In my opinion, this beer is not as good as it's stronger counterpart double IPA (Stone Ruination) which is definitely one of the best in its category.
With that said, this IPA is still a great beer that is worth a try. It still has a great hoppy taste and is not too bitter. I have definitely had better IPA's, but that does not mean this is not a good one.
However, if you are a "hop-head" and really want to see what Stone is about, I would recommend the Ruination IPA. Otherwise, this is one of many good IPA's available in this country, and though it is well-brewed, it is not special to set it apart from any of the other good ones.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
