Pour is golden with a modest touch of amber. A medium to thin head reduces at a quick pace to leave sticky lace coating the glass. The nose is robust and smells of hop and touches of citrus and earthy grasses and pine abound. Bitter hops greet the pallet as do a moderate but appreciated malt under current. This IPA is really quite gentle on the tongue which makes it quite easy to enjoy more than one. A nice dry finish rounds out this quality beer.

The nose is of the piney and forest like hops I've come to know and love on the west coast.

Taste keeps the hop nose very well but with a huge malt characteristic followed by a very bitter end. Honestly too much of an off putting bitterness at the finish. I can take bitter all day but this was not exactly in the right direction, and it's surprising because Stone always has a good malt backbone to balance things out.

It's still a very good IPA but of course Enjoy By and Ruination are a bit better in every way.

12 oz Bottle.Very very solid beer.Ipa at a respectable 6.9 abv.Of course not as good as say a Ruination from Stone but still a solid semi functional brew.I use the term functional very loosely because if you drink to many of these brews they can easily get a way from you.Great flavor as you would expect from Stone and it seems like it`s in my frig all the time meaning it`s easy to find. I do love Stone beers.
