A- Hazy gold, one finger head.

S- Very sharp citrusy hop aroma.

T- Crisp clean hop bitterness throughout, just enough malty sweetness to bring balance to it all.

M- Quite light, but not watery.

D- Sessionable, at least compared to the ruination.

While this is a really good IPA, there's just something missing for me, or maybe the hype skewed my expectations. Regardless, I'm very happy that Stone made its way to Wisconsin.

A: blonde in appearance with big head and great retention

S: a little more floral than expected with some sour citrus and bready notes

T: hops bite a little at first but then the bread and citrus come to the rescue and balance this out for an incredible experience

M: very carbonated and dry, crisp and refreshing, not as heavy and oily as i would like

D: i would love to have a six of this after working outside, great crisp/refresing IPA
