look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: The beer pours a clear, golden body with a two finger head. The clarity is amazing. Why do Stone Ales always look so good?

Smell: Malts, pine, and grapefruits dominate the nose. There is a "buttery" aroma as the beer warms.

Taste: Sweet malts are noticed early followed quickly by a citrus hop bomb. The fruits do not stand out as much in the taste as they do in the smell but the earthy hop flavor in the after taste is heavenly.

Mouth feel: It is medium bodied. There is just enough carbonation to refresh the taste buds after the hop explosion. The feel invites another sip.

Overall: This is a near perfect representation of the style. Bottom line, Stone knows how to make pale ale, IPAs, and double IPAs.

Poured a bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is your typical IPA. Somewhat opaque. The smell is grapefruit hoppy with a hint of malt. The taste is simliar to the nose in that it's a grapefruitty with a hin of malt taste. Love the mouthfeel, medium to thick. Overall it's a really good beer. It's good in the bottle but I've enjoyed it more on tap. Not as dry.
