This beer pours a light orange haze with a slight copper hue depending on the lighting. Two finger head thats fairly thick, especially for an IPA, that clings to the glass till the end.
Smells of strong hops and a grassy, piney, and skunky undertone. With a hint of what I can only think of is some type of melon with a little citrus. Mouth watering because I know whats in store.
Initial taste is a very hoppy one with a good malty following that
carries a citrus mix the whole way though. Bitter bite lingers to remind you this is a stone brew. Good consistency, you know you've had some good beer minutes later. Hop bitterness lingers.
Drinkability depends. Six pack can easily be drank by one throughout a session, but it's nice to follow up a few of these with Stones Ruination IPA a true liquid poem.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
