A - Clear and light. Looks so refreshing!

S - Wonderful hop spice. A bit floral. Hop, hop and more hop.

T - Very similar to smell. Spice, floral hoppy goodness. Hop resin lingers and bitterness is just awesome.

M - Light carbonation. Very clean.

O - Just a classic west coast IPA. Very hoppy, not much malt, a little sweet. Hop aftertaste is awesome. I love this beer. Cheers!

Bought a 6-pack at Total Wine earlier this month. Enjoy by date is a little smeared but it's still well within the suggested timeframe. Poured into my Dogfish IPA glass for review.

Light copper color with fluffy white head, nice carbonation and a tad of sediment which renders the beer somewhat hazy. Smells fantastic with pungent piney hops, whiffs of papaya & mango, maybe some orange and pineapple.

Tastes overwhelmingly hoppy with sweet tropical fruit flavors then a burst of hop bitterness. Piney & citrus resins linger and coat the tongue wonderfully. Definitely a true West Coast style IPA.

Mouthfeel feels light to medium bodied. Think the hop resins make it perceivable more full bodied but this beer is definitely extremely drinkable and a wonderful thirst quencher. No astringency from the amped up bitterness rate. Alcohol well in check and carbonation is fine.

A damn fine IPA overall. I love that Stone prints the Enjoy By dates on their bottles. As a conscious shopper, I like knowing how fresh my hoppy beers truly are after being burned one too many times. This just adds more appeal to Stone's beers. Anyway, this is a really great beer that deserves it's own merits.
