3.88/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into my New Belgium 16 oz snifter, fairly vigorously to tempt the bouquet
A: Pours a brilliant clear golden/orange color with about a finger and a half worth of soft billowy head that recedes rather quickly leaving traces of spotted lacing behind. Mildly carbonated and looking like a typical IPA should.
S: Nose is of big sweet ripe fruit. Melon, cantaloupe, honeydew, some light minty spruce, and even a bit of refined sugar....very sweet tropical nose. Some malt nuttiness is showing at the end, but the sweet fruit juice is predominant.
T: Wow, definitely not what I was expecting. Taste is of some tropical notes, melon, sugar covered berries, and some light mint.
M: Mediun mouth feel, very light cracker-like mouth feel with some mild carbonation. It usually wouldn't work, but the bitterness is actually at the low end of the spectrum. The ABV is dangerously concealed at 9.5%. Overall I like what Stone did with their German take on an American IPA. Please drink this fresh as these delicate fruit notes will diminish with time. Cheers!
