4-20-15 batch. Pours a light somewhat cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma is of pine with notes of citrus. The flavor is of syrup up front with a bitter hop bite at the end. The body is medium and goes down real smooth. Overall a good beer. VertBaconStrips (2390) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - APR 1, 2015
El Batcho 04-20-15. Reviewing from deep in the Ottoman Empire. Spectacular beer! Herbal, earthy, wet, resin, thick, bit of pepper bite, rrgf, caramel, peaches, pungent anything, tropical things, solid lemon taste, unicorn tears, honey, every damn sip is just simply awesome. I am officially drinking only this at home. Gonna be very hard to by other I/IIPA’s available here to review or whatever because it’s absolutely fucking pointless. Seriously - who the fuck keeps buying subpar beers when excellence awaits? To get that next Picaroons IPA review? (totally gonna do that btw because i have a permanent ipa hard on.... sigh). Lyric of the night: "gangbang at the old folks home : one foot in the grave : two lips on my bone". Beat that. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015

Another 10/10 Stone gem, lots of aroma, nice and slick (but not too thin), perfect for the summer OR winter (extra abv 9.5%!). haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - APR 1, 2015
4.20.15 edition. Pours a clear, dark golden color with a nice, thick white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with strong citrus and grassy notes. Smooth, hoppy taste. Crisp. Easy drinking for a 9.4% brew. Light, grapefruit notes. Really good Double IPA.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 4/20/15 edition. Color is a rich golden-yellow-orange with a medium-sized dense head. Smell is dense, dank, intensely fruity, syrupy sweet. Dense citrus and pine flavor, lots of bitterness, layers on layers of flavor. Another home run from Stone. IPagan5 (106) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Had many different dates...all superb with big grassy hops nice clean crisp flavor with the hops dominating. The freshness factor puts this in the fiver category!!! asceticbrewer (69) - Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Enjoy by 4.20.15. 12oz into tulip. Pours a golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is resinous, slightly herbal hop notes. Taste is crisp and bitter. Not as good as some of the other batches, but at the same time better than others. nathan30533 (1020) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Great IPA. Very fresh floral aroma and great balance with the combo of hops. This brew is clear and crisp for an IPA. Very, very enjoyable. nothingbutIPAs (59) - Hillsborough, USA - MAR 26, 2015
12oz bottle. 04/20/2015 date. this series is about as good as it gets. normally have had this on draft or in the 22oz bottles. outside of the yellowish appearance there is really no critique I can make of this. smell is not a strong hop smell which I prefer, but the taste is full of hops. definitely one of the top beers in the world IMO.
