22oz bottle poured into tasters - 12.21.12 version - thanks alex/cj
Pours a clear golden color with a thinner white head. Fades out fairly quickly into some bubbled film and spotty lacing on the glass.
Vibrant and pungent hoppy presence in the nose, driven by bitter grapefruit and resinous pine. Faint sweetness from caramel and fruit with a faint notion of a malt backbone. Light alcoholic punch.
Crushing bitter hoppiness right up front with an absolute avalanche of grapefruit and sticky pine. The hops dominate the profile from nearly top to bottom, only momentarily allowing for a brief notion of toasted grain/caramel malted backbone. Finishes bitter and dry with grapefruit followed by a boozy warmth.
Medium body, well carbonated, dry and sticky on the tongue. Stone makes some really tasty West coast style IPAs, but this one is easily the most expressive and flavorful without going completely off the rails. I'd drink this regularly if possible.
