On tap. served a golden color with a decent head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, some pine, and fruity with grain. Taste of citrus, fruit sweetness and grain. Solid bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, crisp with a distinct feel. Nice beer but not a big fan of some over hopped IPAs.

The aroma in this is tremendous, you can tell that they used a LOT of late addition aroma hops. But it drinks and tastes like bitter seltzer. There’s no body to this beer like in Founders All Day and the aroma doesn’t match the flavor. Nice try Stone, but Founders wins this battle.

It’s a light gold ale with a solid sheet of whites. Smells like citra, some simcoe - hoppy. Flavor is citrus with orange peel, grapefruit and then some tangerine. There is a dry, crackery malt with a solid bitterness in there. Medium on light bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. Nice beer - can it.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale very clear pour. Bubbles clinging to the side of the glass like seltzer. A little bit of thick looking foam head. Huge peach and grapefruit aroma. Body is seriously thin. Tastes like peach seltzer. Hops are fantastic, but the malt is just too thin and unsubstantial to make this work. There is actually a good bit of sweetness, but the lack of body is a problem. Carbonation is too much. Bitterness lingers too much when the sweetness disappears too soon. The peach, apricot, grapefruit hop flavors are nice when they're there. Again, I really don't think this session IPA style works quite right.

2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a bright, clear lemon yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma is dank with tropical fruits and pine. Taste is malt up front but then it's all hops. Big piney taste and bitterness with a little caramel. Bitterness is refreshing and clean, not overpowering. Thin-medium mouthfeel.

It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was mostly of hops with citrus and pine hops dominating. The taste was of sweet malts and again with citrus and pine hops. Not bad.

Draft at the growler. NYc. Pours. Cloudy orange yellow color with no head. Taste is piney and grassy very much so which surprising for an iPa from stone with this low of an iPa. Decently good if you're into all the floralness

Fun in the sun fruity beer. Bitterness is well rounded and a little heavy, but without the early boil bitterness to weigh it down. Might be too fruity and full on to drink more than a few glasses, but nice beer all the same.
