Poured from a 12oz bottle, the case said bottled on 11/1 which makes it about 8 days old, not gonna get much fresher, particuarly here on the east coast.

A: pours a remarkably clear and clean looking golden with a touch of orange. With an aggressive pour I get a finger an a half if nice white fluffy head that dissapates nicley and leavs some nice lacing...

S: nice! Some juicy citrusy grapefruit and tropical fruit hop aroma, there is also a nice bit of grassy and piney hops all blendin together into a delicious blended hop aroma...

T: is much like the aroma, agreesively hoppy, the pine seems dialed up a few notches from the aroma, contributing a nice resinous butter pineyness to the brew, along with the Juicy mango/pinneapple citrus hop notes, this is delicious.... That are also some herbal grassy hops in there which come through blending with the malts. The only thing is, on the end, there is a yeast grainy bready note that comes through, that I wish just wasn't there, but overall this is delicious.

M: medium body with a nice crisp moderate carbonation that lightly stings the tounge. Overall this ipa is dry and bitterly resinous.... And very very drinkable...

O: this is a very hoppy very bitter ipa, not for the timid, that's for sure, and I certainly am not timid... This is my idea of an ipa.

Served on tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Amber color with a white head.

Smell: Smell of citrus and malts. Heavy on the hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Medium bodied, smooth. Heavy on the hops, I would guess from the dry hopping, and some malt in the backround.

Overall: Great IPA! Enjoyed this one very much.

I overlooked stone for a pretty long time. Stone IPA was kind of like that chick in High School, who was cute but wasn't the most popular.Your captain of the football team and shes the trumpet player in the HS band. One day you decided to approach and shoot the shit and to your astonishment it goes pretty well. You invite her back to your place and the next thing you know your pants are around your ankles and your mumbling thanking some lost Babylonian god.

Thats stone IPA.

It has a smooth orange pour with a moderate amount of head. It feels really smooth in your mouth. You can really taste the hops along with the bitterness. Honestly i feel like ive been tempting my palate a lot lately and while most beers have fallen short this one definitely has not.

IMO this is just an amazing beer.
