3.85/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

poured from bottle into Stone IPA stemware

A - hazy golden-brown color with a fat, two-finger, dirty tan head that settled to a thick, foamy cap; tons of sticky lacing on glass; some sediment left in bottle

S - lemony citrus with a touch of pepper in background; some honey, pollen

T - this hit me in two distinct stages; the first stage has moderate tropical flavor of pineapple and peach; the next stage ratcheted up the intensity with more resiny hops and a strong bittering finish that practically coats the entire mouth; some solvent alcohol towards the finish

M - light-medium body with moderate, but active, fine carbonation; LONG bitter finish that lasts quite a while

O - not something that i would want to drink again but i don't like the over-the-top hoppy beers; high alcohol and palette killing bitterness make it a sipper

4.33/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a bright orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a huge, foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A very hoppy smell, with a lot of citrus thrown in as well.

T: Tasted primarily of hops - lots of hops - along with some malt, grapefruit, pine, and a little lemon. A robust, complex, powerful flavor.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth, yet bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well made, focused, incredibly hoppy beer. This is one of the few European-made DIPAs that actually gets the style right. Very drinkable.

4.28/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden honey amber with a finger thick white head that coats the glass.

smells of citrus and pine notes.

Tastes of big hop bitterness (grapefruit) up front that mellows as the beer warms. ABV is 10% but hardly noticable.

Mouth feel is medium to low. The bitterness lingers after each sip.

Overall a surpisingly drinkable DIPA. Don't be afraid to pop this open alone you can definantly finish it.

4/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: clear orange with a 1" head. Huge lace paints the glass during the session.

Smell: citrus and a sharp hop bitterness cuts through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, pears, big grapefruit flavors, sharp bitterness, and a mild alcohol tone creates a well balanced DIPA.

Mouthfeel : medium bodied. Crisp throughout with a dry finish. Long lasting aftertaste dominated by the bitterness.

Overall: a nicely refreshing and easy drink big DIPA. Definitely worth giving this one a try.
