Poured a 12oz bottle into my OMB tulip. Enjoy by 9-23-13 written on the neck.

A - Pours a clear, amber color with a slight haze. A small head vanishes quickly leaving a small touch of foam in the middle of the glass. Very light lacing holds on tightly.

S - Touch of pine with slight citrus undertones chiming in. Not too overwhelming. I actually expected some more punch from their flagship IPA.

T - Tastes much better than it smells. Perfect amount of hops for an IPA and malt backbone. I'm also picking up some grapefruit rind, ground black pepper and caramel. The alcohol at 7% is pretty masked.

M - Finishes pretty clean and is refreshingly light on the palate, which I don't typically experience with Stone beers. I love how easy this goes down.

O - Stone has created yet another excellent example of a "west coast" IPA. It's very drinkable and very true to the style. I wish I had another.
