My first Stone beer from the Brewdog Online Shop, so it might not be the freshest bottle.
A nice orange golden, colour with a one finger frothy white head. I can't see any carbonation in this beer.
Smell is very sweet and I get orange, citrius, pine and tropical fruits... awesome that is how a IPA should smell!
Taste is a short fruity sweetness closely follwed by a big piney hop presence that lingers on your palate.. I quess until the next morning ;) I have to admit I like my IPA more balanced. This is just pure hop bitterness, with almost no malts to back it up. If you are a hop head go for it, if not stay with the more balanced East Coast IPAs

A: Pours our a clear golden amber color. A bountiful three fingers of off white head. Very good retention and lacing.
S: Grapefruit, pine, slight resiny smell, and some floral notes. As it warms, a bit of tropical fruitiness comes out.
T: Very similar to the smell. A little bit on the bitter side for my tastes but balance could be spot on for some real hopheads.
M: Medium body that is just a little sticky but still pretty crisp. Medium carbonation.
O: A true west coast IPA. I'm more of an east coast style guy, but I have to respect the quality of this beer. A must try for any IPA drinker.
