I picked up a 22oz'er. Poured this into my unofficial offical IPA glass (a Guinness pint glass). Pours a light golden color. Moderate head that fades quickly. Nice lacing on the glass. It has a nicely balanced smell of hops, pine and fruit. Not real overpowering and well balanced. As with the aroma, the taste is very well balanced. They didn't just dump a pile of hops into this. The hops and pine complement each other nicely, and a real nice bitterness follows (makes me wonder what the IBU is). For an IPA, it's light bodied and is real easy to drink. It leaves some stick in the mouth, and the bitterness almost has me rubbing my teeth. This a real good IPA and a very enjoyable drink. The Stone Brewery is new to me and I have been very impressed so far.
