One of the better, easily accessible DIPAs in rotation. I absolutely love this one.

A-white head that dissipates quickly, cloudy golden yellow color
S-there is a dank smell that accompanies a nice hop citrus, but more on the piny side of things
M-carbonation is perfect for an IPA
T-not too sweet, and a nice bitterness that lingers on the palate, nice malt backbone that compliments the hops
O-I recommend this beer, a solid IPA, thank you Stone.

The hops were, indeed, ruinous.

Pine resiny hoppiness. Still, very well balanced and not overly bitter or spicy. Citrusy with just a note of sweetness. A bitter, slightly metallic aftertaste. A definitive West Coast IPA.

Great citrus hops aroma, but the bitterness is just over the top for me. This is a tasty IPA that would be great with a more balanced finish.
