A palate punisher. Nothing but onions, garlic, and pine on this thing. If you enjoy scrubbing your tongue for a good half hour, this is the IPA for you. Otherwise, pass with pride.

It's a good brew straight from the bottle or tulip and they did well, only stone beer I ever really enjoyed. Intense hop flavor that seems to be missing some sense of balance as far as brewing and intense hopiness, but it's a shame it's retired.

The beer is a hazy orange with some carbonation and a thin head that disappeared quickly. I get a nice bready, piney, orange aroma with a nice underlying sweetness. The beer has a nice roasty flavor and nice balance. Nice pine hops kick in the end but still very good. The beer has a good drying effect and a long bitter finish

This is most definitely my Stone favorite. An overload of hops with IBU off the scale while maintaining a good balance. Going to miss this one if it really is retired!

Quite possibly the first dipa to ever be bottled. Comes out a hearty mix of orange and auburn, drops plenty of hops all over the place.

Taste is ruiningly bitter. Its palate fatigue, but the good kind. Covers alcohol relatively well, the massive ibu payload is all up on you. Got a little malt heavy as lighter drier hop bombs came along, especially the citra hop, but this is definitely one that belongs in the time capsule, heavy C and maybe simcoe hops, lots of crystal malt, warming sensation.

Great beer! Super dank hops make this a standout in a crowded field!
