A: Beautiful head, pours golden/orange hue. Lacing is very nice & carbonation appears very lively. She looks like she's ready to go!
S: Hops, floral, also getting something sweet (maybe honey?). All in all, a nice smelling brew.
T: Wow, this is one fine tasting brew. Very smooth yet complex on the tongue. As expected, hops dominate (a good thing!!), but with some sweet tastes. A sweet grapefruit would be a good way to describe the overall taste.
M: Perfectly carbonated, very smooth; warm but no overpowering alcohol feel. Perfect on the palate.
D: This is a no-brainer drink anytime brew from the guys @ Stone. Not as many complex flavors as say Ruination, but at 1/2 the price, I'm on my way to get more!!

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.
Serving type: on-tap
