22 oz. bomber poured into tulip
(enjoy by 10/22/13 ... consumed on 9/21/13)
L: light orange ... yellow-gold; about 50/50 opaque with a standard American murkiness; huge fluffy head of white that turns a bit off-white as it disipates, about 1 1/3-inch thick that holds together like meringue, and it STICKS -- big stick and lacing
S: grapefruit; very green, piney ... not sure if it qualifies as "grassy" but you can smell GREEN
T: sweet! really nice first sip in which the sweetness overcomes the bitterness; after that, this thing is blended hops -- the full hop salad of very bitter grapefruit, little to no sweetness; occasional hint of the mango/tropical fruit sweetness from the hops, but generally leans toward grapefruit
F: solid, perhaps a bit slick but good
O: good hoppy american IPA but not remarkable ... not these days when every American craft brewery makes three versions of this style; that is not to say it's a bad brew -- far from it, it's just fine *and* readily available for a decent price, so when in doubt, Stone's IPA works well.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
