Second and third bottle enjoyed.
A- Light pour into tulip glass, thin white head with nice lacing.
S- Big hops noted upfront, lots of citrus, very light on alcohol.
T- Love the Hops, nice malt balance but not too much, Alcohol was hard to pick up.
M- Medium bodied, I really like the bitter finish.
O- Another outstanding offering from Stone, One of my favorite DIPA,s. Would definitely recommend it.

Poured into a tulip it’s spun gold, clear with a 2 finger head, decent retention and has champagne bubbles rising from the bottom. Delectable hops nose with a good bitterness up front. Fruits are tropical, piney. Sticky lacing and good malt underneath. Finely carbonated and a medium light body. Lots of oily bitterness and a strong finish. This beer bombs your taste buds and that’s no lie. Pair it with subtly sweet foods because it’s superbly bitter.
