look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Aroma:  Intense piney, spicy, floral hop aroma.

Appearance:  amber to orange in color.  Two fingers of head.  Nice lacing.

Flavor:  Starts sweet, proceeds to aggressive piney, floral hops balanced by malt sweetness.  Finishes with a sweet, with bitterness that lingers.  A masterfully crafted west coast IPA.  Slight astringency noted.

Mouthfeel:  Medium bodied.  some syrupy characteristics present.

Overall:  Aggressively hopped, masterfully balanced IPA fitting of the Stone name.  A roller coaster of flavors that dazzles the senses.  Highly recommended.
