look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured bottle into glass. 6/12/14 Freshness date. 6.9% abv.

Appearance- Pours a bright medium orange amber. Very clear. Fluffy two finger head that hangs around.

Smell- Tropical notes of orange and pineapple. Quite floral as well.

Taste- Pine and grass notes up front blending quickly into a biscuit malt flavor. The earthy hop finish is pronounced. The bitterness lasts awile for a dry hop wrap up.

Mouthfeel- Slick and moderate in body. Not thin. Ample carbonation.

Overall- A basic IPA that is solid. Not out of this world but a fine creation of the style indeed. The quality Stone puts into their beers is a reflection to this flagship IPA of theirs.

Stone IPA 6 pk bottles $10.99(OH)

12 oz brown painted label bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. Fresh by date printed in yellow just below the neck.

pours a dark gold, light amber color. A three finger thick peach white head that lingers for a while. gives way to impressive spiderweb lacing all over the bulb of the glass.

The aroma is that of an IPA. Nice and strong citrus up front. strong grapefruits, a nice lemon tang, followed by a slight piney smell.

Taste follows the nose. A nice citrus grapefruit taste at first, followed by a big hoppy flavor, finishes with a nice piney surrounding that is slightly bitter.

the mouth feel is rather light for an IPA. I have no complaints though, all the tastes cling to your mouth. A medium body IPA. At the end a piney bitterness lingers.

Overall a great IPA however i have had just as good or better for cheaper. Commodore Perry is still my number one go to IPA. Would I buy this again? Probably not. It's not that this IPA is not good. It's just that it's over priced. Commodore Perry is 7.5% ABV, two bucks cheaper and is just as good if not better.
