Brewed at the new Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station. This bright and deep gold IPA is brewed with six great hops thrown into the mix, including the addition of two new hops (Mosaic and El Dorado) that Stone has never used before. It’s full bodied, dry and very bitter, with flavors of spiced bread, grapefruit, lemon, nectarine and pine.

    Had a bottle of this at a Smokey Bones in Florida. Hazy light yellow colour with a white head, good stay and dirty lacing. Citrus hop aromas with lemon notes and grassiness. Very dry mouthfeel with a great bitterness built-up in the finish. Wow, quite bitter and grassy tasting! If you like hopbombs, you should like this.

    Orange pour with a thin white head. Very little lace. Pleasant grass and citrus aroma. Pretty tame IPA. Not much hop bitterness and citrus flavor. Very good IPA but just not great.

    Pours hazy, translucent honey-golden with a thick and persistent eggshell head. Aroma is strong, hoppy and resin you with fruity and floral undertones. Flavor is hoppy, mainly destiny, with some fruit and malt, scarcely bitter. Smooth yet lively texture is fairly thick and firm. Yes, delicious!

    7.7% abv on the bottle. Tasty but not quite delicious. Hop forward beer. Citrus flavour with lemon and pine being the most dominating with grainy malts. Sweet grass aroma. Ok beer but far from one of Stones better IPA's.

    A bold orange-amber colored beer with a big frothy textured off white head rising above. There's decent hang time on the head. It settles into a robust lacing. Lots of sweet citrus in the nose. The bittering citric and pine hops are in the taste. But sessionable.

    Bright amber orange colored body with a thick head with great retention that left some decent lace. Aromas of fresh lemon, mint, pineapple and pine.Good flavor with notes of lemon, tropical fruit, pine, hints of yeasts with a malt punch in the middle. Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall it smells better than it tastes, but it tastes good.

    12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is a bit subdued - resiny piney catty hops with some sugary fruit.

    The flavor is sweet bready malt and a little fruit with catty resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, I taste no difference due to lack of gluten - definitely the hoppiest gluten reduced beer I've had. The hops aren't my favorite though...a bit catty.

    Not overly aggressive, especially when compared to the also on tap RuinTen. A nice orange and pine aroma and flavor. Semi bitter and a little sweet leaning. Indeed delicious, almost sessionable for an imperial.
