4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice citrusy dank aroma, crystal clear appearance, thin crisp finish. Little light on the body but hard to do with this size IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is signature Stone dank/grassy hops and pine/citrus. The flavor is dank hops, fruit, citrus, malts, grapefruit/light tropical fruit and a long and bitter finish. Not as thin in body as other session IPAs, among the best in the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium sized, white head with fair retention and decent lacing. Clear, pale gold colored brew. Nose of oranges, some dankyness, earth. Body is light with a nice carbonation, lightly juicy with a bit much of an aspirin,y feel. Dry, pale malts dropped under a brisk citrus haze, lil toast and fruit, citrus and light berries. Dry finish, crisp and biting. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another solid session ipa. I might like this more than the lagunitas, boulevard, and founders onesí but that might only be cuz i had it fresh. Seems like it has more body than the others, but that might just be cuz itís fresher as I mentioned in the last sentence.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Blue Monkey, pours clearish olden with medium large bubbled off white head. Nose is huge on the tangy and tropical zested hops. I get mango, kiwi, grapefruit resin, and buttery melon. Flavor has a ton of that melon also, along with some grass, pine, and light onion. Finishes like water, itís not thin, just incredibly juicy and sessionable. I would put this one above founders all day, now letís see how fresh we can continue to get it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with dissipating white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is huge on the hops, lots of new world zestiness with a hint of citrus. Taste follows, hints of garlic and lots of grass with citrus overtones. Very clean and easy to drink, medium carbonation; awesome beer.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright yellow color with a full white head - looks like a good German Pilsner. The nose turns that perception on its ear, as it is a wonderland of grapefruit, pine and resin aromas. The flavor is a bit more subdued, with strong echoes of the flavors listed above. A nice crisp mouthfeel, with a very dry finish. The only thing missing is the alcohol - otherwise, a perfect west coast IPA. Perfect for day drinking - on an aside, my pilsner-loving, craft-hating wife thought this was really good - high praise...
