look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A - Pours a light medium amber orange gold color (lighting isn't so good where I'm at rt now). Massive amounts of carbonation initially before equalizing after a few minutes to a steady trail of small bubbles. Thin white lacing ring.
S - Once again (as my previous review), a cold serving temp is masking the aromatic goodness. The majority of the aroma is coming from a spicy grapefruit resin.
T - Taste more than makes up for the lack of nose. MASSIVE amounts of spicy tropical rind: grapefruit, oranges/tangerines, passion fruit, guava, lemons, and some floral character in the background.
M - Thick medium texture that's borderline full body. The combination of tropical fruit leaves a metallic-like coating in the mouth.
O - Very well done, another impressive and superbly solid IPA from Stone.

Orange color with a good head and lacing
Citrus smell with definite grapefruit odor
Clear, crisp, fresh taste. Strong citrus-grapefruit- at the start with strong bitterness at the end
Medium mouthfeel with some carbonation
Overall a good, crisp IPA with great citrus and bitter ending. Good ABV. Glad I tried this brew and may well again.

3.85/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with an impressive head; nice retention and a significant amount of lacing
Smell: Citric and bitter, with a pithy grapefruit character
Taste: A bit of graham cracker, up front, and then there is a bitter assault on the taste buds; this is not a floral, citrusy hop blast but a pithy, aspirin-like bitterness; just a vague smidgen of the malt lingers into the dry, bitter finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: This is quite a bitter experience and just what I would have anticipated from Stone, although the malt balance in many of their beers is missing from this one; not really the kind of hop profile I enjoy but one that a fan of really bitter beers might find appealing

Poured out of a 22 oz. bomber into my oversized wine glass. This beer pours a clear, light to medium golden color that shimmers with light. Quite reflective of the light indeed, or maybe that has something to do with the style of glass it is in. White head is about an inch or so thick when first poured into the glass and eventually settles to a nice thick ring lining the inside of the glass. Decent lacing. I don't think this style of glassware is conducive to beer having a lot of lacing, so I don't fault the beer for this factor this time. Aromas of sweet caramel, bready, biscuity, slightly toasted malt upfront that gives way to grapefruit citrus hop bitterness. The taste pretty much is the same with some bready, biscuity, slightly toasted malt with hints of caramel that gives way to a nice grapefruit, citrus, earthy hop bitterness. Good balance here. One of the more balanced IPAs I've had from Stone. Quite tasty! Has a crisp, slightly prickly, yes somehow also smooth, somewhat chewy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate to heavy carbonation. Dangerously drinkable for a beer of this caliber with this high of an ABV. Stone continues to impress me! :)
