12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener glass.
A - Very sharp looking beer. A quite dark golden amber with lot's of carbonation visible. Plenty of bubles coming up for the duration of the pour. Very thick white head, which stuck around for a while, morphed into some cool shapes, and left a good amount of residuals.
S - Like a light IPA. Hops, but not too powerful. Smelled nice, just not a ton going on. Maybe a hint of grapefruit, too.
T - Interesting. As was the case with the aroma, tasted more like a light IPA than an Amber/Red Ale. Didn't notice much malt, but some general frutiness was present. Hops flavor intensified in the aftertaste. Very pleasant.
F - One of the beers strongest features. Very light and crisp feeling with a strong aftertaste. No bloating or heavy feeling. A good beer to drink on the golf course or in any instance when you're going to have more than a couple.
O - Not my favorite Stone brew, but it's still a very good beer. A perfect beer for anyone who likes the taste of hops, but doesn't enjoy the bitterness and explosion of a ton of hops. I do enjoy beers like that, but there are times when I want a lighter, more crisp tasting hoppy beer, and this beer does the trick. Highly recommended.

Pours coppery to reddish copper with a substantial 2 1/2 finger off white head that becomes chunky as it recedes, leaving awesome thick, sticky lacing.
Piney with citrus, especially, overripe citrus, and rich caramel malts.
Citrusy tart, but not totally dry. Just a touch of sweetness. Caramel malts and bitter hops linger on the tongue.
Medium full bodied. Peppery and crisp. Lightly syrupy but drying on the tongue, and a light burn in the throat.
This beer has a lighter ABV than any beer I've had from Stone, but it still packs a flavor punch. A good summer offering, in my opinion, even with it's thicker body.
