12oz to my stone specialty ipa glass. Enjoy by 5/12/13 date

Pours a mildly carbonated golden orange with a finger of foam. Good visibility with mediocre retention and lacing. Aroma of spicy malts with a strong malt base. Orange and other citrus rind meld with some floral notes and alcohol, pretty balanced here. Taste follows the nose well, upfront spicy hop with a sturdy malted backbone. Not much of the floral or citrus notes translate well to the palate, leaving much of the flavor cut and dry hop and malt. The two balance each other well, but leave the overall flavor pretty bland- not much complexity. Feel is solid, dry and sticky, easy to drink with well concealed alcohol. Overall this beer is good in a balanced sense, however living on the west coast I'm used to my ipas ridiculously over hopped and citrusy, not something I get with this beer. As a result I disagree with it's average rating pretty dramatically. This beer just isn't for me

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a nice cloudy reddish amber with a decent 1 finger white head. Smells of earthy hops, and some sweet barley. Tastes of citrus and pine with slight barley, very nice balance. Beer is slightly over carbonated, but for its medium body it is still a great beer with nice balance. Overall a very good beer.
