Really solid, straightforward IPA from Stone. Pours a deep amber with a white head that dissipates into a thin layer of tiny bubbles in a minute or two. Aroma is hops and lemony citrus, and the flavor is earthy and herbal, quite bitter, and just a slight sweetness competing with that. Clocking in at just under 7% abv, the mouthfeel is slick, bracing, and moderately carbonated. Not a lot of bells and whistles on this one, and truth be told I like my IPAs a bit sweeter, but this guy is of fine, fine quality, and a great value at ten bucks a sixer. Clean, tight, simple beauty of the style.

Bottle into my RR tulip to kick off football watching today. Go Dawgs.

Appearance: lightish old gold. Beautiful head and lacing.

Smell: Tropical citrus and pineapple. Slight toffee

Taste: Orange and grapefruit and lemon. Citrus overload and awesome. Balanced slightly with some malt character--sweet toffee. slight alcohol burn aftertaste in a good way.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, drinks easy enough. Wouldn't want to have more than 2 or 3 of these, very hoppy.

Overall: This probably sets the precedent for readily available American IPA's. Can't believe I haven't reviewed this before--seriously, if you need a reasonably priced IPA to sip on, look no further.
