22 oz. bomber poured into tulip
(enjoy by 10/22/13 ... consumed on 9/21/13)

L: light orange ... yellow-gold; about 50/50 opaque with a standard American murkiness; huge fluffy head of white that turns a bit off-white as it disipates, about 1 1/3-inch thick that holds together like meringue, and it STICKS -- big stick and lacing

S: grapefruit; very green, piney ... not sure if it qualifies as "grassy" but you can smell GREEN

T: sweet! really nice first sip in which the sweetness overcomes the bitterness; after that, this thing is blended hops -- the full hop salad of very bitter grapefruit, little to no sweetness; occasional hint of the mango/tropical fruit sweetness from the hops, but generally leans toward grapefruit

F: solid, perhaps a bit slick but good

O: good hoppy american IPA but not remarkable ... not these days when every American craft brewery makes three versions of this style; that is not to say it's a bad brew -- far from it, it's just fine *and* readily available for a decent price, so when in doubt, Stone's IPA works well.
