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.

Having overlooked this one for too long, I snagged a few pint bottles tonight. Poured slowly into a snifter, a beautiful soft, chunky head grew and settled into a lacey bead that lingered to the bottom of the glass. The color is tarnished gold. An initial fragrance of distant pine blooms into citrus and fades to spearmint. A clean, refreshing hoppy taste that is bitter enough to get your attention without that 'punch-you-in-the-Adams Apple' bite remained fresh. This IPA is one to spend an evening with preferably watching a sunset over the Blue Ridge mountains or the ocean at Cape Hatteras. I have had an epiphany...this is one not to be neglected.
