Love the way it's marketed. Really drawn to the smell and the bitter bite of the hops. Outstanding!

More bitter that hoppy. I am use to the beers that showcases the hops more

Look - poured from 12 oz. bottle into a standard pint glass. Pours a dark gold with a one finger white creamy head that just stays there throughout. Lacing is fantastic. Hard-pressed to find a better looking beer (especially the head).

Smell - notes of grapefruit, citrus, raisins, and bready maltiness.

Taste - the hops didn't really hit me up front. Goes down very smooth. The finish is very long-lasting and bitter hops really come on here. Nice bitterness that persists for a very long time.

Feel - you can argue about what the finish does for you. I find it savory for a while but it goes on a bit long for my taste, resulting in an interesting mouthfeel. I feel like it desensitized me from what could have been the full experience. My only major complaint.

Overall - one of the best looking beers you will find. I'd definitely drink it again many times over but I prefer other IPA's and other Stone offerings out there. They are a fantastic brewery.
