I didn't create the BA entry, so don't blame me for the retarded title.
A pint enjoyed on tap at stone. Appears pellucid dark orange with a huge frothy white head. Good retention. Looks great. The aroma is expressive, with strong notes of grapefruit, orange, and resinous pine. Light malt presence, but hops are the main attraction. Great aroma. Flavor is moderately bitter grapefruit and pine with a touch of malt. A lot of flavor and an appropriate abv make this a perfect session ale. Recommended! Sticky, dry mouthfeel. The pinnacle of refreshment on a day like this. I prefer Even Keel, but this is quite good and my favorite of the Stone Collaborations thus far. Drink this one fresh...I hope you know this.
Serving type: on-tap
