Poured from 22oz. Purchased in Pasadena a week ago. I drink alone. Had this one several times before, finally reviewing.

A: Pours a beautiful, slightly hazy golden straw color with a full, fluffy white head. Lacing is minimal, but a very good-looking beer nonetheless.

S: Big blast of resinous pine, mango, unripe peach, some vegetal hops. Malt is only present upon searching for it, with a slightly sweet toffee note.

T: Follows the nose well, but with the vegetal hops slightly more prominent. You can definitely taste the 100+IBU on this beer, the battering hops are potent and plenty. Again, the malts are very subdued and hardly present. 

M: Clean and sharp, the hops bite into the tongue fiercely. There is no denying the intent with this beer, it is in-your-face hops from start to finish. Bitterness is substantial, however not overwhelming, despite the high IBU. Alcohol is virtually nonexistent.

O: This is the epitome of a west coast IPA in it's clean but brutal hop assault. A very well made, clean and powerful IPA that is not for those new to the style or craft. I am impressed that Stone can make this beer on such a grand scale and still have it present so well. Not perfect, but fairly close.
