4.8/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a pint glass. Pours hazy orange gold with a tall white head and plenty of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates very slowly, leaving lacing on the side of the glass. The aroma is of citrus and resinous pine. The malt also comes through in the aroma. This is such a hop forward smell. The hop forward nose gives way towards a very hop forward taste. The big piney hops lead into the citrus and sweet malt tastes. The hops are lovely and this beer is well balanced. The body is medium to full with adequate carbonation. The beer is sticky in the mouth. The drinkability is high. This is a well-balanced beer that definitely fits the world class label. Well done, Stone.

4.28/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - poured a slightly Hazey golden almost orange body with 3/4 finger loose white head with large bubbles. Head was fleeting lasting only seconds, but left decent lacing.

S - massive hops, dominated by piney citrusy and grapefruit notes. Strong sweet and sticky malt character wafts through, with a slight fruityness.

T - very fresh tasting example, hop dominant up front, less piney as the nose more of a citrusy herbal tea flavor. Malt provides a very strong body and sweetness to keep the hops in check. Finishes less bitter than I expected, and actually a little sweeter than I would prefer.

M - thick n syrupy for the style, very stone-ish in its feel and is just delightful.

O - overall, as expected very enjoyable stone quality. Great fresh hop nose and flavor with a sticky and sweet body. Finish is clean but a little sweet and less bitter than I would expect. Great example of the style only thing i wish is it would be a little more attenuated.
