Pours in an orangish amber color, smells like, well, a strong beer. Plenty of hops when fresh.
Taste is mouth puckering hops initially. Midway through the bottle, the palate gets a little used to it. Wouldn't plan on drinking more than one of these, and yes, I'd drink this beer last if you're trying a few different beers in an evening.
Can be found at the Bistro on tap almost year round it seems. For some reason, the stuff on tap usually tastes a little smoother, less hoppy almost.
The first year round double ipa in production I believe. Not pushing the boundaries anymore, but stuff like this and Pliny were the innovators that many are imitating these days around the world.
Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed in a pint glass
A - Pretty golden/orange with a 1/2 inch beige head which subsides after a minute or two. Laying was plentiful but faint.
S - Very shy nose,even after warming up, of Grapefruit, citrus, and pine.
T - Grapefruit hits you right off the bat with hints of malt. This brew is all about the bitter hops however.
M - Medium body and carbonation but the bitter hops aftertaste stays with you for awhile after each sip.
O - A big hoppy beer, Stone let's you know right off the bat what you are in for and it doesn't disappoint.

Another gem out of Stone Brewery. This is a must drink double IPA.
Poured into a tulip. Poured a nice golden color with a firm white head that lingered for a good long time.
Smell was citrus (pineapple, grapefruit) and pine. Perfect hoppy smell
Taste was well balanced citrus sweet with a bitter, grapefruit end. Leaves you wanting to immediately take another sip
Medium body, smooth and refreshing
Outstanding beer that will be a staple in my refrigerator
