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.

Stone Brewery in Southern California has been producing excellent beers for more than a decade and have a wide array of offerings. This IPA, though not their best IPA (in my opinion), is one with fine character. The golden color of the beer is contrasted with a off white head which laces the beer glass while drinking. The aroma, though not as pronounced as other IPAs (thinks Avery's) is nonetheless hearty with agreeable hop notes. It has a hops, earthy, and some light citrus flavor which remains on the palette even after drinking. Sure, there are many IPAs on the market, but this one is well above average, very drinkable, and remarkably consistent every time I have had it. And another benefit is that one can find the beer all over the US owing to the size of Stone Brewery (among the top 25 largest breweries in the US).
