Pours a brownish orange. I know that doesn't sound great but it's actually a pretty good looking beer. Nice looking head, too, which stick to the side of the glass. Strong aroma of malts and hops. Maybe a bit of grapefruit as well. Flavor has more malt and earth than I was expecting. That goes along with a pretty good hop kick on the front end and some sweetness on the back end. This beer has a fair amount going on in the flavor category. Interesting beer and not bad for a random special edition. Strykzone (7715) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2017
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Deep copper hue with a three fingers of beige foam. Moderate lacing. I smell the Citra with the citrus and tropical fruit. Nice. Flavor is the Citra. Citrus and tropical deliciousness. Ron tells me there is pine. Sure wish I could more easily taste pine. Rich malts have some caramel and cereal. Plenty of sweetness. Being a 9% beer, this hides the alcohol quite well. I like this a lot but find it to be a dangerous concoction at 9%. hayduke (5703) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 23, 2017
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a rich copper color with an off-white head. . Nose of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Full body. Flavor is much like the aroma and there is a lot of it. Finishes dry an with tropical and bitterness. Excellent. bergstaden (3260) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2017
Light amber with off white head - Good hop aroma from citrus, fruits and hints of pine - Good malt body to support hop that is fruity, citrus and herbal piney with a good bitterness - The hops goes into the finish that has some dry notes - This was real good jjgmd (2269) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2017
At Brass Tap, Coral Springs with Audrie, pours a dark copper orange pour with a beige head. Nose is fresh peaches and deep tropical fruit...Taste is bold sweet citrus with a confluence of ’ cinnamon and floral ’ notes. Ends on deep sweet citrus and spicy notes...delicious but rather easier to taste than describe. Nevertheless excellent ! Quaff Score 8 /10

22 ounce bottle into a Creature Comforts glass. Bottled August 2016. Freaky_tiki (1365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2017
Pours with a hazy, copper/orange body. The head is moderate in size with good retention and ample soapy lacing.
Aroma: dank and fruity, with hints of orange, grapefruit, melon, pine, yeast and bisquits.
Flavor: pungent and complex; moderately bitter for style. Largely follows the aroma with suggestions of orange, tangerine and grapefruit. Little pine. Well hidden alcohol.
Feel: full, smooth body; medium carbonation; dry finish.
Overall: a well crafted DIPA from Stone. Strongly flavored but reasonably well balanced,
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a thick & hazy amber with a thin skin of bubbly foam across the surface. Aromas of sweet malt & canned fruit. Comes across as a boozed-up amber ale with hop injections. A bit of pine & woody bitterness. Honey is strong & floral. A low-key fruit salad: canned pineapple, some guava, papaya enhanced with a squeeze of lemon Not quite the Citra celebration I was hoping for -- Great Lakes KarmaCitra is still the podium holder in my books -- but still an enjoyable hop feast. kevinator (2796) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Really great and a good representation of this brewery’s legacy. Bold aromas and matching flavors of floral and citrus hops with a very balanced malt base. I hope it returns some day. Listigovers (1343) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2017
Brown amber pour, head that laces the glass. Very aromatic, lots of oily pine, taste is really bitter! Dry, tons of aroma, heaps of it coming off even after you drink. Good malt balance to the bitterness, 20 years of nice ipas.
