very bitter beer about as bitter as you can get before it becomes to much. looks great smells nice. the first taste is a punch in the face of bitterness only for the biggest fans of IPA but a must try for all beer lovers. IvoR (92) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours golden/light amber with a small head. Aroma of hops. Flavor is what you would expect from an IPA, only deeper and more bitter. I can’t feel any fruits probably because they are masked by the bitterns. However, the bitterness persists in the aftertaste and leaves you with a pleasant experience wanting for more. Overall, a very good IPA. Roguemike (4) - Post Falls, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2007 does not count
Any good IPA needs to be heavy on the hops, however it has a good bitter finish. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Deep copper and tawny beer with a nice rounded head and masterful lacing. Stone never ceases to amaze this IPA lover. Big fcitrus, piny, grapefruit nose with equally potent flavor and deiciously bitter finish. One of my favorite IPAs! Not well balanced, but well balanced isn’t always well. Stone keeps it real with this monster "regular" IPA. Yum! Highendfan (1) - Stockton, California, USA - JUL 10, 2007 does not count
First thing you notice is the clean taste followed by a crisp, almost non-existant aftertaste. It is pretty hoppy but I’d like more hops. A very drinkable, light body IPA.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Malty hoppy pine needles aroma. Sweet malty hoppy bitter piney flavor with hints of grapefruit. Sweet malty hoppy finish with a long bitter aftertaste. larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2007
Smallish white head. Amber body. Deep, firm malty aroma with resiny, citric hop notes, as well as dry straw and grain. Beautifully clear. Deep, sweet, firm, dry malty straw taste with intense floral, resin, hay and pine needle notes. Clean, smooth mouthfeel, yet sharpish. Long, drawn-out dry hay and resin aftertaste. Absolutely gorgeous. (0.355l bottle at Oliver Twist.) HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours golden yellow with a white fluffy head. Aggressive west coast hop aroma, very pungent. Lots of tongue splitting hops up front. Alcohol is well hidden by the hop bitterness. Not much malt flavor to speak. The hoppiness is very refreshing. This is what I think of when I think of an IPA. xenthem0nk (101) - Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Pours light amber. Tall foamy head. Great aroma, lots of hops, and bitter fruit. Flavor was good, complex. Texture had carbonation, but retained the smooth feel I like in IPAs. Recommend it. scottmc (167) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007
A Great IPA. This beer that has all the taste you would ever want. A nice orange and foamy head mixed with a dark golden body that is exploding with hop aromas and flavors. The dry hoppying really fills in the brew with its outstanding aromas.
