4.9/5 rDev +13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Apearance: Golden-copper tone and small, frothy head. Very nice lacing as well.
Smell: I smelled the sour hops as soon as I broke it open. Really enticing.
Taste: Very palpable hop bitterness. Grapefriut sourness and citiric tones. Its bitterness is not "dark" like an English IPA, it refreshing and sour like a classic American IPA. Saltiness increases as it warms. Stone has brewed a winner.
Mouthfeel: Lightness in the mouth balances perfectly with hops. Good carbonation.
Drinkability: I don't care about its ABV, I can't put it down!
Notes: Is it just me, or is there something similar in the flavor of all of Stone's brews, no matter what the style? It's hard to put my finger on it.
Serving type: bottle
