look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a clear amber with a two-finger white foamy head. Heavy amount of lacing.

S - Aroma is not as pronounced as most Stone beers. Citrus with some sweet malts. Faint amount of piney hops.

T - Starts with a nice amount of sweet malts. Once the sweetness fades it's a big blast of bitter grapefruit and piney hops. Finish is all grapefruit peel with a nice lingering bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a rather enjoyable big bitter beer. Recommended for Stone fans and IPA fans.

3.35/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle purchased at Cleveland Park Wine and Liquors in NW D.C., unknown bottling date but definitely recent, poured into my FFF Teku glass and drank while reviewing over an hour.

A - 3/3 - typical Stone DIPA here - amber- brown coloration, crystal clear on pouring from the bottle with a frothy white one finger head that settles into a subtle glass lacing after several minutes; moderate alcohol legs; carbonation reagutates on the swirl

S: 8/12 - lots of classic PW hop aromas - grapefruit, tangerine, piney, floral - but overall more muted than other Stone DIPAs like 'Enjoy By;" more detectable malt character on the nose than other Stone IPAs

T: 11/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a huge slap bitterness that took me aback at first likely provided by the grapefruit peel and not the hops - to my taste buds. it was an astringency that I found unpleasant; in the middle of the mouth, the bitterness continues to oppress but there is a citrus and piney (but not dank) qualities that becomes more inviting; finishes super dry with little malt and alcohol detectable on my palate, which invites subsequent sips; unfortunately, the bitterness lingers well beyond the sip

M: 2/5 - moderate body, little hop oils coating the tongue but not a big mouth presence from either the hops or the alcohol

O: 6/10 - I'll go out on a limb here and offer this as maybe the worst Stone DIPA for me; it reminds me of IPA recipes of old in the pre-tropical hop days - that huge slap of bitterness is one of the major reasons that I didn't like IPAs at first, and still don't like grapefruit to this day; if you like bitter IPAs like Victory's Hop Wallop or Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid; you'll enjoy this but I'm close to drain pouring it and drinking my own all-Citra APA as a palate restorer

TOTAL - 28/50
