look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear, orange body with a substantial white head that stays around for a while, before dissipating into a ring around the sides of the glass. Good lacing.

Smell: A dense hop nose with some floral citrus, pine resin, and spice as well. Light, slightly sweet malt noticeable, and some clean, fruity esters as well.

T/M: Big bitterness up front, followed by some pronounced floral/citrus rind hop notes, light body but smooth. The finish is lingering bitterness, more citrus, pine resin hops, and a subtle candy malt flavor on the bone dry finish.

Overall: Great beer, and so damn easy to get. I frequently pass this one up for other IPAs I have not tried yet, but here in Montana, this one is hard to beat. Stone, what would I do without you?

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Light orange with some haze and plenty of carbonation. The off-white, soapy head diies down, but sticks around for a while and laces well.

S: Bitter grapefruit rind, nectarine, sweet malt undertones, maybe some pineapple.

T: Grapefruit and lemon-- and real citrus monster. Very bright. Solid sweet bready malt backbone. Bitter, but not as bitter as I would have thought, especially coming from Stone.

M: Medium, carbonation is surprisingly soft and unintrusive.

This was nice and balanced (for a hop lover) IPA. While it was a nice beer to drink, it is not my favorite of the style.
