3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at PP Solana beach, listed as their own IPA, but w/o the "harvest" descriptor. Orange amber color. Tight frothy head. Med-high early boil bitterness. Muted hop aroma, except through the back of the nose. Sometimes I lose smell sensation in a pizza place. Is it smell overload, or lower carbonation. Still very good, and reasonably easy to drink.

It’s like a rest after a hard swim. I just finished Pliny the Younger and Expo Hoppiness, and this is so much milder. Poured a deliciously mellow, couldy, burnt orange from a cask. Quickly dying head. A little watery, but otherwise good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Aroma of orange, tangerine, herbs, grapefruit, mild breadiness.
Pours clear golden orange with a dense and white one finger head.
Taste is more resiny, herbaceous and grapefruity but still has orange and a bit of bready sweetness upfront. Intense medium+ bitterness.
Medium body, a bit sticky on the lips, medium soft carbonation, lingering bitter finish of orange peel and resin.
A classic west coast IPA and better aroma than Stone IPA.
