Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
S - Intense hop aroma. Orange peel, lemon zest, grapefruit rind, pine. Very juicy. Sugary malt in the background.
A - Golden color and quite clear, especially for an IIPA. Two-finger, fluffy off-white head with sticky lacing.
T - Well-balanced between hops and malts. Candy-like malts support the very complex hop flavor. Pine, citrus, herbal, minty and spicy hops blend together in an interesting combination. The flavor of pine lingers on the palate. Alcohol present but not overpowering and quite pleasant. Finishes semi-sweet.
M - Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol warming appropriate.
O - Another quality offering from Stone. Was surprised by the great differences between this and Stone IPA. This definitely is not a "double" of the IPA, but is quite original in its flavor and characteristics. Would definitely recommend.
