Poured with a large white fluffy head with some staying power. Leaves plenty of nice lacing behind.
Other than the appearance of the beer the first thing that you notice is the intense citrusy hops smell permeating through the room. Upon sticking your nose in the glass there is a nice floral honey sweetness and citrusy hoppiness.
Sipping this beer is a heavenly experience. There is a beautiful balance between sweetness and bitterness. To be honest I was afraid that the balance would be off. Up front it hits you with the floral honey sweetness that gives way to a grapefruit like hoppiness that lingers and coats the mouth with the oily hopiness. This beer goes down quite easy. Defiantly full bodied and creamy.
This is a beer that I can see myself coming back to. This is better than the Stone IPA in my opinion. Glad I gave Stone a second chance.
