Enjoy By 08-16-14. Big thanks to BenH allowing me to pick up his spare. Shared on a park bench in the Meadows. Classy jakey action. Pours pale gold, thick white head. Big resin nose, something floral too. Taste is bitter, but well balanced. Was expecting a kick in the face from Stone, but this was remarkably drinkable. Medium body, texture is creamy edging towards thin. Bitter finish. Good. Defreni (3325) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Fad: Taster på Stone. 08-16-14. Let kattepis ellers citrus. Smagen er frisk med en pungent tropisk note kørende for sig. Lækker IIPA hvis man tager kattepissen for hvad den er.God bitterhed. Beese (3305) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 23 July. 08-16-14 variant. Poured a clear, bright, deep amber colour, with a dense white head and good lacing. Huge aroma of fresh hops, perfume, citrus, resin, dried fruit and spruce. Pine needles in the flavour, with some mango sweetness and grain. Rich complex hops in the finish, with some resin, marmalade, candy sugar and chewy grain. Excellent! Suttree (6541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Orange, nice white head. Smells stoney, hint of smoke, and lots of citrus. Hops dominate the taste, as you might expect. Some toasty notes, but mostly citrusy hops. Evchenko (5) - Bristol, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014 does not count
From Brewdog Bristol. Wouldn’t usually spend this kind of money on one bottle but it was every bit worth it. Lovely aroma, citrus and bitter quality to the hops, gorgeous body and a lovely warming alcohol glow. Surprisingly drinkable for a 9.4% offering. Well worth the spondoolies, best IPA I’ve had.

Pours a clear orange. Aroma is floral, piney, and grapefruit. Taste is sweet grapefruits upfront and a bitter piney finish. Garrold (5839) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, Sheffield. Fairly big hype round this, which is annoying. Just put it in the fridge, tell folks it’s in there, and they’ll buy it. No need for the, "Oooh, hurry up, the fridges are nearly empty" shite. Anyway, it’s dank and fusty and piny and orangey. Chewy and boozy, too. As Mr. Flav said, "Don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t dont dont believe the hype. Ooeeeurrgghhhaa". Spence_Man (16) - - JUL 25, 2014
By far one of the most incredible IPAs I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. Great aroma and a fantastic taste that washes over your entire mouth and leaves you wanting more. Definitely fresh and definitely hoppy BUT not unpleasant or overly bitter on the finish. The_Osprey (9698) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, enjoy by 08.16.14. Amber orange, slight haze, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma - lemon and peach, light caramelly malt character. Body - medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste - grassy, corn, grapefruit concentrate, tangy alcohol, fairly bitter finish. Another ’Emperor’s New Clothes’ beer from the USA. If this was made in the UK it would get a far lower rating. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle 08-16-14, Brewdog, Glasgow. Excellent aroma of pine, citrus, tropical fruit. Superbly well balanced, hoppy, pine, grapefruit, with nice malt backbone. Some warming from the alcohol, but very easy to drink. Basically an excellent California IPA.
