It is one of the cool things about IPAs that they can be similar but then be very different. First time buy and taste of Stone Unapologetic. Came from the local HEB in the usual 22 oz brown bottle but with a catchy job of yellow labeling. I carefully poured into an appropriate 12 oz glass mug making sure I left an inch of yellow-white foam. Liquid is a nice medium yellow-gold with a very active stream of bubbles carbonating to the top. First taste, wow, immediate orange and then lemon. A bit of spruce seeping in. Hoppy, yes. All nice. The 9% ABV is lurking. Likely another Unapologetic in the near future.

Pours a rich amber with a medium, white lasting head with lacing

Smells of citrus, pine and caramel malts

Tastes of citrus and doughy malt with a faint pine bitterness. Well balanced. Finishes mostly dry with a short linger of resinous pine. Medium body and smooth medium carbonation.

Ba Bam! Perhaps the best I have had from this fabled brewer. Hoppy. Flavorful. Great nose. The site says this is "retired," but this was brewed recently and given to me as a gift. Major props and thumbs up!

From 22oz bottle dated 08/07/16. Most likely past it's prime but still mighty tasty. Thick and sweet with slight top bite. Bitterness abound. Solid DIPA. 4.00

Dark yellow colour with medium head.
Hoppy smell, very pleasant and refreshing.
Citrus aroma, combined with a lot of herbal, flowery hops, some bitterness afterwards (grapefruit) and hints of tropical fruits.
Very good, but not spectacular.

Still Unaplogetic IPA bottled 8/12/16.

Orange hued amber and gold color, heady thick foam cap.

The aroma popping out of the glass from these three hop strains is pretty awesome. Very spicey, dry herbals with light tropicals and sweet pine. Extremely fresh hop scented, big and bold. The malt is very honey sweet smelling, more tropical tang and sweetness pops out as the liquid warms. Some heat tingle and more sweetness later on.

The hop flavor goes on for miles, very complex indeed. The dominant hop flavor here is a very dry-earthy, herbal hearty edge, I personally love this certain hop effect. Old school hop flavor with pine, tropical fruit and musty earth coloring the edges. Malt is very crisp but giving the brew a full bodied, heavy feel with no lack of crisp bite.

Living in NH I was introduced to Stone around 1999. I really cannot believe its been that long. Happy birthday Stone and friends.

Big. Hoppy. Boozy. This is, like all Stone IPAs, legit. Get it if you can find it.
