A - Nice clean orange/brown color - good head when poured aggressively, but didn't last long.

S - Nice hop-full smell - more pine than citrus, slight yeast and alcohol notes.

T - Sweet up front - earthy, piney, bitter, and dry finish.

O - Good IPA., but I rate it a bit low compared to the average on this one. Love Stone and Love IPA's, but this and some of their other beers, just fall short with me for some reason. I plan to give it another try to see if my taste buds are just not quite on today.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into oskar blues pint glass.
Pours a brite gold color with an inch of rocky bone white head. Aroma, well, there isn't much going on here. Faint malt scent, muted pine hops. Hope this gets better. Flavor follows the scents, muddled hops, muted malt presence. Nice mouthfeel, I'm sure these fine bubbles would help scrub the bitterness from my pallate... if there was any. Overall, I've had american pale ales that blow this beer out of the water. I will add a caveat to this review, I started my night out with alpha king and had this beer right after eating some crackers to "cleanse" my pallate. I also expected an ipa to bring more to the party than it little brother. I will be revisiting this beer, but my initial impression is that stone may be needing a facelift with this brew.
