look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear orange color with a nice half inch head and lots of lacing all around.

Scent is of sweet, biscuity malts, huge piney hops dominate however.

Taste is very nice. Starts out almost sugary sweet with a gigantic hop smack in the face immediately following, piney with a huge dry citrus finish. The grapefruit stays there for an eternity. This has an outstanding hop flavor like no other IPA I have had before. It is bound to offend those not accustomed to big hop flavor.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and even refreshing. Perfect carbination for this beer. It has a medium body (leaning towards full bodied).

Drinkability is on the higher end of the scale. I got this one from my brother in Boise; I wish I had another. Hop burps, yes, this is a very drinkable beer..

This is my first Stone product. If this is any indication of the ability of that brewery, I need to acquire more of these Stone beers.
