22 oz bomber served in pint glass

A - Clear brilliant amber with nice 2 finger fluffy white head with great retention and excellent lacing.

S - Amazing bouquet of herbal, floral, spicy, grassy hops, and a bit of malt.

T - Very nice herbal, spicy, and piney hops strike you first followed by a nice sweet malt note to balance the flavor with a touch of alcohol near the end with nice smooth bitterness to finish.

M - Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, super smooth and crisp.

O - Such a great IPA I could drink this any day of the week!

12 oz bottle poured into a mug. 6 pack bought at Rouse's in New Orleans for $9.69.

A: Looks like an IPA. Just barely lighter than the Torpedo I had before this. Not much head, but nice rocky bubbles. Pretty Jackson Pollock lacing.

S: Smell is citrus and hops heaven. Absurdly aggressive. One whiff and you know it's a Stone IPA.

T: Classic IPA citrus fruit (esp grapefruit) bitterness first, then a split second of malts, then that loooong hops finish that lingers forever. This isn't necessarily the most complex IPA, but it's incredibly refreshing. It tastes ballsy and great.

M: Very dry. Quenching. Carbonated perfectly.

O: My nomination for best bang for your buck IPA that's available nationally. Appropriate during all seasons, really all the time. An total craft beer classic.
