look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy golden yellow with two-finger, white, foamy and creamy head that lasted several minutes. Nice lacing.

S: Pine hops and tropical fruit. Delicious.

T: Moderate sweetness and solid hop bitterness. Grapefruit and citrus. Dominating bitterness, which a touch of toasted malt late in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp and smooth. Slightly warm going down.

O: This is so good. The beer looks phenomenal, smells delicious, and tastes as good as it smells. And, it feels perfectly smooth too. I love this beer.

Without doubt one of my favorite beers ever. Just hoppy enough to give it some bite, balanced by sufficient malt to give it the sweetness it needs to balance the bitterness of the hops. Smooth, creamy, hoppy, piney, citrusy, resinous, all perfectly balanced. Stone doesn't seem to make a bad beer. Not the overwhelming hops of Ruination, not too much malt to make it too sweet. Simply perfect. If you have any friends who insist Bud Light is good beer, given them a glass of this and watch the reaction.
