I was skeptical of this IPA but found it very enjoyable. Definitely a bright citrus IPA, this is a great choice for the price!

This beer is a medium cloudy honey color in the glass, but without much of a head. It smells of citrus, alcohol, hops, and apricot. It's a pleasant, fresh smell. It tastes crisp and properly-balanced in terms of hops and fades to a sweet flavor alluding to the complex makeup. It's pretty dense in mouthfeel with good carbonation. This is a good beer, and nicely exemplifies this style.

the head is foamy, off-white and quite persistent

aromas- the nose is bright with ample grassy hops with citrus undertones. there is also a suprising amount of malt discernible behind the hops which show as carmel and toffee notes.

taste- it's juicy and light with some graininess across the midpalate. Hop bitterness coats the palate with delicious tart citrus and fresh cut grass... incredible green freshness about this beer.

mouthfeel- suprisingly light and refreshing for a beer of this strength. find the texture somewhat wanting..

drinkability- this is a total joy to drink. as a hophead, i am rarely so endulged. not a hurtfully bitter beer, the hops are noticed in their flavor contribution, and the freshness is hard to beat. i'm also pleased to actually taste the malt, and not the alcohol (in excess anyway.) overall, well crafted and delicious!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Pint glass.

Apperance- Cloudy Orange color, with good head retention and good lacing

Smell- Big citrus hop smell and some grapefruit.

Taste, Mouthfeel- Good balanced biterness and hop flavor, Medium body and carb

Drinkability- A hugely drinkablle beer, i will definately buy this beer again.

The long sought-after answer to my beloved Lagunitas IPA that I sadly can't get down here!

Just got a 22oz bottle at my local HEB, this beer
has a ton of flavour and hops which isn't for all
of us, but if you like good beer + don't mind the
extra alcohol (6.9%) I highly recommend this one!
Probably too strong for a session beer but if you
are having one or two it will satisfy most any1's
taste buds. Cool bottle too.

Great IPA. Pours a nice hazy golden amber with a thick, fluffy, fine-bubbled head that laces the glass nicely as I drink. Aroma is hoppy with a hint of pine to it.. Flavor is rich and very hoppy, pleasantly bitter and pineish with just a touch of caramel sweetness. Finish is edgy and lively. A nice hoppy beer.

Excellent IPA. I have to place it up there with 90 Minute (Dogfish Head) even though 90 Minute is a DIPA. Love the bitters, love the aroma. For me it loses to 90 Minute on palate and finish. I think the higher alcohol content gives 90 Minute the fullness on the palate that the thinner Stone IPA just can't do. But the higher carbonation of the Stone IPA gives adds a touch to keep it close.
