What a IPA should be. Full of flavor, crisp and strong. I really enjoyed this one.

A little over-hyped in my estimation, but still a very good IPA. Not bold or exciting, but very nice.

Smell: Intensely floral and honey like. Just simply lovely and made me want to smell it more.

Taste: Notes of fruits and flower. Malty. Intense hoppy bitterness at the end, which left a lot of hoppy aftertaste in my mouth.

Overall: I don't like bitterness, so I won't be drinking this often. However, that doesn't mean that it is not a good one; it is up there with the top, and I am sure I will return to it.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 20oz mug.

A - Poured an opaque amber orange with a small, quickly-dissipating head.

S - Light fruit and hop aromatics, relatively weak on the nose.

T - Smooth, light malts, quickly dissipating into both fruity and floral hop flavors, smoothing and sweetening out into a boozy aftertaste.

M - A bit fizzy, but very creamy and smooth for an IPA. It settles in well to let the palate talk.

O - Perhaps my opinion is skewed having tried a couple other Stone IPA's prior to this one. While the Delicious and Green Tea IPAs blow this one out of the water, it's still very smooth, balanced, and the hops sit in all the right ways.
