4.5/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: pours a somewhat hazy golden orange hue with a little bit off white head which recedes to a small pool that sticks around for awhile
S: A lot of citrus with this one, mostly some grapefruit, a hint of pine and just a dash of herbal spicyness. Slightly sweet from the malts but mostly as assault of hop essence.
T: Grapefruit mostly with a bit of mintyness/menthol, some sweetness from the malt shines through as well. Lingering grapefruit aftertaste
M: smooth mouthfeel with good carbonation. Not watery at all and not excessively thick. A bit drying initially after the swallow but quickly turns juicy.
O: A top tier IPA from Stone Brewing Co. An excellent example of the style and a well done beer.

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.
