Collins Pub in Seattle, from memory. Golden pour, moderate but lasting head, excellent fresh hoip aroma. Taste is intense hop forward, very resiny, with moderate complexity. Works pretty well as the bitterness is more interesting than palate abusing. Finishes bitter and resiny, but again not overdone. Maybe my palate is changing. Very enjoyable although not terribly unique. notalush (5909) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Tap - hazy gold - a very clean and straightforward IIPA, which is good, considering some of my experiences with hoppy Stone products as of late - a clean malt base allows the hops to be showcased well - a lot of citrus, pine, resin, grass - no astringency - a little alcohol heat in the finish, but otherwise simple and tasty. jamiepiolin (7) - Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2013 does not count
Huge pine with a hint of citrus on the nose. The taste is similar to the nose with just enough malt backbone to handle the intense hoppiness. This is a truly excellent bright, young, and resinous DIPA jsquire (4559) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Deep golden color from the tap. Short lived foamy white head. Big, fresh sweet orange candy nose. Big chewy mouth feel. Lots of tangerine, orange and sweetened grapefruit hop flavors with some tropical fruit notes. Long clinging hop bitterness the finish. Notable alcohol. Very much a fresh, sticky hop head beer.

4.20.13 drank on 3/27/13 Pours a pale gold with a short-lived small white head with little to no lacing. Scent is a hops avalanche of pine and apricot-citrus with floral hints. Crisp hops flavor with a light, sticky body and good carbonation. A great hoppy double-IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Re-rate. 2.14.15. Bomber. Clear gold with a foamy, off-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas grapefruit, mango, peach, pine and light spice. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied, crisp with a dry end. Easy to drink. thegreenrooster (4512) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2013
4/20. Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is pungent hops and not much else but your not really looking for anything else with this beer. Flavor is again a all hop blast. There are some malts in the backround to tighten things up. Tasty hop bomb of a beer. Here’s a beer gimmick that works. Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 8.02.13 version (drank on 7.22.13).
Absolutely incredible aroma! Completely different animal than the 4.20. Very floral aroma with super balanced but sharp citrus flavor. Sweet and wet finish. Amazing wet hopped beer!
4.20.13 version (drank on 3.26.13). Light golden with thin white head. Aroma is very piney - not a lot of citrus hop. Taste is very straight and bitter...not much sweetness to balance. Almost has a sort of dry, burnt hop taste to it...or a charcoaley bite. Finishes a bit dry. Edit -- on tap this beer really opens up. Much more balanced - the pine flavor really smooths out and becomes more drinkable. ajacobson2000 (1) - - MAR 26, 2013 does not count
One of the best beers I’ve ever tried. Sweet, piney, citrusy godness. Very impressive. Damn. HoppyAlesToYou (167) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Some caramel, but mostly hop related aromas. Some floral and spruce, but mostly herbs and resin. Looks pretty, is soft on the palate, and is every bit as bitter as the aroma teases. Really good DIPA, it reminded me of Heady Topper. Thought the good Lord had dropped a bag on me. Is this liquid gargoyle ganj?
