4.55/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - pours something like a dark cadmium orange deep, very cloudy, with a white head that quickly dissipates, leaving substantial lacing.

S - wow. just from pouring I could easily smell the delicious bitterness of the hops. I am also picking some spicy esters behind the over powering hops.

T - one hardly notices the near 7% abv with this smooth and crisp brew. The smell and taste of hops combine together in the drinking experience (assuming you are not congested) to make something wonderfully uplifting for the palate, with a bitter, and then later spicy aftertaste

MF&D - a full feel to this beer, not as thick as a grade A syrup, but far from water; it lets you know you are drinking something good. the slight cripy-ness to the carbonation makes me (and even my mother!) coming back for more, very smooth and more than a pleasure to drink.

I wish I wasn't reviewing the last bottle of my 6-pack!

3.99/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured bottle into glass. 6/12/14 Freshness date. 6.9% abv.

Appearance- Pours a bright medium orange amber. Very clear. Fluffy two finger head that hangs around.

Smell- Tropical notes of orange and pineapple. Quite floral as well.

Taste- Pine and grass notes up front blending quickly into a biscuit malt flavor. The earthy hop finish is pronounced. The bitterness lasts awile for a dry hop wrap up.

Mouthfeel- Slick and moderate in body. Not thin. Ample carbonation.

Overall- A basic IPA that is solid. Not out of this world but a fine creation of the style indeed. The quality Stone puts into their beers is a reflection to this flagship IPA of theirs.
