Had a taste of this after the brewery tour.

Crystal clear.

Incredibly pungent aroma that is exceptionally floral. Very bright and airy. Taste is quite bitter, but not enjoyably so - no harshness. The hoppiness is largely in the aroma and less in the flavor.

Very solid IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

Nothing short of great, Stone delivers a fine IPA which, strength-speaking, really isn't too far off their double - Ruination. While still being decidedly less strong overall, this IPA is huge on hops. They dominate the nose and palate, leaving a sticky hop residue in the back of your mouth. Hopheads rejoice! Personally, I'd take Ruination over this one, but to get a 6 pack of this one is about 5 dollars cheaper, and I couldn't fault anyone for grabbing one. It is a great beer.
