3.99/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled on 05/02/14. Almost four weeks old.

A: Pours a clear red with a nice frothy light tan head. Nice head retention but just the thinnest little bits of lacing.

S: Smells reminds me of....mosaic? It's got kind of an herbal, spicy, citrusy hop aroma. Quite floral at times too, almost lavender-ish.

T: Much stronger hop character up front than the aroma betrays. Lots of spicy pine and herbal qualities. LOTS. It starts out strong but actually intensifies through to the finish. Lots of black pepper in the finish with more herbal hops and hints of pine still floating around. Spicy and dry. No real sign of malt. It's a lightly sweet backing to all the hop flavors and mild bitterness but I can't even describe the taste. Bready I guess?

M: Medium bodied, spicy and slightly dry.

O: A seriously spicy DIPA. Not spicy hot. Spicy pine and herbal hops and even black pepper like some saisons. Too many to count really, it feels like they dumped a spice rack into this beer. Tasty and enjoyable but a touch over the top (Stone, over the top with hop character? Nahhhh)

4.23/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Honey in a glass.

Aroma: It's a Stone IPA for sure. Candied fruit, accompanied by tropical fruit. A slight aroma of alcohol but well hidden.

Taste: Tropical fruits, mango, maybe a hint of pineapple. Some additional bitterness at the back end. I'm not sure if it's from the elderberries, or the coriander. Alcohol we'll hidden, but this is right from the fridge.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a rich creaminess.

Overall: I give this beer an A-. If you like double IPA's from Stone, give it a go if it's still floating around. Not a bad beer at all.

Thanks to my wife for bringing this one home. ;)
Pours a clear medium amber with minimal head into a tulip glass.
Smells hoppy, dank, with some breadiness and spice from the coriander.
Tastes really interesting. Hoppy up front on my tongue, elderberry flavor midway and hop bitterness on back of tongue. Very interesting!
Mouthfeel was easy drinking for a 9.3% ABV.
Overall, this was a well done Stone beer. Flavorful and interesting.
