look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A - light orange, pours a nice head and leaves lots of tracing on the glass

S - Pine, citrus, ya know that wonderful west coast IPA aroma

T - bold and bitter, but not overwhelmingly so

M - pleasant, smooth

Overall - I've had Stone IPA on several occasions, but this is the first time I've had it in quite a while. At first drink, believe it or not, I kinda felt that it tasted a little watery. But then I realized that my perception has been altered somewhat by my recent consumption of many bold high alcohol IPAs, porters and stouts. However, once I reached the bottom of the glass, I was enjoying this quite a bit, and was pleasantly reminded of my previous dalliances with this beer. Overall, this is a great beer. If you're looking for something more bold and daring, reach for the Ruination or Arrogant Bastard. But if you're craving something more drinkable, less bitter, and, dare I say, sessionable, go with the IPA!

A: Light orange in color, clear body, bone white head on top.

S: Very piney with some grapefruit and orange rind to be found as well.

T: Obviously a West Coast IPA. Big piney and resinous hop punch with a sizeable and enjoyable bitterness. As you drink more you can start to pick up delicious flavors of pineapple, grapefruit and bitter grapefruit peel, and slight hints of orange.

M: Nice body, soft feel with good carbonation, and slightly slick and oily. Goes down very easy for a nearly 7%, high IBU beer.

O: Perhaps the quintessential West Coast IPA and definitely one of my new favorite IPAs overall (if not THE favorite). If it wasn't for the high price being this far from Cali, I would certainly buy it on a more regular basis.
