Pours a golden yellow color with 3 fingers of creamy head. The floral hop aroma is noticeable without even lifting the glass to my nose. Upon closer smell, there is a lush bouquet of floral, lemon and grapefruit hops. Hop bitterness right off the bat over a sweet malt backbone leading to a very bitter, slightly oily finish that is quite lingering. Body is medium and drinkability is OK, hurt by a bitterness that boarders on harsh. I know that's Stone's thang, but I think this would be an exceptional IPA if they toned down the bitterness just a touch.
