4.46/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bottle 22 oz, $5.99, best by 4/8/13, drank on 2/10/13. Poured into Spiegelau snifter.

Appearance: Clear golden amber color, pure white 2-3 finger head, good retention, moderate lacing.

Smell: VERY nice. Grapefruit, mango, flowers, lots of pine, orange.

Taste: A bit subdued compared to the smell, but still quite nice. Follows along the smell profile, hop-forward taste with a lot of bitterness. Not very much malt at all. Just a tad thin to be world-class though.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, quite smooth. Not too sticky. A bit thin, as above.

Overall: Great DIPA from Stone that would doubtlessly be a staple of mine if available as a six pack for $12 or so. Still a good value at $6 a bomber, but I just don't buy it that often. Hop Henge is better IMO and is at the same price point. Always like to grab a pint of this when it's on tap though.
