12oz bottle poured into New Belgium Globe glass
A - clear, amber/yellowish color. Mostly clear with a slight haze. Pours with a small clean head. Small in size, it vanishes quickly. Small persistent pool of foam in the middle (thanks to the glass). Very light lacing early.
S - piney w/ slight citrus undertones. Not overwhelming but very spot on for the style.
T - tastes like it smells. Still amazed I hadn't tried this touchStone beer from Stone (bad pun intended). Perfect amount of hops for an IPA and balanced with the alcohol. Finishes clean and refreshing. One drink begs another and another.
M - light on the palate and finishes clean. Smooth throughout. Crisp.
O - Stone is a great brewery and that reputation is made through their perennial beers like this one. An IPA very true to the style. Will definitely be a go to beer for me from now on. Still prefer the IIPA but this is a fantastic IPA.
