Served on tap in a regular pint glass.

A- Dark orange with a one finger head. lots of hop haze, cant see through this well.

S- Lots of bittering hops and citrus tastes. Variety of oranges and grapefruit with a little pine.

T- This is an assault on your tastebuds. A ton of hops and pine tastes. Very citrusy, grapefruit and some lemons.
M- Slight textured feel, goes down smooth. Leaves your mouth with a hoppy and bitter taste which basically means to me that this IPA did its job. Medium carbonation keeps the taste alive.

O- A fantastic american IPA that just seems to do it all right. Its a benchmark of what this style of beer should be, I said that about Southern Tier's IPA and i think this one is actually a little better.

Poured to a Sam Adams perfect pint.
Pours a nice transparent golden yellow, two fingers of white head tops it off leaving some wicked lacing.
Super hoppy aroma, smells like simcoe, hop resin, a bit of malt in the background but not much and the expected tropical fruit. Lots of hoppy flavors with a nice light body, very drinkable with a refreshing bright carbonation.
Since IPA from stone, a brewery who knows its hops.

On tap today for lunch at the San Jose Cheesecake Factory.

A - Served a pale light orange, slight haze, lots of light passes through and makes the edges look almost yellow. A huge foamy cream-colored head sits on top and lingers for a long time. Rings of lacing form after each sip.

S - Lots of hops here. A earthy grassy tone finds my nose first, then some bitter citrus, close to lemon.

T - Similar to the smell. Citrusy, pine, grass, and a touch of tart orange. Not much of a malt balance, but that doesn't bother me.

D - A touch of a bitter bite, light body, good carbonation.

O - A nice lighter ipa with a nice hop kick.
