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.

12oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Dain!
Pours into an imperial pint glass, forming a 3 1/2" beige head over the same depth of clear coppery brew. Head is the Energizer Bunny, on and on it goes, eventually deflating, with plenty of chunky lace. Aroma is floral hops.
Taste starts sweet, clunks bitter in the middle, and balances some through the close. Kind of generic bitterness with little complementary notes. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Not a standout for me, but a solid brew.

A - Cloudy pale orange with a rocky off-white head. Minimal lacing. 3.5
S - Super grapefruit and pine. 4.75
T – Some malty sweetness up front, followed by the grapefruit and resin with long bitter aftertaste. 4.25
MF - Medium bodied. Super dry finish. 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a poco grande glass.
A-Pretty hazy amber-orange body, nice 1 1/2 finger head. Nice amount of lacing left in the glass from the beginning to the end.
S-Grapefruit, lemon, pine, some maltiness. Some earthy aromas are definitely there too.
T/M-Bitter hop on the front end then followed with a bready malt finish. A little too much carbonation which doesn't really allow the flavors to come out. Not as hoppy as a West Coast IPA, a decent East Coast interpretation, imo.
O-A good IPA from a local brewery that is putting out some solid beers. When this beer sells a portion of the money is donated to a local charity to help protect and restore the Schuylkill River and its sources.
