3.46/5 rDev -12.2%
Nice clarity. Orange brew with fast settling white fizzy bubbles. Head rises with ease and stays for a while. Good lacing.
Tons of lemon, orange, and pepper on the nose. Very different for a Stone brew. Salted butter popcorn comes to mind.
Oily, thin, light, heavy bitterness, extreme dryness, non invasive carbonation but it titters right on the edge of too heavy. Buttery, pine, biscuity, rounded out with interesting (lighter) flavors for an IPA.
I'd take an Enjoy By, R&R, Ruination, ect. over a 17. Recommended, but with a small grain of salt. A bit too bitter and over done for me.

22oz shared poured into wine glasses.
Appearance-pours light apricot with a golden hue with a 1 finger white head. Some medium lacing. 4
Aroma-coconut, lemon wedge, vanilla, slight orange. Not what I was expecting, much different than most IPAs on the market. 4
Taste-right at the front of the tongue you get some lemon zest sweetness, then transferring to more of a peppery spice taste. Back of the mouth is filled with bitterness, apricot and grapefruit comes thru nicely there. 4.5
Feel-medium bodied, I expected this to be heavier but it is quite easy to drink. ABV is hidden very nicely. Drys out the mouth in the finish. 4
Overall-the one thing I love about stone above all else is the value you get with every brew. One more thing I love is that they make a ton of their limited releases, I've never had a problem getting multiple bottles of them all. This beer is not as citrusy as the other IPA'S from stone, but it much more balanced then the other ones. This is a very solid one off, nothing more, nothing less. 4.25

A 22oz bomber picked up at Greens on Buford HWY
A- Copper, 1 inch of head, lots of sticky lace. Looks like another beautiful Stone DIPA
S - Big bitter nose. Lots of ABV, will burn your nose hairs off if too close! Smells amazing.
T - Huge bitter bite up front. Settles down a few sips in and is well balanced. Tasty as hell! Grapefruit
M - Medium bodied, well carbonated.
O - Another amazing DIPA from Stone. Would you expect anything less? Happy 17 Stone!

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.
Pours a ncie bright golden color with some clarity and some slight orangey/copper haze. There is a nice 0.25 inch off-white head that is dense. Sticky and with good retention.
Starts off herbal and grassy. Lemony notes and grapefruit notes with; nice citrusy components. Definitely more fresh and grassy and not as dank as other IPAs. There is definitely some nice tropical fruit notes in there on the back end.
Flavor starts off with a hop kick and explosion . Tons of citrus notes with fresh herbal and grassy notes coat the tongue. Dry, dry, dry bitterness sucks all the moisture out of the palate. There is more pine and dankness sin the flavor than perceived in the nose. Slightly acerbic with some lemony notes. Nothing like the 16th Anniversary though. Still the brew is exceptionally hoppy. There is a good bright carbonation with the body of the brew. Beneath the hops there is some earthy grain notes that can be perceived.
Overall. This is a good DIPA. It is pretty hoppy and intense and not necessarily that much different than other Stone DIPAs.

Bomber to a pilsner glass, why not? Enjoy by 10/17
Pours a bit of a pale or blond gold gold with a finger and a half of nice frothy foam. Moderate carbonation stemming from the sides of the glass gives the head good retention and lacing. Transparency is 100%, sexy looking beer
Poured some into a snifter for the smell. Aroma of floral and herbal hops, earthy mint and red fruits- strawberry, passion fruit, melon, hint of pomegranate. Wet wood and pale bready malts accentuate the hop profile, provides a nice backbone and adds a little balance. Alcohol becomes more noticeable in the back as the beir warms
Taste is right with the smell, herbal and very earthy floral hop bomb. Next mint mixing with strawberry particularly, along withmelon and the other fruits. Malts help balance the beer, very light with good finesse. Some booze with the finish, like with the nose becoming more noticeable with each sip as the beer warms
Feel is a light/medium body, strikes a contrast between strong pilsner and moderate iipa. Very bitter, crisp, refreshing on a warm August afternoon. Alcohol becomes less and less concealed as it warms, the colder the more drinkable
Overall another solid offering from stone. Very unique for an iipa, nothing like this has been done before. While it's far from the best beer I've had, it's good to see experimentation with the style that could someday lead to the best beer I've had. I was able to get a few bottles a couple days before it was released and the taste is already starting to change, so definitely something to drink as fresh as possible. Also keep it cold! Warmth in my opinion is this beers biggest enemy. Happy birthday stone, looking forward to many more
