The beer pours in beautiful hazy gold orange color with a one finger head. Very cloudy.

The aroma is great. Rich juicy orange, freshly squeezed grapefruit. There’s a breadiness there as well along with pine.

The taste is pretty spot on. It hits you immediately with a gentle bitterness throughout. The aftertaste isn’t too cloying, but it’s of bitterness like a grapefruit pit, resin, and pine. The flavor is of dried out grapefruit. There’s an easing of bready malts that cleans up this beer however.

The finish is not as offensive as many Double IPAs out there. It’s ridiculously dry, but it doesn’t have this awkward cloying feeling. It’s an enjoyable bitterness that tastes natural of grapefruit pit and lingers lightly.

This is not as big of a hop bomb as Enjoy By, but I saw that as both a compliment and hit. For Stone beers, definitely try out Enjoy By, but on the regular, I would definitely prefer this. It’s so well balanced. One of the best Double IPAs out there.
