4/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a medium amber with a significant and persistant head in a standard pint glass. You need to be patient if you need to wait for the head to finally settle.

S: Spicy hops dominate the aroma. There is some fruit sweetness present as well.

T: As strong as the hops are in the nose, it's nowhere near as strong it tastes. It's surprisingly hoppy, even for an IPA. While there's a mild malt backbone, it's still a tad unbalanced... not a bad thing.

M: Not as thick as a DIPA, it's still pretty thick for an IPA.

D: I doubt I could have more than two of these. The tastebuds get a real workout with this beer.

Stone IPA is a fine example of the style. It may not be at the top of my list for IPAs, but it's close.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served from 22 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.

A - Straw-colored, slightly hazy body. The head is thick and white. This is the way an IPA should look!

S - Orange, grass and spring flowers. Just a hint of pine and hemp.

T - Much like the smell, but more pungent. The orange and floral notes work in perfect harmony, with the semi-sweet crackery malt keeping everything in rhythm. The finish has more hoppy flavors and some assertive, but refreshing, bitterness.

M - A smooth mouthfeel to go with a medium body. Carbonation is near perfect.

O - A fantastic IPA. When enjoyed fresh, it's one of the best widely-distributed single IPAs around. If the six-pack weren't $12, this would be my go-to beer without a doubt.
