Wow! I never thought this beer could be so HUGE! This is probably one of the most complex DIPAs I've ever had. This is my wife's favorite beer.
Pours a crystal clear, bright orange/amber with a one-finger tightly packed white head. Lacing left all over the tulip glass (my wife prefers it out of a pint glass, but she's a novice - haha). Aroma is heavily that of citrusy/piney herbal hop aromas with a slight floral note powering through. Taste is overwhelmingly bitter hops, grapefruit and resinous pine notes, with a strong hoppy spice. Although it is strongly hopped, it is balanced well with toasted malt flavors and a slight caramel flavor. Definite alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is rather thick and slick, but the carbonation makes it tingly and easy drinking. Only the alcohol strength keeps me from quaffing this beer throughout the night, as I usually end up passed-out after three 22 oz. bottles, which is a good thing because otherwise it ends up being an expensive night of drinking.
Serving type: on-tap

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
