3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Cloudy orange appearance, 2nd pour was clear, with a small white head and light sticky lacing. Aroma of floral notes, herbal hops, pine, citrus zest, toasted grains, tropical fruits and light resin. Similar flavor, strong hop bitterness with minimal malt sweetness. Medium plus body with a somewhat dry feel and a bold, lingering bitter finish. Not bad, but not too fresh either. I think this came out about 3 months ago.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Sprout’s: Poured a solid golden liquid as expected with most every other traditional IPA to leave Stone Brewery. Created minimal formation of head but did leave behind tiny amounts web like lacing from the foam. Aroma is a breath of life because of how awakened my senses sparked up. Thick whiffs of buttery malts and butterscotch candy with an undertone of perfumey hops that suggest oily green hop pellets. Only after taking my first sips did the hops start to kick in and really begin to shine since they have bright flavor of pine and tart citrus fruit.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful pour solid white pillowy head on top of murky gold color. Melon sweet flavors move to a nice, dry bitter finish. Almost as if the flavors stop before reaching the back of the throat but still enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Cock n Bull. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have resiny citrus hops, grapefruit, toasted malt, eearthy character, moderate plus bitterness, perhaps just a touch thin, yet sticky, I would drink this again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a nice thick white foamy head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with some grapefruit notes with some nice floral undertones is quite enticing. Taste is also dominated by loads of floral notes with some citrus and grapefruit notes easily noticeable with light bitterness notes with some residual sugars with the malt backbone. Light tropical notes are also noticeable. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Another good IPA to come out of Stone brewery.
