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

A: Pours a generous 2 finger fluffy off-white head that takes a good bit to settle. Color is a yellowish caramel. Lacing and retention are excellent even after 30 minutes into the pour.

S: The Hop profile gives me a one-two punch. The bouquet is full-bodied and balanced. Piney and delicious.

T: Wow. So many flavors going on here. The floral hops transition to a sugary grapefruit creaminess. Twinge of oak and vanilla. Tongue is left with a bitter resin that just feels right.

M: Moderate carbonation, but I was hoping for more. Slightly sticky and smooth.

O: Drinkability is fantastic. The beer is so smooth and ABV so understated, you won't even know you are on the train to IPA heaven. Well done Stone!
