Enjoy By 4/20/13 poured from 22oz into a pint glass
A golden hazy hello color with a few carbonation bubbles rising to the top , a pretty white 2 finger head with lacing sticking to the sides of the glass and hanging on through the whole glass
The first thing I smell is the hops , then some sweet malt then a little bit of booze on the end. The hop smell has a faint citrus smell to me but not over powering
This beer goes down smooth and is very refreshing. Not too much carbonation and not to heavy on the tounge , every thing is just right
The taste is really complex , not too bitter , starts off with a hoppy flavor with the malty sweetness hitting in the middle with the booze finishing off at the end , not too sweet , not too hoppy and the booze isn't too over powering. This is a really great beer and I will be buying more of it

A- Pours a very nice bright golden straw/amber color. Created a quick 2 finger width off-white head that faded quickly leaving some lingering lacing.
S - Wow, smells amazing. A great hop hit, with great grapefruit and mango accents. A little pine and malt there for good measure. It reminds me of Sucks a little.
T - More of the same. An great hop blast, with wonderful citrus throughout.
M - Crisp, light bodied and leaves a dry palate. It is smooth despite it's higher ABV.
O - The last batch (and first) I had of this was back in December and it really surprised me. This batch did exactly the same. This beer is amazing. Fresh, easy to drink and well balanced. Well done Stone.

From a bomber into a snifter
Review is from notes kids...
APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with good retention. Perfectly clear gamboge orange, though more amber when held to the light, with lower levels of carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a wisp and sticks to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains and leavs some dots of lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Lots of citrus, grapefruit, lemon and orange peel on the nose. Floral elements with some melon and a touch of caramel. Really bold and heavy on the citrus and grapefruit quality. Nice stuff.
TASTE: Lots of pine, grapefruit, lemon and citrus flavors for sure. Floral and piney bitterness at the swallow with a big but dry finish of bitter citrus and floral hops, pine and a touch of caramel sweetness. The hops are great and it's very flavorful, though I'd appreciate a slightly bigger malt profile as balance. Still very enjoyable.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes dry. Good feel.
OVERALL: Another good IPA from Stone. This is a fun series and I ask myself whether any of the collectors are putting together verticals of this bad boy. I would like to see a little more malt presence here so as to add another dimension to the beer, but the hop profile is quite lovely as the centerpiece anyways. High quality and would gladly drink again. Cheers vissai.
