A: hazy golden color, soft lacing

S: straight tropical citrus. Heavy orange, clementine, pineapple.

T: like a fresh juicy bite into the best tasting fruit you've had. Clean flavor profile with minimal bitterness. Lots of bright flavor without crowding the palate. Not much malt to speak of. Finishes much like the fruit, mild rind flavor without the heavy bitterness.

M: just right. heavy enough to carry the hops without a malt profile yet light enough to remain refreshing and highly drinkable

O: Excellent IPA, fresh, tropical citrus flavors with smooth, effervescent body. There is a reason this beer is the flagship of one of the best breweries in the world and is the figurehead for a revolutionary style of hazy IPAs.

A: cloudy; a dull medium gold in color; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a splotchy cap; very nice lacing;

S: mango, orange, mint, pineapple, a little soapy; normally when I think a beer smells or tastes soapy, it's not a compliment, but in this case, it's a clean, inviting, character;

T: mango and orange from start to finish; any malt flavor is way in the background; finish is mildly bitter with orange and orange rind;

M: medium to full bodied - somewhat creamy; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: not sure I've ever tasted an IPA that was this fruit forward (that didn't contain that fruit);

Perfect across the board. I don't rate here much anymore but have been having a lot of NE style IPAs lately (lawson, trill, veil, tired hands etc.) and this is one where I'd give a perfect score on the BA scale. Flat out worth the hype and acclaim.

11/16 can, complete haze. Looks like orange juice. Gorgeous head, retention, lacing.

Nose is hop juice, flavor and feel follow. Huge and perfect in every way.

Description: A hazy, cloudy appearance with a color that is sort of like apple cider but maybe a little lighter. White lacing but not much head. Aroma is full of tropical and citrus flavors (grapefruit, orange, peach) along with floral notes and some pine. Smell is deep and complex with several different layers. The taste is more bitter up front than the smell would indicate and that bitterness carries through to the finish. As it warms more of the fruity, floral notes make an appearance. Candidly, I wish the taste had been more consistent with the aroma. Mouthfeel is rich, velvety and much thicker than a normal IPA.

Suggested food pairing: Ahi tuna

If you like this beer then you should also try: Stone Enjoy By Unfiltered IPA

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely have it again) This beer didn't really disappoint - it's a good beer - but I don't know that it lives up to the hype. The aroma was really great and maybe raised my expectations for the taste which I thought was a little bit lacking. All in all, not the best IPA I've ever had but certainly worth trying if you have the chance.
