4/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Paid $1.69 for a 12oz. bottle

The appearence looks pretty average on the start with the lager-colored base and small white head, but the beautiful lacing during the drink was quite a nice sight. The aroma was really charming in this one; aromatic blend fruity-lemony and sweetness poured in a pint glass, one of the best smells I've ever had.

The taste is a lot of fruits, mainly acidic fruits also that sweetness is there too, it kind of feels like a little-mixed drink is in the bottle; quite interesting! The mouthfeel is nice on the palette, especially at a 6.9% ABV and the drinkability isn't as high, because it is that fruity, where more probably isn't better.

Final Thought: This was my first IPA ever, my first Stone brew ever; and it won't be the last... ever....
