Another classic in the long line of Stone IPA's. I wish they would make more of this one, than a one time. Had it on tap and it was one of the better beers I tasted. Bought a growler, looking forward to enjoying it tomorrow.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus, caramelized malts and touches of berries and spice.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of grassy hops bitterness. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of citrus and caramel. I did not pick up much of the elderberries or coriander until the after-taste. The malt character is hearty and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are better choices within the style that I would pick first.

Pours without any noticeable head. Intensely fruity aroma - pineapple, grapefruit, lemon peel. Less malty than one would expect from a beer with a comparable ABV. No noticeable yeast flavors, but relatively strong and lingering bitterness. No noticeable trace of the coriander or elderberries, at least as far as I can tell. As with other Stone offerings, seems a little one-note to me, but very drinkable nonetheless.
