12 oz bottle into a pint glass
A - Amber with a bit of a haze, 1/2 finger head with excellent lacing down to the last sip.
S - Piney aroma with a little sweetness in the background
T - still being an amateur, I tried this when it was a little too cold and got mostly a bitter hops bite with a malty backing character. As I made my way through, I let it sit and warm up and the fruit flavors come out. This has a pine hop bite up front even as it warms, but a orange/lemon flavor appears and finishes with a malt back.
M - A good beer, a little more body than other IPA's I have tried, and I like that.
O - As it warmed, the character of the beer comes out, I really enjoyed the Stone IPA, I wish there was a little more fruit flavor, but overall a very good IPA
