A: A bright, hazy orange. Nice head on the initial pour and fantastic lacing. Almost sparkles.
S: Wow. Great stuff here. Piney resin is subtle with some huge tropical notes and hints of grapefruit. As it warms, the alcohol comes out and there is a bit of booziness.
T: Giant hops. Pure Stone through and through. But also I'm surprised by how drinkable it is. Goes down smooth for a DIPA. Easily top three DIPAs I've had. No question.
M: It's not syrupy but there is some heft there. And, this beer really covers your entire palate - it hits all the notes.
O: The best one-off DIPA I've had. Hands down. There are seasonal releases that top it, but in terms of a 'celebration' beer, nothing I've tasted comes close. Stone continues its traditon of continually raising the bar. Excellent.
