4.43/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Beautiful clear amber color with a thick white head that seems to never dissipate. Looks exactly the way an IPA should look.

Smell: Wonderful bouquet of citrus and piney hops with some malt character coming through towards the end. The citrus is by far and away the most present smell though.

Taste: A nice balance of hoppy bitterness, piney earthy notes as well as some citrus, and a finish of malty caramel sweetness. The hop character lingers on the tongue the way an IPA should.

Mouthfeel: Not a lot of carbonation bite but yet not very smooth either. The beer could definitely use some work in this department.

This is definitely an IPA that has made it into my everyday enjoyment. Stone has created a really nice IPA and the price is right.

4.04/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Tasted On: 04-23-2014
Freshness: Enjoy by 05-15-2014
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Nonic pint
Purchased: Single from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville

Hazy and honey in color, the beer shows a very nice creamy white head of 3 fingers. Pretty fingers of lace stick around as the very good head retention fades.

Aromas are of citrus hops plus tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple. Very nice nose.

Taste is heavily bitter in the first sips, followed by some caramel malt flavors on the back end. The 100 IBUs make for a somewhat harsh taste, but it is still good overall.

Body is in between medium and full, with lots of carbonation in the mouthfeel. The finish has strong bitterness and flavors of tropical fruits and the ABV provides some warming.

Overall a very good beer, although I prefer a DIPA to have more malt character then this one does.
