22 oz bottle best by 7/9/12 little past the date but close enough

A: light orange, dark gold, nice 1-2 finger fluffy white/off white head, some chill haze present. Head hangs around and lacing is nice

S: pineapple, mango, floral, earthy, sweet caramel

T: sweet malt upfront then a wave of bitter fruity hops, pineapple, mango, floral. nice and stout bitterness, but very tasty.

M: light-Medium bodied, with ok carbonation, perhaps a component of the lack of freshness.

*Reported this to stone, hopefully we can get some fresh new bottles soon

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy light orange with a one-finger, white, foamy head that lasted more than several minutes. Very nice lacing.

S: Floral hops and sweet malt. Tropical aromas linger.

T: Light sweetness with a solid hop bitterness. Floral hops with a pronounced bitterness. Light toast.

M: Medium bodied with light carbonation. Smooth and dry.

O: This is a really good imperial IPA. Beautiful to look at with a wonderful, strong aroma.
