look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by 10/24/12

A: Pours a hazy golden straw with whisps of orange and a 1.5 finger puffy white head. Some small bubbles are seen rising to the surface. Head sticks around for a few minutes, leaving nice lacing on the sides.

S: Get some pretty good hop notes right off the bat. A light fruitiness as well from the malts. Yeastiness and pale malts make up the backbone.

T: Great hoppy beer that doesnt completely smack you in the face with bitterness. The light malts back it up real nice. Lingers with some hop bitters at the end.

M: Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Doesnt leave a hoppy stickiness on your tounge.

Overall a wonderfully balanced IPA. Stone knows how to make IPA's and this is no exception. If you havent already, give this one a try.
