Not a bad IPA. Not enough carbonation and little too citrous for me.

Very floral and sweet on the nose. Definitely get the lemon oil in the taste. Very hoppy as well. Lemon is too much. Destroys the palate. profile - March 10, 2013
Full malty beginning hop in the middle and huge citrus hops pounding finish. Great beer. Stone has never let me down with an ipa

Wow, that's an intense and delicious beer! Great nose, the lemon verbena and hops really come through. Medium to slightly heavy body. Coats the palette nicely with pleasant but very noticeable hops. Perfect balance of malt for the Stone style. Doesn't taste too hot for it's high alcohol content.

Spicy, herby, citrusy. Very complex. There's a lot going on in this beer. In a word...amazing. One of the best I've ever had.

Pours an amber color with a thick off white to yellow head. Aroma of pine and light lemon, maybe toffee as well, something sweet that I can't quite place. Bitterness of hops with lemon and herbal flavors, a bit of the toffee sweetness on the taste as well. A great take on an imperial ipa, hoppy and fully of alcohol, but refreshing and drinkable at the same time. Would definitely buy again before they become unavailable.

12/26/12 - a bitter kick in the throat. Hint of lemon drop.
