Look: Brass orange body, 1/2 finger white head. Smell: Tropical Flowers fused with fruits (like a woman’s perfume), citrus, tobacco and faint alcohol. Taste: Floral, citric rind, spicy, fruits, tobacco, strong bitterness, mild alcohol bite. Feel: Medium body, active carbonation. Overall: 17th reminds me of a certain other beer named Victory Hop Wallop. Nothing wrong with that though the malt sweetness is a bit brighter with Stone. All the flavors and aroma are the practically the same. I sipped this and Hop Wallop came to mind. The only thing that sets them apart is the bitterness and pilsner malt sweetness. Other than that this brew is worthy. Nothing earthshattering but still very solid. GMCC2181 (1610) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Draft at Two Stones.... Nice looking DIPA, bright orange in color, good head. Nose is hoppy... little grassy. Classic Stone taste, big but not over the top. Hoppy, grassy, bitter, little sweet in the after taste. Medium body. Overall Good stuff hope I can find a bottle bytemesis (8438) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is a mix of citrus, pine, spicy herbs, caramel, perhaps a touch of butter. Flavor is the same, medium spicy as if rye were present, light sweet, light plus bitter, with bitterness lingering to the far finish. Medium body, silky smooth mouthfeel. My overall impression is that it is a nice beer, but a bit harsh, and lacking the hop juiciness of my favorite IPA’s wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2013
This is a good one! Pours a nice golden with a fluffy head. Complex but not overpowering aroma of hops. The flavor is hoppy and sweet. It has a tingly feeling on the tongue. Nice! Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear, light amber color with a large off white head of foam. The nose is hop forward (no surprise as it is from Stone). Citrus and resin notes. The hops hit your tongue right out the gate. Big citrus notes, a little pine resin finishing with an almost aspirin like bitterness. Light to medium body with a very long finish.

Bottle to tulip. Pours clear orange with a medium white foamy head. Nose is hops, citrus, spice. Flavor is citrus, hops, malt, spice. Medium mouthfeel and a pretty bitter finish, fitting for a Stone beer. I liked this as much or better than the Enjoy By beers.

Flavor is earthy hops, pine, resin, slight floral notes. Enjoyed 22 ounce bomber and decided not to share it with anyone. ;-) resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours clear copper with frothy white head. Aroma is
bread, caramel, but mostly floral and citrus hops. Taste is very bitter. Texture is oily. Great IPA by stone. jefcon (1858) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Hop-head’s dream. Sticky icky pine, resin, grapefruit, sour mash. So long, so bitter. Kind of a Symphony No.9 of hops. And in some cases those hops are so woody and dark as to substitute out for the pils malt entirely. A big risk in a beer that really pays. Dogbrick (13026) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2013
This beer pours a clear pale orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and minty spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and spice. The finish is moderately bitter with a zesty citrus and spicy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
