After trying a bunch of stones I figured I should step back and try the IPA. This pours light orange/yellow with a white head. The smell is a lot of citrus and pine, slightly yeasty. This tastes great, it starts and finishes with a consistently great hoppy dryness. The favors are typical; hoppy, piney, citrus, lemony, and the lack of malt makes this a crisp masterpiece. This isn't the best IPA ever made but I can see why this is a staple for stone, glad I finally grabbed one, I waited too long.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a golden, opaque, honey color with a large fluffy white head. Excellent retention and lacing. Smells very strongly of hops, there are definite pine and earth notes along with a slight citrus. Taste is slightly malty sweet at first, but quickly fades to a strong hop bitterness. There are pine and resin characteristics. There is a nice long lingering bite in the finish. The mouthfeel is slightly oily. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. This beer is very drinkable, although I discovered it is maybe too drinkable. This is turning out to be one of my favorite IPA's. It is very enjoyable and I recommend giving it a try.
