This was Stone enjoy by 4-20 at Triangle Wine tap event in Southern Pines. It has a powerful aroma of grapefruit and other citrus flavors. It has a strong hops taste dominated by the grapefruit with a powerful citrus after taste. A wonderful Stone selection to try. jtw (1163) - farmington, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2014
enjoy by 04.20.2014. lovely hops abound - citrus, pine, weed, lots of character. little to suggest the 9.4% hugeness considering that there is not much sweetness to the aroma, or in the initial impression on the mouth. a little malt appears but it drowns in hops bitterness with a nice acidic bite throughout. very nice beer, and i appreciate the effort to deliver supremely fresh stuff! bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2014
On draft at the ale house in Columbia. A medium amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is so good tons of pine and a sweetness that softens the pine almost perfect. A flavor bomb that is full of piney hops and vanilla sugar. A cold beer that makes your mouth feel warm and happy.

- points for the blatant dank/4:20 reference. A little on the nose for my taste. ravens_n_beer (23) - - MAR 28, 2014
Enjoyed from a growler at Perfect Pour in Maryland. Wow, the aroma is so prevalent you can taste it before it is on your palate. Clear amber orange with a thin tan head. Very clean satisfying taste. Mouth feel is smooth, broad across the tongue and pairs well with a fresh spicy steak salad. This is so satisfying. Well done!!

Enjoy by 04.20.14 bottle. Poured a crystal clear amber-copper color with a large off-white head. Great hoppy aroma with spruce, pine, and herbs. Taste has a surprising malty backbone with plenty of good hops. Loads of herb flavors with lots of spruce. Very crisp and refreshing, the alcohol is well hidden. Instantly one of my favorite IPAs. bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 I first had this offering with the 2-14-14 version, however, it was a leftover more than two weeks past due when I bought it. Still extremely tasty, but when I saw this 4-20-14 bottle I had to pick one up to try fresh. Wow, am I glad I did. Pours is a hazy orange and gold with decent head and left some lacing throughout my glass. Very complex and citrusy smell with grapefruit, pineapple, mango, pine, evergreen, toast, and nuts. Taste is amazing with grapefruit, fresh hops, orange, grass, pine, pineapple, mango. A little alcohol is noticed too. This series is by far a top 5 among beers I have had. I will definitely get future releases. LearninBeer (580) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Enjoy by 04-20-14. The aroma is hops - spruce/evergreen. Pours a clear golden orange, with big off white head, mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. Very good. BigMug13 (2) - Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2014 does not count
This is so good they could call it Man Nut and I would still drink it................. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2014
On draught at Roscoe’s Fifth Annual IPA Summit. Full golden color with bubbles. Pine and tropical fruit aroma, with a hint of floral soap. Taste is fresh resinous pine and tropical fruit juice, with a note of caramel citrus. Well-balanced refreshing fruit hoppiness.
