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

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy golden amber color with a finger of off white head. The head leaves a layer on top of the pour and some lacing.

Smell: Juicy citrus notes up front. The hops remind me of citrus peel along with some pine. There is an overall sweetness as well.

Taste: Thank goodness, it taste a lot like it smells. Hoppy right off the bat with a nice sweetness to balance things out. Juicy citrus peel hops along with some pine needles. The finish is rather bitter and a bit peppery.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with lots of tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: A very good IPA from Stone. I enjoy this beer and will have more in the future.
