Wow, first of, what a shitload of a bottle. An enormous 75cl Stone bottle. Cool, but not very handy, and very expensive.
Looks great though, and the beer in the glass is deep yellow/orange with small particles of hops(?).
The smell is full of hops, really nice. But not as extreme smell as Hercules IPA or Stone Ruination. Good anyway.
Taste is really, really bitter. Lots of hops and tropical fruits, but also quite sweet, almost caramelly. Nice.
To sum it up, nice, but not worth the price.

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
