4.58/5 rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Served on-tap in a tulip glass.
Appearance: Dark orange/copper. Off-white head. Semi-translucent. Looks very appetizing.
Aroma: Grapefruit up front. Nice hop presence and some underlying malts. Nothing overpowering.
Taste: Fantastic. Solid bitterness throughout (not surprising at over 100 IBU's) with definite tropical fruit and grapefruit notes. Surprisingly juicy for a double IPA. The bitterness lingers but not long enough to be problematic. The fine balance of flavors gives it an edge over other beers of this style.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and tongue biting. A little drying on the tongue after the halfway point. It can be hard to sip and savor considering the above average drinkability.
Final Thoughts: I wish this wasn't a limited release. Definitely in the top ten beers I've had. Get it while you can, it does not disappoint!
Serving type: on-tap

22 oz. bomber poured (partially) into a pint glass.
A-pours a beautiful clear, orange color with a finger or more of head which dissipates slowly to a thin layer of fine bubbles.
S-great aroma of tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, etc.) Some pine as well.
T-spicy, tropical flavors with some nice malty, carmel flavors to round it out.
M-Nice level of carbonation and hop bitterness to cut the sweet. This drinks pretty well for such a large beer. Full-bodied for sure but in no way syrupy like some of the other 10% beers get. Very enjoyable.
O-Fantastic offering from stone. I love beers with this hop profile and that are this size without feeling like a port wine in weight.
