So, maybe it is because I've been spoiled by the NW Style IPA, but I can't help but feel like this beer is so average. The color was really nice, but the love that makes up an IPA is all filtered out. It smelled pretty medicinal, it tasted bottled, maybe a little old. It wasn't bad, just wasn't great. I think I'll stick with Arrogant Bastard the next time I go for a Stone beer.
Keg @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a thin head. It's a hoppy ale, flavoursome, with a strength including caramel in its nose and lingering finish. caketm (421) - Czestochowa, POLAND - JAN 15, 2018
Puszka 0,33 l. Wypita 15.01.2018. Piwo uwarzone w Berlinie. Barwa złota, delikatnie zmętniona. Piana biała, gęsta i trwała, ładnie osadza się na szkle. Mocny cytrusowy aromat. Poza tym bliżej nie określona, nie zbyt fajna nuta, trochę jakby stodoła. W smaku potężna goryczka, ale też sporo słodkości, takiej klejącej. Konkretna ilość cytrusów, przede wszystkim gorzkiego grejpfruta. Wysycenie średnie. To piwo jest naprawdę dobre, choć nie jest idealne. dynamiteninja (1930) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2018

On tap, clear amber-copper. This one is quite bitter. Not very floral, but the citrus taste is there. The crispness really carries it. mulbila (6) - - JAN 8, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Pours a golden amber with a white head from the tap. Citrus and pine aroma. Crisp and very hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste. panda_brewmaster (128) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2018
Berlin can. Aromas of malt, hay and subtle grapefruit. Taste is quite bitter with some malty sweet and metallic notes. High carbonation and medium-full body. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. I believe one of the reasons Stone Brewing went to brew in Berlin was to prove a point that Americans can make good or even better beer than the Germans. They failed to do so with this one.
