I really enjoy this one. beer4bears (75) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Dark amber with a well held tan head. Resin on the nose and good balance in the aroma. Malt could improve the balance. Some toasty bitterness on the finish. Overall really good.
