Gorgeous pale orange coloring with an almost unfiltered resemblance, this IPA sets up a thick and frothy head.
Nice citrus notes of grapefruit, tangerine and orange. Subtle pine and flowers sit at the back of the nose as the citrus notes disappate quickly.
Strong maltiness hits the tongue first and then piney resins finish. Earthy tones get caught between the two in a smooth feel. Bits of orange can be caught hiding in the middle but musty and harsh metallic tastes hold the aftertaste to ruination the palate.
I must admit that it seems to be Stones intention to ruin ones palate but its just that, that makes this beer lose points. Why create an IPA with clean smooth citrus and earthy tastes and then let a strong metallic taste ruin it all?
