12oz bottle into tulip glass.

A - Bright clear amber with a thick white head.

S - Pleasant hop aroma. Pine, tropical fruit, spicy hops.

T - Strong hop flavor and bitterness. Piney, spicy, and herbal hops. Delicious. Bready caramel malt lends a bit of sweetness.

M - Smooth, crisp, medium bodied. Somewhat creamy.

O - An all around exceptional IPA. The hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness level are all quite pleasing.

Poured a gorgeous cloudy rich golden color with a slight orange tint and a thin cap of white foam. A very nice looking body, but a slightly disappointing head. Scents of pine resin, lemon zest, melon, earthy hops and a faint hint of biscuit on the finish. A nice overall aroma profile that is very hop forward. Flavor begins highly bitter with strong notes of pine resin and citrus peel, with a little hint of pale malt. This moves into a fairly bitter middle with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel and pith, some floral and earthy hop flavors and hints of alcohol. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel and a faint hint of biscuit-like malt. Aftertaste is dry with Nora of pine resin and grapefruit peel, with a faint grainy flavor. There is also a very mild, though present, pale malt backbone that barely balances the bitter hop flavors. A good IPA flavor profile that fits the classic West Coast mold. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with resinous, oily slick feel with medium-low carbonation. A nice mouthfeel that keeps the overall impression light and easy to drink. Overall this is a classic example of a West Coast IPA. It doesn't do anything new or experimental, but it does provide a wonderfully hoppy and refreshing drinking experience and highlights the general strengths of Stone's recipes and brewers. Quite the nice core offering and highly recommended.
