Standard Solid Stone IPA. Nothing special but doesn't need to be.

Another (good) Stone IPA...but I repeat myself. Light golden honey, terrific nose --- volumes of floral and pine come up from the glass. Give it an agressive pour and get your snozzle down there to take it all in. Ultra smooth, blanced and clean. Could use a smidgen more carbonation to keep things lively, but that's a nit. Stone turns these out like it was No Big Deal, but we know otherwise.

L - Yellow/golden with great clarity and a medium white head.
S - Piney, resiny, bitter hops with notes of lemon - the smell is pretty faint however.
T - Piney, bitter, resiny hops dominate the palate along with notes of lemon, grassy notes.
F - light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Clean, crisp, and light. Would be very refreshing on a hot summer day.
O - This is a great IPA overall that's clean and crisp - it showcases the hops well, but all in all, this beer is plagued by the common issue all of Stone's releases have suffered this year - there's nothing special about this beer that makes it stand out. It's got some more bitterness compared to their other IPAs that have been released this year - which is a good thing...but more work needs to be done. Great IPA, but in a time when all brewers are pushing out tons of great IPAs, Stone needs to put out something new and fresh, rather than the same thing rehashed.

From a 12oz can:

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow, big head.

Smell: Mix of pineapple, berries, and dankness.

Taste: Follows the smell--fruit mix with pineapple up front then berries in back. Moderate bitterness.

Overall: Stone still makes good IPA's, this one follows the hops pretty closely--El Dorado (pineapple) and Mosaic (berry). I need to get around to trying some of their other recent ones!

A very solid, well crafted IPA. Sweet and hoppy and full bodied. Slight lingering bitterness.

Brilliant yellow color with loads of hop haze underneath a billowy bone-white head that tracks your progress through the beer. Nose has some dank citrus notes, but there’s also a berry component that is intriguing.

Welcome to the party, Mr Fresh Blueberry. The taste has mango, guava, and a smorgasbord of fresh blueberries. Simply outstanding.

This is most definitely a Stone IPA, and I love Stone IPA’s, so by the transitive beer nerd property, I love this beer.
