DATE TASTED: October 2, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION: the Browns on primetime TV--a chance at 3-2!...APPEARANCE: orange-peach hazy body supports a thick crunchy near-white head; beautiful display of bubbles with cirrus lacing... AROMA: as remembered, this IPA slams a pinecone of citrus orange peel up the nostrils, with a bit of apple too...PALATE: full-bodied, immersing the tongue in a bitter bath of effervescence; aggressively active in its aftertaste...TASTE: a crushing hops avalanche--alcohol is well hidden but warming--and enough malt to balance (?!) the mad mix-- a true feat...OVERALL: spending a summer discussing the best IPAs with a few colleagues made me want to review a few from the hallowed halls, and one of the first true west coast gems I indulged in was this label-less intimidator...Stone delivers the Cali attitude befitting its gargoyled mascot...
