A- looks almost like an adjunct lager!! Almost offputting even knowing its a session beer. thinest head Ive ever seen on a Stone beer.
S- WOW this smells like a fresh bag of hops! Im a homebrewer and I stick my nose in a freshly opened vacuum sealed bag of hops alot. This beer smells louder than most of those bags! Its amazing! One of the best aromas Ive ever smelled. Absolutely fantastic.
T- Another WOW! This is probably one of Stones tastiest products. Even my dad says its incredible that bigger hop forward beers arent half as good. I dont really taste any malt, just hops on hops on hops.Dank resinous floral earthy spicy maybe a little pine in there. Citrus on the end and bitterness lingers for quite sometime. All this after I just drank a Victory DirtWolf!
M- Ehh what can I say, it fits for 4.5% but its the only thing I dont like about this beer.
Overall? This beer kicks Founders All Day and Sierra Nevads Nooner out of the water! Stone is KILLING it right now! Always loved Stone, this just makes me love them more. Im glad I could purchase a single bottle though, because $12-13 for a 4.5% 6er is way too much, sorry. Wish it was in bombers.

Pours a hazy straw gold color with a small bubbly white head and average retention. Plenty of bands of lacing on the glass.
Good aroma of piney hops. Taste is piney hops, plenty of bitterness and a little bready malt for balance. I thought I detected a slight trace of (for me) the dreaded Summit hops but it was just a fleeting thing.
Mouthfeel is crisp and rich enough for such a low abv beer. Plenty of bitterness to go around. A solid session IPA.
