4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pours a cloudy copper orange with a moundy white head that lives long. Notch line lacing.
S - Pine needles, lime, grapefruit, mint, thyme, hints of sweet malt.
T - Grapefruit rind rushes over the palate taking over the back of the throat. It mellows out and lets the malt in for a split second and then takes back over towards the finish. Hints of herbal spearmint like hops show up as well. Finishes like you brushed your teeth with a grapefruit.
M - Medium bodied.
This beer is bursting with fruit flavor! You would expect a ton of bitterness out of such intense hops but the flavor is much more prominent than the bitterness. Very intense flavor without the crazy bitterness.
This is a corner"stone" IPA.
Serving type: bottle
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 (127) - 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. hpastar (9) - - JAN 6, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Flagship of Stone brewery. All beer I tasted in Berlin, and they are actually brewed in Berlin. This one is very good, fruit aromas, grapefruit, balanced beer.
