Poured clean with a light white head.
Aroma of citrus hops and mild malt.
A well balanced IPA that presented the hop bitterness without crushing the palate. Good overall body and presentation of malt. Enjoyable IPA that raised the desire for another. Nice job Matt.

Actually live near the brewery. Tried Stonefly on tap several times during the past few months and also buy cases at the brewery.
First time trying it, it was very good. Bought a case and it did not taste the same as the bottle. Late last year they changed the recipe a bit and it is much better.
Good appearance since they do not filter it is very cloudy, but I like that item. Pretty carbonated IPA with nice hop smell. It became my standard beer to have around this year.

A: A billowy light tan head forms above a canyon clay colored body with a heavy protein haze within. Broken soapy ring lace, faint misty rise of effervesce.
A: Aroma was light to moderate in strength, a bit sub-par in complexity, very sweet caramelized citrus best describes this with a leave of pine hops.
T: The flavor was sweetly toasted specialty grains meeting juicy wet citrus and pine hops. Lightly dry hopped, lemon straw with only a moderate hop bitterness.
M: Light mouthful, lacking in crispness, light carbonation and mildly unexciting.
O: Overall middle of the road offering that lacks stand out features. Malting is decent, a bit heavy handed on the speciality grains, but the hop strength and complexity lacks anything more then entry level appeal.

3.85/5 rDev +7.8%
A: The beer is murky yellow in color and has some fine particulates visible floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down and consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—grapefruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of grapefruit hops and has a moderate to strong amount of bitterness. Both the grapefruit flavors and bitterness linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA really packs in lots of flavors of fresh grapefruit hops and bitterness, but seems like it could have used a little more crispness and underlying malts.
