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...

If anybody can create a perfect Session IPA it would be Stone Brewing. West Coast citrus and pine hops, light bodied and tailgate worthy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 7-03-2015. This bottled beer’s appearance is a small smooth white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine hops, grassy, floral, and earthy. The flavor is very bitter, citrus and pine hops, and earthy. This beer is medium bodied. A quaffable beer that with a good hop flavor. It is worth trying and it is a beer that I would drink again.

Rating #1300-21.10.2014 On tap at Stone Launch @craftbeeryeg. Yellowish amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness.Taste is light citrus and pine sweetness, tempered by a tame hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, mild alcohol warmth, and very well balanced. Crushable at 4.5%

This is the best of the so-called session IPAs that are on the mass market in Northern California. Some of the others are too one-dimensional = this one is nearly as nice as their ’regular’ IPA. A nice trend trying to get the alcohol down but preserving complex flavor, etc. why? cause i love drinking beer but don’t like getting drunk!

Caña en Cimmeria 13..11..2015. Color rubio velado con bastante espuma blanca persistente. Aromas intensos lupulos verdes y bastante cítricos. Sabores también intensos herbaceos frescos y verdes bastante lupulados con buenos toques también cítricos. Cuerpo ligero a medio, algo espumoso y denso, fácil de beber en general pero con un gran sabor y aroma en todo momento para sus 4.5 vol. Amargo final seco y herbaceo, verde y más verde, bastante prolongado e intenso. Grandísima sesión Ipa. Para repetir sin duda.

In short: tasty citrusy pale ale.
Pours clear bright gold with frothy rocky white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Citrusy, peachy, earhty, pine nose. Light to medium body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite citrusy, refreshing, some zesty and earhty, pine. moderate bitterness, ends dry. Very enjoyable and quaffable.

Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours almost clear golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is rather subdued, with peach and piney hops. Taste is very weak bitter, more fruity sweetness here, with notes of peach, dry clean mouthfeel, grows on me for every mouthfull, high carbonated, piney dry lingering finish.

First stone IPA I actually really got excited about though most love them. Fantastic, juicy and actually a good body.
