Poured into a tulip.
A: A striking amber body, clean and clear, gives a vibrant impression right away. A rocky white head unfortunately leaves us very quickly but is nice enough to leave behind some beautiful lacing.
S: There are some subtleties tot his aroma I can't quite make out beneath the surface of your standard IPA scents: hops, citrus, pine. Maybe a faint malt or some more citrus is the responsible party, rounding out this scent. Though I wish it was a bit stronger.
T: Let it rest on your tongue. You'll detect beautiful citrus and malts that compliment the hops and pine very well. But as soon as you swallow, be prepared for an onslaught of hops. True to the Stone ethic, it's an intense taste, not for the faint of heart.
M: Very well carbonated and given an appropriate medium body, the feel is vibrant and robust.
O: A great sipping beer that grabs you and doesn't let go. It demands your attention and rewards you for it. Subtlety behind intense flavor.
