22 oz. bottle into a Nightshift Brewing tulip.

A: Copper in color. Minimal head. Dissipates quickly. Excellent lacing.

S: Heaping nose of pine.

T: Awesome IPA bitterness, but balanced.

M: Crisp, refreshing carbonation. Dry finish.

O: Excellent, easy drinking IPA. I loved Stone Enjoy By 12.21.12 and this is right there except for the freshness turnaround.

Presentation: 22 oz bottle

Appearance: Golden. Like a real beer should.

Smell: astringent clean hops.

Taste: I think they put some hops in here. Bitter but not too bitter. Nice edge, makes me remember why I like beer.

Overall: Nice worthwhile beer. Good to share with a buddy and talk beer. As much as I try to find other alternatives other than Stone, I always come back here. Wanna feel like a real man? Drink Stone IPA.

Good stuff!

This is a top tier IPA along with 90 minute and Racer 5 to name a couple. A perfectly crafted IPA that doesn't try too hard nor does it cut corners. What I love about this IPA is that it is incredibly accessible and relatively well priced, all things considering. In any case, worth every penny.

I love Stone brewing, don't get me wrong but they could have done much better with this one. It lacks on almost all fronts. Stone is known for being cutting-edge and over the top. This one is a safe bet. It's not a bad beer, but it just lacks that Stone-esque edge that we know and love. The taste is good, not great. Bitterness is there, nothing else really. Nose is decent, earthy, piney and floral with mild citrus. I wish they would have tried harder with their year-round IPA. Middle of the road, at best.
