I would drink this again, but wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

A - Poured an incredibly dark mahogany brown, almost black. Formed a huge three finger medium tan/brown head. Nice solid lacing on the glass.
S - Sweet oranges, apples, grapefruit, hops, tangerine and deep roasty caramel.
T - Sweet orange and grapefruit upfront, with a sweet malty backbone that follows. Ends bitter to help round off the initial sweetness. Very well balanced.
O - A damned fine, 5 star black IPA.
V - Bought as a single. Unsure of pricing.

It pours a beautiful black color with a light colored foamy head. It smells hoppy with a spicy finish. Taste is that of hops and burnt malt with a decent citrus undertone. Slightly boozy. Feel is of medium body and active carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable brew. Nothing amazing, just another solid Stone offering.
