I first had this as a single 12 ounce bottle sometime awhile ago. It pours a golden orange with a bright white head. There is usually sediment and it’s always a bit cloudy. The lacing usually doesn't hang around very long. The nose is orange and lemon, and naturally, a hop bomb. Floral and piney as well. Perfect.

The taste gives me grapefruit and pine. It’s straightforward, not terribly complex but delicious. Exactly what a I long for in a west coast IPA. The mouthfeel is a bit drying but leaves you wanting the beer to linger just a bit longer.

This is the beer that got me hooked on IPAs. It was my introduction to a somewhat bitter, dry hopped beer. I blame it for being my gateway beer to all of the other over the top hopped beers. Thanks Stone!
