12 oz. brown bottle.

Clear amber with modest white head.

Pungent, herbal hops with a nice caramel like sweetness in the nose.

Medium-light body with subtle carbonation and a nice oily mouth coating. Hops are ever so present, but not over the top. Citric in nature, backed by the signature Stone syrupy malt sweetness.

Not the best IPA I've had by a long shot, and not the best beer I've had from Stone either, but still better than average.

Light golden beer with a white, frothy, one finger head. Excellent sticking on the lace.

Aroma is all hops. Mostly pine hops with fruit notes and a pungent edge. Bitter overpowers sweet.

Taste has a bite. Nice bitter hops. Pine and grassy mainly. Slight hint of pineapple. Little bit of butter/toast malt to back up the hops.

Leaves a bitter, dry, hoppy aftertaste. This is a good smacky, sticky ipa.

When I imagine a standard ipa, this is what I think of. It isn't a tropical fruity, sweet ipa, and it isn't a high hop, high malt backbone ipa. Nothing overpowers and it's hop dominated. Bitter and crisp.
