Appearance: Very nice dark amber color with a two finger head that slowly recedes to a one finger head. Very good lacing.

Smell: Hops, hops, and hops. It's difficult to notice anything else through the overpowering aroma of hops. Fortunately, as a hophead, I can't wait to take a sip.

Taste: Beautifully bitter. Amazing hop flavor with grapefruit being most noticeable. Despite its 100+ IBU's, it is surprisingly balanced.

Mouthfeel: Perfect carbonation and a great body. Very nice mouthfeel.

Overall: Such an amazing beer. This will definitely be purchased again.

Thanks to Phyl21ca for this one.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, best by date undecipherable.

Appearance: Body is, hazy dark yellow bordering on orange. Hills & valleys of creamy whipped head.

Smell: Nice hops, raw with orange rinds.

Taste: Really nice plushy peach, fringes of grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation, smooth texture and the bitterness creeps around but never overtakes.

Overall: Not a palate wrecker but a very tasty IPA nonetheless.

Best by 04/17/12. Consumed 02/06/12. Bomber poured into a pint glass.
Slightly hazy gold, white head, great head retention and some lacing is left.
An inviting fruity and piney aroma erupts out of the glass.
Man, this thing is freakin great. The bitterness isn’t detracting in the least. The hops and malt work great. The hop flavor hits first then the bitterness and malt character at the end to round it out. A little woody in the aftertaste. The alcohol definitely picks up after warming up for a while. I think I enjoy it more with that added variable to the equation.
Medium body and pretty smooth.
Stone is a bawse.
