had at a stone beer tasting

smell and color were fine

taste ... appropriate amount of hoppiness for an IPA ... but there was a slight after taste not so much to my liking. slightly metal.

overall: good, not my favorite IPA, and not my favorite stone brew. prefer the grapefruit notes in the stone self-righteous ale (similar hoppiness).

Served out of the bottle into a traditional pint glass.
Appearance-golden small amount of carbonation with a 1/2 inch head, head is sticking to glass.
Smell-citrus and pine hops, not smelling any malt or alcohol.
Taste-notes of pine and grapefruit. I can also taste malt with a little alcohol on the finish. Very smooth overall though.
Mouthfeel-nice, crisp, very drinkable.
Overall-Solid IPA. Some IPA's really bite and sometimes I like that, this is an IPA however that you could drink several of very easily if you chose to do so. It is satisifies the hopheads but is also very well balanced.
