P: A Stone IPA glass from the brewery, Stone IPA tap handle, just tapped from my home beer fridge, aahhhh, a half barrel for summer
A: Light orange color, thick, sticky head leaving rings
S: Hop heavan, oily floral and bursting, they must have dry hopped the hell out of this
T: Sweet at the tip and then bitter all the way, great hop aftertaste lingers. A great balance of malt and hop.
Mouthfeel: Nice, not too thick to drink in summer, not too watery. Very nice.
Drinkability: I could drink this all day (and night).
Notes: By far one of the best if not the best regular IPA in the land. It took 2 weeks to get the keg from CA to PA, but well worth the wait.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle into pint glass. Enjoy by 9/9/14
re-reviewed from 11/5/11, coz I like to think I know more now. (Jury still out on that)
Golden yellow with a small white head. Good carbonation & lacing.
Not getting much of anything on the nose.
Taste was a very good blending of the hops and malt, just enough of a hop bite to let you know it's there, with a sweet malt wash throughout the mouth.
Mouth was medium with a persisting sour bitterness on the back of the mouth.
Overall, a good and tasty IPA

A: hmmm. Nice head, with decent retention. Pristine copper to bronze color, with respectable lacing.
S: big hop aroma. The nose is dry and forcasts the hoppiness to come. Not very floral or piney, or even citrus, but full of hops nonetheless.a little alcohol.
T: dry as the sahara desert. No sweet maltiness here. The hoppiness and bitterness is driving this bus and we're along for the ride. Grass, pine, and pith are at the forefront, with some spices in the rear, to bring it all home. This is an IP
A to please those that love IPAs.
M: light to medium, lingering, with a medium carbonation.
O: dry, bitter, and full of hoppy charachter that is quintessential of the style, without being a characiture. This is good to great, but not exceptional.
