Bottle pour. Clear copper golden in color. Possesses many different aromas. Bread, hops, orange, and grapefruit are all noticeable. Clean light to medium body. Complex taste. Starts slightly malty, but quickly moves to a citrus taste with a lasting sweet aftertaste. Very good beer.

22 FL. OZ ($4.99) this was a real good IPA. enjoyed this beer and will be buying again. so far everything from Stone has been really good. more of a light IPA to me but has its own character that stands out from their other lines and well other IPAs for that matter.

Aromas of grapefruit citrus, spices, yeast. Tasting notes of citrus, bitter hops, spices, yeast, orange peel, hint of banana. Medium body with a dry finish. Semi-juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma- Banana right off the top. Grapefruit, pine, and hop funk. Give it a swirl for a nice whif of clove and brown sugar.
Taste- Man, thereís a lot going on. Its like thereís sweet grapefruit, banana, apple and pear up front, followed by light fresh hops, and ending in pine, grapefruit rind, and a pinch of pepper.
Overall- Its been said so many times, its almost not worth saying. Stone knows what the hell they are doing. If you havenít jumped on board, youíre insane.

Golden in color. Aroma is lemon and bread. Definitely a Belgian style beer with a lemon-hoppy flavor. Not my style of beers.

22oz bottle all to myself: 16th March 2014. Drank overlooking Balboa Island, I enjoyed it so much that I had a draught one at the Stones Liberty Station outlet in San Diego the following day (and it was just as good). Something sets this apart from almost all the other beers I had while in California (and I had plenty, trust me), it had everything I like in a beer. Belgian yeast being the biggest single ingredient that did it for me. Really, really great beer.
