A: Pours a cloudy pale golden colour. About ½ inch of head with lacing down the glass.

S: Very strong hop aroma reminiscent of tropical fruits. Smells deliciously hoppy and sweet.

T: Great hop flavour up front with a powerful, yet balanced bitterness afterwards. Not much malt flavour, but there is some sweetness throughout.

M: Medium body, well carbonated. Very bitter.

O: This is a fantastic IPA. It is quite bitter with a beautiful hop aroma, but this is definitely not a sessionable beer. Best to enjoy one and then move along to your next beer of the day.

Poured into a snifter, from a bomber

Appearance - Hazy orange color but without a lot of head retention
Smell - Hop, citrus and pine.
Taste - Gets your attention at the first sip. Malt and Grapefruit. Then the hops, Citrus, Pine, Flora. Quite Bitter and all in your face, and all delicious.
Mouthfeel - Medium body and well carbinated.
Overall - The description Stone gives this one is correct. Its hop centric and the taste lingers with you throughout. Well worth it if you like the style
