look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

5 oz taster.

A- pours a slightly hazy light gold with a thin white head. Minimal lacing is left behind.

S- floral and citrus hops with orange zest, pink grapefruit and lemons along with pine needles, grass, caramel malt and faint tropical hops.

T- pungent citrus and piney hops with grapefruit, orange, lemon and grass with some light green melon and mango and a caramel malt backbone

M- medium carbonation and body. Hop resins coat the tongue with a dry and bitter finish.

O- similar to other stone ipas I've had with a big citrus and piney hop presence and the malt taking a backseat. This is a good ipa, but there isn't really anything in my opinion that makes it elite in the style.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip. Pours a cloudy orange yellow, with 1 and a half inch sticky white with head, lots of lacing. Smell is pungent pine, grapefruit, apricot, pineapple, and tangerine. Taste is just as powerful, grapefruit is most prominent and besides what was mentioned in the nose, some hints of garlic. Mouthfeel is dry, perfect size not huge or thin, very approachable, and lots of life. This is the beer that turned me into a hop head and it is still one of the best. Best by 1/25/12.

pours golden with some oarnge tinge to it, about a 1 finger head good retention with spotty lacing left behind

wouldnt have guess it, but it smells like an IPA nice floral hops some tropical fruits,

floral up front witch leads straight into the hops and there is about of them. mild citurs and tropical fruits throughout. good but hops arent balanced out all that great.

medium bodied and carbonation

overall the hops are a little over powering on the palet, for the other flavors to really come out. but they do warn you about it so there is NO reason to be caught off guard by it
