4.38/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Stone IPA glass.

A: Pours a lighter yellow color than most DIPA's. More like a golden yellow with a slightly darkened tint. One finger white head with some lacing. Very inviting brew to look at.

S: Not extremely aromatic, but the only nose is hops, hops, and more hops. Some grapefruit and orange, maybe some pine and grassy notes.

T: Bitter! A hophead's dream. I haven't had this beer in quite some time and I forgot how many more bittering hops Stone uses with this brew than other DIPA's. The brew starts bitter, a little bit of citrus fruit and pine come through mid-palate, and finishes grassy and bitter. There is not a lot of malt flavor, which works for me.

M: Medium body with a the right amount of carbonation.

D: Might be tough to drink for some due to the high bitterness, but this is a great and readily available beer. It's a great go-to for anyone that loves hops and bitter beer.
