Nice clear golden pour. Pine, citrus and grass for aroma. Heavy pine flavor with a tinge of soap. Nice heavy mouthfeel with a sharp bitter finish. mcmd (315) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Pours clear golden orange with a decent frothy head. Aroma is butter, caramel, piney noble hops. Flavor has an initial buttery pineapple sweetness followed and balance nicely by bitter piney hops. Noble is showcased wonderfully in this one. Very drinkable, don’t notice the alcohol at all. Very nice. Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Pours golden amber with a thick white foam. Hoppy aroma with a little citrus. Good hops and malt balance with a moderately bitter finish. Very good double IPA. Doesn’t strike me as unique though. quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bomber. Clear yellow pour that then clouded, plenty of carbonation and nice lingering head. Floral-piney aroma with a hint of grapefruit. Light malt is quickly overwhelmed by piney bitterness with a long floral finish. Good, but the piney bitterness tends to overpower the other flavors. popkow (308) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Golden ale with white head. A nice hop balance ties the high alcohol content with a underlying pilsner makes.

Just couldn't really get into this. Piney an herbal with crisp German hops. That quality comes through and is appreciated. Middle of the taste is pure bitterness and stands out against the rest of the beer. Finish is slightly hot with a toned down bitterness. Good an well made, but what is there here besides the bitterness?

22 oz bottle - pours hazy orange gold with nice full white head, lasting. Darker citrus noted coupled with spicy yeast and decent malts in the aroma. Tastes of oranges, bitter fruit, floral biting hops at the end, and spicy notes at the finish. Medium-full bodied with lots of hops, spice and malty characteristics. Really good.

Pours golden orange with a thin white head and a light grassy aroma. Strong bitter body with a smooth mouthfeel and a slight alcohol burn at the finish. Slightly different ipa but very good.

Bottle @ home. Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is resiny, bready, citrusy. Flavor is pine, resin, citrus, bread. Not bad. Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Nice consistency, but pale color belies the body. Mild smell for Stone with different hop smell. Great mouthfeel with lasting palate, but flavor doesn’t suit me. better than most, but no comparison to other Stone brews.
