Appearance - Pours a hazy golden color with a slight orange hue. The head sits 3-fingers thick before settling down to a fine, sticky lace.
Smell - Floral and classic Stone grapefruit-like citrus hops dominant the aroma.
Taste - A hoppy, bitter grapefruit flavor dominates throughout, with subdued notes of sweet malt peaking through from time to time. A bit of orange peaks through as well. Simple and clean, but very tasty.
Mouthfeel - There's just enough malt to give this IPA some body, and the carbonation is right about where it should be.
Overall - There's nothing complex about this IPA, but it's clean and it catches the taste buds just right. I'm a big grapefruit guy, so the flavors in this beer are right up my alley. One of my favorite IPA's; I like it better than their (Stone) Ruination.

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.
