While I am often critical of Stone (highly overrated in my opinion as a brewery), this is a solid beer. Not as overblown as some of their other IPA's.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Light in color. Light, slightly hazy yellow. 2 finger head, nice lacing.

S - Slightly Hoppy, pine, mild grapefruit, pineapple, malt, bready.

T - Very subtle all the way around. Piney, fruity, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, everything in this is very subtle and balanced.

M - Light body, carbonation is pretty prominent, drinkable, a bread dryness that is inviting for the next drink.

O - Given the style in mind, Stone knocks this out of the park. I'm use to heavier IPAs at this point and I had to keep reminding myself of that during this review. I really like their lineup and this is a great start to the world of craft beer. If you're ready to move up, give ruination a try maybe an Enjoy By IPA? Definitely a journey for the taste buds.
