a- Poured this beauty into a tulip glass. Slight haze with a nice light honey color. It looks great in this glass and has excellent lacing.

s- You definetly can smell those centennial hops in there. A big citrus and floral nose coming through. Oranges and grapefuit with a touch of pine.

t- The taste is very similar to the smell. You get a good bitterness upfront with a huge citrus blast. Then you taste the malt, which is slight. It has a touch of graineness in a good way. Then finishes super dry, which i love in an ipa.

m- The mouthfeel is great in this beer. It coats your mouth enough to enjoy the malts, but then finishing dry to make it crisp and refeshing.

o- This is an excellent beer for a true hophead. It showcases all the aspects of a great american ipa. A highly recommended beer.

My first Stone product. Run down in Ohio by my pal John Neil. Thanks!

Gorgeous, viscous, brilliant amber liquid. Super rich, concentrated ripe grain aromas are overcome by deliriously fresh, sticky hop fragrances. The greens lean toward the "lemonade" side of the spectrum. Overt nose on this one.
Fluffy on the palate. Perfect carbonation here. Intense flavors of sheep's milk ricotta, lemon, egg pastries, heavily toasted, and graphite dust...maybe even a little charcoal. Edgy, forward and commanding. Good entertaining beer. True to its genre. Maybe one of the best.

Fantastic beer! One of the best IPAs I've ever had - I think I only like the Stone Ruination more. Everything here is top-notch - smells great, tastes even better, and its never too strong or too hoppy. Stone may be my favorite brewer - I need to try their Imperial Stout to be sure. Like all Stone beers, this IPA is highly recommended!
