Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip. Purchased in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a hazy, golden orange body with a thick fluffy white head that slowly reduces to some uneven chunky foam. Leaves some blotchy thick lacing. Beautiful.

S- Super juicy and tropical. Fresh tangerines and grapefruit. Slight hop zest in the background. Perfect smell for an IPA.

T- Starts off juicy and tropical, grapefruit particularly. Progresses into a piney, floral hop character that leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue. The high IBU is really balanced here, it's not astringent or cloying.

M- Low carbonation, medium-light body. Easy drinker.

I was hugely impressed with this one. Definitely surpasses all of the other stone IPA variations that I've tried. I will be drinking this again.
