Poured from a 22 oz into a tulip.
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip.
A - Golden copper. 4
N - Lots of tropical hop notes and bready malts. Also some pine and resin. Surprisingly balanced nose. 4
T - Not quite as balanced as the nose. Starts off with amazing tropical hop flavors of mango, pineapple and some orange. This moves to a nice amount of grapefruit, pine and resin. It finishes with a touch of sweet bready malts. This is an awesome West Coast Style IPA. 4.75
M - It has a nice medium-body but is still crisp and easy to drink. It also has that oily and sticky body that I love in IPAs that really puts it on the Pliny, Alpine and other world-class IPAs level. 4.5
Overall - This is a perfect example of a West Coast style IPA. The tropical hop notes combined with the pine and resin make this one an excellent offering. It's probably the best hoppy beer from Stone and one I hope they decide to make year-round, mainly because its a great value at $5.99. It's so close to the other great IPAs (Alpine, Pliny, Heady etc) but just not quite there. 4.5

Served in a flute, batch "by 4/01/13".
Appearance: golden amber with a very light hazy body. Head is subtle considering its off the tap maybe 1/3" off the body. This brew did settle nice and even with steady lacing.
Smell: aroma overload with grapefruit and hops that make your nostrils wish you could take this home.
Taste: extreme hops complimented with a bitterness overload that comes off very citrusy. I am absolutely indulging in the taste alone.
Mouth: medium carbonation, might come slightly light wish it was a little heavier but it's everlasting stickiness is incredible.
Overall: here at the bar enjoying one of the best "new" imperial IPAs I have had in a long time. Little expensive but honestly I have had so many DIPAs that this seems priceless. Salud!

First review: t'was (currently tipsy, felling pretentious) an excellent demonstration of flavor 'complexity'... Swish it in your mouth and taste the changes! This is one of those that changes with temperature, and has an evolving aftertaste. 6th batch was indeedly a treat; smelled and tasted herbal... Basil/rosemary/other garden thangs. I'm wondering if there is any legitimacy to the drink by date-or just newly minted marketing majors making a stamp on the craftbeer scene. I'm visiting the northeast this weekend, but wish it were available back in Lousiana where I'm working. Strong work Stone.
