This beer was utterly awful. Drain pour to the extreme. Thanks to yourefragile for sharing. Served in a goblet. Pours inoffensively enough, but then it quickly fills the air with the disgusting scent of lemon household cleaner and...nothing else. I was hesitant to take a sip, thinking it couldn’t be safe. For my taste buds, it wasn’t. More lemon. At least some bitterness here, but that didn’t help anything. Memo to Stone: sometimes it’s okay not to go extreme.

3.95/5 rDev +3.7%
Appearance: pours an orange color with a 1" head that lasts. It slowly falls to a thick surface foam.
Smell: lemon, earthy hops, and some caramel come through to the nose.
Taste: caramel, lemon, spicy rye, earthy hop bitterness, and a mild fruitiness creates a well balanced flavors. Alcohol is noticeable and warming.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. There is a bit of dryness arriving late.
Overall: a slower sipping big DIPA that has a nice spicy and earthy flavor. Enjoyable beer.
