aroma was very weak,slight citrus..the appearance was somewhat opaque and hazy.the taste was very bitter and overwhelmed the malts,which were nice tasting.very unbalanced.one the palate was light to medium and average at best.i was disappointed in this beer,since it had high ratings.

Well, it’s not the best ipa that Stone has delivered. Very refreshing! Grassy, fruity, intensive smell of pines, very light taste.

I never thought I’d see the day, but here it is—a Stone IPA that I don’t care for. I guess they can’t all be winners. I thought this was quite uncharacteristic for Stone. Thanks but no thanks.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 05/28/15
Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold body, small firm white head.
Pleasant hoppy aroma; mango, cut grass, pine needle, woody spice, with a touch of biscuity malt underneath.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.
Packs a plenty of hops into the body; grass, green herbs, pine sap, woody spice & tropical fruits. Modest measure of biscuity pale malts, finish somewhat abrupt with a brash bitterness.
Plenty of hops, but lacking that bit of malt to provide balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear gold with an inch of white head. Bright aroma of melon, grapefruit, a little hay and caramel, pine. Strange touch of capsicum. Lightish bodied, easily avoids the emptiness of some of these SIPAs - but then, it is 4.5%. Grapefruit is more prominent in the taste, which is fairly dry and quite bitter. Lesser tropical fruit and piney notes, malt is not doing much but is firm and pleasantly clean. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grass, valencia orange, little resin. Early citrus in taste before hop flavour hits. But it is lingering bitterness at the end that makes drinker forget it is only 4.5%. 330ml, 1.26std drks.
