Appearance :Golden and cloudy in color. A lot of lacing on the glass. One finger head.
Smell: Hops, pine, citrus peel
Taste: very similar to smell with hops and pine. Citrus peel finish, and dry.
Mouth feel:this imperial IPA has a very solid mouthfeel. Not watery at all, and is well balanced with the higher alcohol content.
Overall: this is solid! I am a huge fan of Stone's IPA's but I enjoy the pine flavored present in both aroma and taste. The mouthfeel is also excellent! I would like to enjoy this again!

The beer pours a pale orange color with notes of amber. The beer forms a big, beautiful head of creamy white bubbles that last at about a finger’s width above the glass. In body, the beer is clean of particles, but very hazy and nearly opaque. On the nose, this beer is big and beautiful. Pine needles, pinecones and sweet mango juice mingle with dank and spicy weed, grapefruit rind, and soft alcohol notes. From the can, the nose is just about the same with just a touch more roundness coming from the citric scents and less of the alcohol burning the nostrils. On the tongue, the beer tastes hugely and properly bitter with resinous pine sap sticking to the tongue. Sweet hops, alcohol, and light bread malt mingle with citric acidity to make up the side show. The finish is dry with only slight sticky sweetness lingering. On the tongue, the beer is medium bodied, with fluffy carbonation that gives velvet softness to the mouthfeel. The mouth is left sticky with resin and bitter tingling, the palate is wrecked. From the can, the beer feels slightly crisper. In flavor, the beer tastes of resinous pine, sweet mango, light pineapple, grapefruit, and apricot. Distinct fresh hop flavors bubble on the tongue and feel sticky and very resinous. The taste has a strong backbone of medicinal bitters. Mmm. A bit sickly sweet, but not too much so. The cloying alcohol seems most present in the finish which also features dry cracker malts at the very base of my senses and strong piney hops. Overall, this is a damn good double IPA. It would be excellent on a late summer afternoon. Great bitters, great hop character, and a great effect on the tongue. The alcohol is just a tad too much, but other than that I like this beer a lot.

Huge thanks to TheSevenDuffs for including this in the fall Canbif, huge want.

A: Muted orange colour, slightly hazy with small amounts of sediment suspended throughout. 1-2 fingers of bone white head which leaves plenty of lacing.

S: Musk melon and orange peel together with incredible herbal hop notes and earthiness. Hints of fresh lemon in the background along with caramel.

T: Pronounced herbal and pine resin sap followed by orange rind. All balanced by a large amount candy sugar. Finishes with a slight bitterness on the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, creamy in texture.

O: Unique in the herbal notes which are very pronounced and enjoyable. Expertly balanced with a high amount of malts while still allowing the hops to shine through. Well deserving of its ranking.
