ok. given my tastes, not really notable. I'm looking for a replacement for harpoon ipa, and this was not significantly better.

perhaps a bit too hoppy for my tastes. but others really seem to enjoy this beer.

For my tastes, Racer 5 is my standard for IPA's

A --- Deep red with almost an inch of head

S --- Hop forward with a nice layer of malts in the background. Maybe a little sugar or something sweet.

T --- Malty, raisins, figs and yeast

M --- Medium-to-full body, good carbination, creamy. Almost porter like

O --- This is a solid beer! Very interesting and worth drinking again and again. Another solid effort from Stone!
