600ml bottle poured in an ordinary glass.

A: Pours an orange to amber color. Clear. Forms a small to medium, creamy, fluffy white head. Medium retention and many lacings left

S: Absolutely delicious flowery, citrus, very grassy and piny hops in the nose. What would you expect? Caramel malts and honey to compose...

T: Again, delicious, sligthly sweet upfront. Caramel, sweet malts, honey, pine, pineapple, grass, fruit esters, earth, perfect

M: Medium to heavy body, medium carbonation, very smooth texture and mouth sensation to such IBU and ABV. Pleasant bitter aftertaste

O: Absolutely drinkable. Excellent Stone quality beer. A liquid poem to the glory of the hop! No more, no less...

This is the best of the Stone brews I've ever tried.... The appearance is a deep color with slight amber under light.... It has a nice and plentiful head.... The taste seems hoppier than that of the "Levitation" with citrusy hints.... It has such a delightful nose of deep citrus notes with an aftertaste that hangs with you for awhile.... Amongst my favorite beers of the over 400 I've tried.... Easily, one of my favorite American brews.
