Found a well priced six pack of this while near San Diego

The beer pours light orange color with a nice, thick white head. Retention is pretty decent

The aroma is wonderfully complex. Lots of floral and citrus scents. The hop scent reminds me of why I love IPAs.

The taste is very balanced. The hop flavor is strong as expected, but it manages to be one of the smoothest IPAs I've had.

A somewhat viscous mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation.

Very similar to the regular IPA from Stone (which I drink on the regular basis), with more of a kick to it. This beer is among the best of its style
