Poured from a bottle into a duvel tulip
A-Gorgeous bottle, gorgeous pour, gorgeous beer, a vibrant bubbly tangerine orange with flakes of copper and amber when held up to the light. An excellent fluffy 1.5" stark white head sat for a couple minutes and dissipated into beautiful lacing.
S-Floral and citrusy hops, slight yeasty smell as well
T-Similar to the smell but expanded upon immensely. The initial taste is of course grapefruit and hops, slight yeast and honey-esque sweetness come next with a great malty/alcohol finish. All of these blend together flawlessly to create an amazing taste.
M-Medium body, excellent carbonation, slight silky aftertaste.
D-Soooo drinkable, this just may be the best DIPA I've ever had, I don't know how they do it but this is just another exceptional beer from Stone.
