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

Pours an orange color with a dense white head and sticky lace down the glass. Aroma is of citrusy hops with some grapefruite and tangerine presence as well. Taste has good sweet caramel backbone followed by very stong hop bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours clear copper with a rocky finger high head with good retention and pillowy lacing on the glass.

Pine resin and a touch of earth. Sweet amber malt. Bready. Hops clearly dominant and straight forward.

Malt is crusty bread with a touch of caramel sweetness before the rest of the drink is dominated by hops. Pine resin dominant one dimensional and bitterness that claws at the tongue getting beneath the tastebuds.

Ideal body and carbonation with a bitter mouth coating that dries nicely leaving some residue. Alcohol well hidden. Very drinkable, dangerously so.

Lasting numbing bitterness and a pleasant pine resin burn. Stone offers a through thrashing of the palate with their signature pine resin/earthy hops. A readily available hophead staple.

22 oz bomber pours a slightly cloudy medium amber with huge head and lacing. Aroma is bready malt with citrus mangos, grapefruit and pine. Taste is wonderful citrus and pepper resinous hops - very nice blend of flavor and bittering hops. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth with a kick and dry finish. Drinkability on this one is fantastic - I need frequent reminders to slow down! A great example of a west coast IPA.
