Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 12.27.13.

A: See through amber. Slight foamy head.

S: Pine, although a bit subdued. Malt is more detectable than other APAs.

T: Malt, with more subtle pine and citrus.

M: Crisp.

O: The strong malt presence is more like an amber ale. It does have a bitter aftertaste, but it's good. I wasn't wowed by this one, which is surprising since I love Ruination and Stone IPA.

Dark amber, tan head. Not a fan of the mild body mixed with cough syrup taste. Not the worst beer I've ever had, it's a stone... But wouldn't order it again

12 oz bottle consumed on BB date.
Pours clear, dark amber, with a moderate amount of carbonation bubbles rising to a durable,bone-colored head.
Aroma: some malt, more floral/herbal hops.
Flavor: follows smell. More medium malt, and perhaps more hops, than the average APA.
