At PJ's in Bethlehem

A: Thin head off white head. Golden orange with beautiful lacing all around the glass.

S: Pungent floral, citrus, pine hop. Very little malt, only enough to keep this beer honest. Just what you'd expect in a beautifully done IPA.

T: This beer tastes amazingly hoppy with a delicious bitterness. Just like the smell the taste is focused on citrus like grapefruit, also some pine, and a nice floral touch. Add the right amount of malt and it makes this hoppy beer absolutely tasty.

M: Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little resiny from the hops, and the carbonation is mild.

O: This beer is so good after a long day. It delivers on bitter and juicy citrus and pine hop flavors. I was glad to find this one on tap because I've had older bottles before that did not deliver anywhere close to the hop pungency this beer was designed to impart on its drinkers.

Poured to a goblet glass from a 12 oz bottle

A- crystal clear burnt orange, 1/2finger inch tight bubbled head, decent sticky lacing around the glass

S- pungent citrus up front on the nose, peaches, mango and papaya, stinky dank bud, oranges and grapefruit notes also found about, piny and grassy. classic west coast ipa

T- grapefruit and mango dominate, piny, grassy, lemon peel, citrus all around. Sugary and an aspriny bitter finish.

M- medium bodied and carbonation, sweet, bitter am dry.

O- great ipa, stone doesn't fuck around with their beers or their hops, and this beer just proves it.

Golden color with white head that lingers well. Lots of sticky lacing along sides of tulip.

Can smell the tangerine and grapefruit right after popping the top. This is how a IPA should smell.

Taste is mild sweet malt. Big punch of citrus right from the start. Tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, grass and pepper come through.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation.

Overall this is just about perfect.
