Served in 10oz goblet. Poured a very attractive, lightly hazy, orange-gold color with over a half-inch of just off-white head that had good retention and moderate lacing.
The aroma had a lot of citrus notes in the front, some soft malts underneath, and a slight bit of pine at the back. On the tongue, the bee was pretty similar, citrus and pine hops, maybe with a hint of floral too, and the flavors were nicely soft, not obnoxiously bold. The beer was surprisingly well balanced, not one of Stone's strong suits, and had a bit of a lingering bitter finish.
The body was fuller than typical, while being very smooth for the style, and had a very dry finish. Drinkability was excellent, if I didn't have to go to work, I would have had a couple more. Overall, a very good beer. A must try if you see it.
