2015 BJCP Category: 22A Double IPA
AROMA: Prominent hop aroma of American/New World varietals. Citrus, stone fruit, white grape all seem to be aromatics. Clean, bright nose overall. Malt base is nondescript. No alcohol presence. 10/12
APPEARANCE: Flame orange hue; very hazy. Moderate off-white foam. 3/3
FLAVOR: Orange citrus throughout with a sherbet or sweet orange peel taste on the first half. Strong bitterness throughout, but becomes a dry bitterness at the peak, followed by more fruity flavors (tropical, white grape) on the finish. Alcohol taste and warmth is a significant part of the palette, but not hot. Slight astringency between the hops and alcohol. Malt base creates for enough sweetness for balance, but has no significant character. 15/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-full body; medium carbonation. Smooth texture; no challenge to drink at 9.4% ABV. Slight alcohol warmth is tolerable. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Yet another very good DIPA from Stone, but it’s been done. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 40/50

on draught. Pours a clear orange amber, with a moderate white head that persists and leaves good lacing. Nose is citrus and hops. Taste is similar, with enough malt backbone to balance the hoppy finish. Nice. Bricktop86 (863) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 24, 2017

Typical lcbo.... The name of the beer is enjoy by July 4, 2016, and it’s new on the shelves June of 2017. Good job! What a joke. Pours a Cloudy orange pour, with a Gigantic white head. Aroma is tart, fruity, tropical fruit, hints of mango, and stone fruit with some candied citrus peel. Soft mouth feel, light carb. Finish is lightly bitter, and lightly tart with a soft tropical fruit to round it out.. Not. Bad, would love to have tried it fresh. mrol (340) - - JUN 17, 2017

Aroma is tangerine, apricot, mango. Whoo, aroma burns my eyes. Hop resin.
Taste is kinda bitter. Some malt. Plenty of tropical fruit. Citrus, and pine. Hop resin. No alcohol taste.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. No alcohol. Smooth, but resinous.
Overall, it’s very good. Not as dank as what I expected. I would buy it again, and I would recommend it.
