4.03/5 rDev -6.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: This has a mostly clear golden color to it. When its first served there is some haze to it that dissipates. Nice pure white head to it.
Smell: Mostly citrus in the smell with a slight biscuit after tone to it. Not much malt in the smell at all.
Taste: This beer screams IBU's. It is pretty abrasively bitter at first but after drinking a bit it settles down. Very hoppy in the forefront of the taste followed by just a slight malt backbone. Definitely very hop forward.
Mouthfeel: Nice amount of carbonation that deliver that strong bitterness over the palate.
Overall: This is a great Double that I can drink a 22 of and be pretty satisfied. I buy this every once in a while when i need a real bitter fix. Stone definitely has the tendency to brew ipa's with more of the hop forward west coast style as they should be.
Serving type: bottle
