Poured into my Stella Artois gold-rimmed tulip glass it gave up a rich thick foamy head that left light lacing down from the rim.
The color is Cloudy tea colored and slightly orange with lots of tiny bubbles continuing to come up from the bottom.The smell is a wonderful fruity hoppy aroma with bit of alcohol in the mix.
The taste is kinda dirty at first but soon yeilds hops and an ainse flavor hidden in the lemony alcohol.
Mouthfeel is clean with lots of carbonation to sizzle the tounge.
Great flavor and the hops aren't overwhelming. Stone brewery is doing great things.

Poured into a Burlington Beer Works pint glass.
A well-reviewed highly anticipated IPA.
A: This beer pours smoothly, a dark gold color with a mild head and very resilient lacing. It has tinges of red and brown in its translucent body. A very nice, attractive beer that just shouts its richness and fullness at you.
S: A wonderfully biting hopiness over a thick grapefruit body. Pepper hints are accompanied by an earthy aroma and fresh pine.
T: An extremely thick but smooth beer. The first flavor is a very wonderful hop-intense bite that is followed by a lovely citrus and grapefruit with a hint of green apple. This beer has a nice layered texture with the citrus and fruit notes on top with a nice undercurrent of thick rich hops and a good malty base. There are also some mild hints of herbal flavors and a rose-like nose with some pepper.
M: Rich and thick but smooth with a crisp finish and a very powerful hoppy bite giving a prickly fresh mouthfeel. Extremely well layered.
O: A wonderful IPA, definitely worthy of its huge following. Excited to try more from this brewery. Very rich with huge flavors and tons of intricate layers. Lovely lovely.
