It's hard to add to the accolades of this near-perfect DIPA, except to say that:
1. The aroma is off the scale, and
2. Giant Supermarkets now sells the bomber for $5.00 in Northern Virginia, which means this masterpiece has achieved a distribution that should right-size a lot more palates

A: Poured a golden honey with a healthy lacing. The head was 1/2 the whole glass

S: Big blast of citrus and piney hops. As a hop head, this is a heavenly smell, although the smell doesn't necessarily distinguish itself from other awesomely hoppy beers. Great grapefruit nose here, (very) reminiscent of DFH 60 Minute.

T: This is a really smooth, almost creamy IPA. Again, the key here is a balance between malt and hops. A beer this strong can go to one of the two extremes pretty easily. It is over 100+ IBUs, after all. Great citrus notes at the front, and the hops hit the back of the tongue without overpowering the imbiber. Can't believe how well the pine and resin flavors come out throughout the beer. Stone nailed this one.

M: Very little carbonation, but very refreshing.

O: A well-balanced IPA with enough pop for the hop heads out there. Really intrigued be this beer, and will be back for more. Kudos, Stone!
