Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy golden amber color with a finger of off white head. The head leaves a layer on top of the pour and some lacing.

Smell: Juicy citrus notes up front. The hops remind me of citrus peel along with some pine. There is an overall sweetness as well.

Taste: Thank goodness, it taste a lot like it smells. Hoppy right off the bat with a nice sweetness to balance things out. Juicy citrus peel hops along with some pine needles. The finish is rather bitter and a bit peppery.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with lots of tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: A very good IPA from Stone. I enjoy this beer and will have more in the future.

I had the beer for the first time yesterday from a bomber,while brewing my own beer. I got it from a craft brew place called the fridge in lancaster. It's one of the best ipas ive had in a while. the hop aroma and taste are like heaven on earth.I will be getting this beer again and will be making a clone in the very near future.
