Poured in to a tulip. 1/2 finger, tan head. Clear, copper colored body. Good lacing.
Aroma had some good malty presence, mild sweetness with light caramel. Good amount of lemony and citrus aromas.
Taste was big lemon flavor up front, followed with a mildy spicey taste. Good amounts of maltyness along with a slight, chewy sweetness. Light caramel and biscuity flavor. Finish had loans of lemon flavor again, slight hop harshness. Good amounts of tropical and citrus flavor. Mildly lingering bitterness. Slight signs of heat.
Mouthfeel was medium body, medium/high carb and a slightly chewy sweetness that finishes dry.
Overall I thought was a good DIPA. Big hop flavor with big malt profile. Hops and lemon dominate, but was still very enjoyable.

08/22/12 On tap. To me most IPAs are too aggressive. This an exception. It's well balanced as to it's bitterness & the respectable hoppyness. It got a kick with a little burn. Appears to be brewed with me in mind and not the brewers bragging rights. Sue me, but I'll say it anyway...it's got great grownup characteristics.

4.48/5 rDev +17.6%

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 10 % and there is a nice discretion of the beer.
Appearance: The beer has a deep honey amber color with a slight haze. It builds a tall just off white head on top which hangs on well and clings to the glass making lots of cool lacing.
Smell: The aroma is full of loads of bright lemony citrus and well...hops. (Classic Stone IPA)
Taste / Palate: The flavor is full of hops from start to finish. First up are the citrus and tropical notes with a spicy malty bready base. This fades into herbal and pine like hop notes with slow fading bitterness in the finish.
Notes: Hang on to the hops roller coaster its going to be a bitter good ride.
