Had on tap at the Stone Brewery.

The beer pours a nice, rich amber color with a bit of white head.

The beer smells very strongly of hops and piney notes.

The beer tastes extremely hoppy on the first sip. Very crisp and refreshing. There is also a nice bit of bitterness on the sip as well.

The beer is a very light on in body. Very drinkable.

Overall, a very good IPA

I drank this straight from the bottle but from my observation it looks amber-golden with a little bit of head.

The smell is fresh and hoppy. The hops bite through my nose even!

This beer is deliciously complex. It starts off with a good blast of hops, then mellows into a still hoppy, yet smooth, crisp flavor with an extremely clean finish. It's a little resiny, as some IPAs are, but it's not overwhelming. Overall, a crisp, clean balanced taste.

The mouthfeel is smooth and palatable. Not too heavy.

I'm not a big IPA girl (working on in though), but this one really impressed me. I don't like when the hops overwhelm the flavor and never balance out, but this beer does that. The complexity and smooth, clean finish really made it enjoyable.
