Light copper color and completely see-through. Big head on the pour which lasts forever and coats the glass in lacing.

Aggressive pine-like, grapefruit and soapy hop qualities in the nose. Just a tad of honey sweetness.

Mild bready malt flavor with a hint of honey. Make way for the hop bomb which attacks your palate with an unrelenting onslaught of grapefruit, lemon rind, soap and sharp pine needles. Very pungent and definitely a west coast brew. There's a touch of juicy melon to balance the bitterness but it doesn't go very far.

Medium bodied and well carbonated with a dry finish.

Good DIPA. True to the style. A bit unbalanced though.

Poured from 22ox bomber into Stone pint glass

A - a cloudy/hazy dark golden color. medium to thick 2" inch head. thickk lacing down the sides as you drink it

S - Pine and citrus hope come through huge here. Grapefruit. a little bit of booze in the scent as well

T - Lemony hops come through first backed by some slight pine and grapefruit flavors. A sweet malty background as well.

M - Not too heavy, especially for a DIPA. good carb and nice stickness to it which allows the flavor to linger in your mouth a little

Overall - A great overall beer by Stone. Love the complex hop combinations they use on this one.
