3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden color, very clear. Not much of a head after the pour, and barely a pencil thin ring of foam after a minute. Looks a bit lacking on carbonation, but the smell is definitely enticing. It has a big citrus hop nose as advertised, with fruity taffy notes and a floral tinge.
The taste has the same citrus hop burst, and it really doesn’t have much malt balance. It is clean, a bit watery, and where you expect that malt flavor to be, it is like it disappeared. The finish is nicely bitter, but still feels like it lacks something. The carbonation is actually fine on this beer, despite the initial appearance. Clean, light bodied.
Stone definitely succeeded in what they set out to do here: a low ABV yet west coast hop intensified beer. I love the idea of a session IPA, though it’s hard to say if I love the finished product. It’s very good, don’t get me wrong, but just like some IPA’s can get too strong on malt, this one borders on being too light. That being said, I am still going to drink more of this, and hopefully it grows on me more.

Served on tap. Orange color with a white head. Citrus hop aroma. Clean medium body. Hops, malt, and citrus are what are involved in this beer. Balanced but nothing special.
