12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A - light orange, pours a nice head and leaves lots of tracing on the glass
S - Pine, citrus, ya know that wonderful west coast IPA aroma
T - bold and bitter, but not overwhelmingly so
M - pleasant, smooth
Overall - I've had Stone IPA on several occasions, but this is the first time I've had it in quite a while. At first drink, believe it or not, I kinda felt that it tasted a little watery. But then I realized that my perception has been altered somewhat by my recent consumption of many bold high alcohol IPAs, porters and stouts. However, once I reached the bottom of the glass, I was enjoying this quite a bit, and was pleasantly reminded of my previous dalliances with this beer. Overall, this is a great beer. If you're looking for something more bold and daring, reach for the Ruination or Arrogant Bastard. But if you're craving something more drinkable, less bitter, and, dare I say, sessionable, go with the IPA!
