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.

This is a good one for hops lovers. Super hoppy, but flavorful. The smell got me excited to take my first sip. Not perfect overall, but damn close for what you pay.

Similar taste to most Stone brews. It was very heavy and full filling
