Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A – Appears hazy golden-yellow, with a small one-finger head of white soapy bubbles. Lacing clings for a moment and then disappears almost instantly.
S – Earthy resinous hops, and unbaked dough. Overall odor is medium strength.
T – Rich taste of grapefruit, orange, pine, and lemongrass. Malt backbone in the mid-palate has a delightful warm butterscotch character. Bittering finish of equal parts grass hop and earthy hop which carries for an extremely long time. Delicious!
M – Medium bodied with sharp carbonation. Finishes dry. Perfect feel for the flavor elements.
O – A stellar IPA. Don’t let the mild looks and aroma fool you; this one is a taste titan. And here this is only Stone’s “normal” IPA. Proof that an IPA doesnt have to be “Black”, “Double” or “Imperial” to be an outstanding beer.
