I'd like to start off by saying this is my favourite beer in the world, so if you're looking for an objective opinion, keep looking.

Stone IPA pours a golden straw colour, almost perfectly clear with a healthy head and very respectable lacing. The smell is completely dominated by the hops, but its so much more than that. Citrus and pine tones are mixed with an ever-so-slight maltiness to form the perfect bouquet. The taste is, well, incredible. The most intensely piney hops I've ever tasted in a beer (not including Ruination of course) are somehow balanced up front with the malt they've chosen. The aftertaste is almost just as intense and it's quite dry. Overall, I've already said it. A perfect example of an American IPA, and a perfect beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear golden color with a dense white head that doesn't want to go anywhere. Excellent lacing as well.

Smells of hoppy awesomeness but is not overly pungent. Very fruity with aromas of pineapple, slightly earthy and citric with slight notes of orange.

Pineapple and pine/mint, slight orange. Ample bitterness but not palate shredding. Very, very slight cracker/ buiscuit like malt adds a nice subtle taste towards the back with the hop bitterness coming back for the finish.

Feels light/ medium bodied, very crisp and drinkable, slightly refreshing even. Excellent feel.

Overall: A delicious IPA, deliciously hoppy but not to the extreme. Excellent.
