Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
To create a recipe so tropical and fruity without the addition of fruit was no feat our team of brewers would leave up to the gods. They took floral and citrus notes from Mosaic, Loral and Mandarina Bavaria hops to dish up a mouthwatering fruit punch to the palate. Get deserted on your own island or share with others. One thing is for sure: there is no need to light this one. It is already on fire.

Pours out a medium clear honey color with a slightly off-white head. Retention if phenomenal and there is plenty of even sticky lacing around the glass.

Lots of bittersweet orange and grapefruit in the nose. There is a bit of a floral quality but 90% of this is citrus.

Very fruit taste. Its sweet but also satisfies the hop carving. Mostly orange but you also get some pineapple.

Mouth feel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Works well.

Hazy gold/orange leaving decent lace from a 2 finger head.
Citrus forward nose of orange and a hint of grapefruit.
Citrusy Hops dominate the taste with a medium mouth feel and proper carbonation.
If a 7.5%IPA can be considered sessionable, this is the one. Very enjoyable!

Copper filtered with lots of carbonation, and 2 fingers of beige head.

Smells of tropical fruits, pineapples, mangos and caramel.

Tastes of dank, earthy, green leaves, cabbage and caramel, tea leaves and grapefruit pith.

Medium, syrupy body, with moderate carbonation.

Got in Safeway, drinking in Redding, CA, August 30th, 2018. Well done brew.

From the 650 ml. bottle with an enjoy by date of 10/23/18. Sampled on August 15, 2018.

The pour is a handsome looking golden tone with excellent clarity and a long lasting, white foamy head. Lacing.

The aroma emits fruity characters mostly along the lines of orange and berries. Then I pick up this kind of sandpaper graininess in the malts. Smells otherwise clean.

The mouthfeel is medium or better.

This has a lot of the characters of a traditional IPA with the fruity and sweet balanced taste that leads up to a low bitter and dry finish. Smooth and easy drinking.

Not a bad IPA. Not as strongly mosaic as the description. Had this right after a Toppling Goliath Pompeii. Huge disservice to Stone. Toppling Goliath > Stone.
