Pours gold. Head is frothy white. Nose is complex sweet citrus, sticky sweet malts, floral and citrus. Flavor is muted floral and light citrus, intense bitterness like you would suspect with stone. pretty good but very different. DCLawyer (2914) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bomber->SA. Light orange/gold with huge frothy white head. A: strong bright hops - citrus and pine; sweet malt. T: bitter pine hops, resin. Very bitter and xerostomic. Expected better. wxman (1848) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a minimal but retentive head. Aroma is a pine forest. Taste is grapefruit, white grapes, just a little sweet pale malt and HOPS!! Really nice, but the hop bitterness dominates (yeah, I know it’s Stone). Interesting, but totally radical hops. Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from The Common Market. Pours a clear orange color with a white head. Aroma of resinous hops and a slight bit of grape. Taste is subtly bitter but even across the palate.

Bottle. Clear bright amber gold, with a white head. Lots of Stone’s standard bitter hops, citrus, grapefruit, crackery malt, peppery, some fruity sweetness, earthy, and a bit buttery. A strange DIPA, certainly tastes similar to imperial pilsner. Ok thegreenrooster (4562) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pour is a clear blonde with a large white head. Aroma is a spicy hop with a lot of pine. Flavor is a nice hop with some sweetness followed by a big bitterness. I don’t really get any pils malt or noble hops, it’s just a pretty much in your face sweet hop bomb. Drinks more like a 5% IPA then the 9.5% so this could be a black out beer. jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle at Brewdown. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose and taste of yeast, citrus bread, pine and toasted malt. Medium body. Panzuriel (2380) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Gotterdammerung pouts a hazy apricot amber with a firm head of small off white bubbles. Nose is resin, rasins and maybe a hint of grapefruit citrus. Taste is intially dry with the hops being less strong than the nose would indicate. Subsequent sips indicate that the Hops are mild for a stone product but just as tasty as one would expect. A very smooth body. and a nice finish. a nice IPA. portableparty (2384) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours clear orange gold color with a thin soapy white head that fades to a soapy wispy film and collar. Aroma has soft floral herbal scents which are slightly minty and earthy flower. Taste has a crazy bitter hop flavor that turns right into a minty earthy flower and herbal characteristics, there is some spice/pepper which is probably from the mint. Palate is medium and drying with a warming finish. This is a complex beer with some not so common flavors.
