4.59/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - wow, very surprising how incredibly light this is. Pretty much the lightest, pale/golden IPA Ive had. Fairly hazy as well. Good head and great retention.

S - Mostly pineapple and other tropical notes. Some subtle sour grapefuit. Not super powerful aroma but its very nice and clean.

T - WOW. So smooth, lots of a flavor, great interplay between the different hops. Slight welcome bitterness. Totally unique flavor profile really. No noticeable alcohol. I could drink this growler in 15 minutes.

M - Not a very full body but its perfect for this style of IPA. Just so smooth, perfect carbonation. No harsh bitterness anywhere.

O - Very unique IPA. I was kind of disappointed in the appearance and aroma (but that's mainly a personal preference, nothing really "wrong" with it at all). Flavor is perfectly balanced with pineapple really coming through.

I had this for the first time at the Stone 17th Anniversary Party-- phenomenal. This is a beer with great balance and an awesome hop flavor. Born in San Diego, land of the IPA, this is one of the best. The aroma is fantastic, the taste is even better.
