Bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: A pretty typical color for an IPA appearing a deep burnt orange.
S: Very floral and citrusy in the nose.
T: The taste, like the smell, is very floral and citrusy. It almost tastes like that flowery perfume smells that the old women would wear when I was a kid.
M: Pretty typical.
O: Don't get me wrong, this is a delicious IPA, but I feel that there is just nothing really separating it from the rest of the pack. It seems pretty generic in the land of IPA's, but as usual, Stone turned out a beer I would glady drink again and buy a whole case of, but there is just not a distinct hop flavor or aroma or an unusual malt backbone that really grabs my attention.
I just didn't taste anything that deserved all the arrogance that was painted all over this label, even if the words were true. After all, hops are so delicious and have slightly ruined my appreciation for all other tastes, but it wasn't this beer that did it for me.
