Excellent nose ..very citrusy and clean. malts integrated but not pushy. overall hop dominated. very nice summer beer, it cools you off. lingering chewy pine aftertaste but not palate wrecking easy to drink. high acidity from hops. alcohol well hidden at 6.9% abv. nice head until the end. good pub or outdoor beer; only improves as it heats up.

Sometimes I think the west coasters are crazy. Silly amounts of suds on the pour, leaves a bubble bath all over the snifter as I drink.

The intense pine/grapefruit nose and flavor are what I've come to expect from West Coast manifestations of IPA, especially from Stone. Peach and mango became so clear to me in a second serving! It's definitely not old world! Good lord, this stuff is insanely drinkable too. One could get into a lot of trouble. Nice full body and only a slight lingering grapefruit peel/bitterness. I could session this gargoyle!!!

Okay, not really "session" . . . that would be a very bad idea, at 6.9% and not really being a session beer in the slightest, no, I wouldn't . . . but still could drink a few without blowing out the old palate!
