Light crispy aroma. Sharp bitterness with not much other flavor. Was really expecting it to be better. Still not bad. Just not as drinkable for me as I would have thought.

12oz bottle. Bright gold color with minimal head. Aroma is fresh hops and light malt. Tasty flavors of nice hops. Easy to drink certainly, but not exciting.

Draft, straw-yellow pour with solid head retention. Juicy, tropical, sharp aroma. Flavor is initial sweetness, citrus, astringency lingering. Flavorful session.

Lightly hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Light and mildly sweet malts. Hops are grassy pine with mild herb. Orange pith and modest hop spice. Light finish. Goes down very easy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 6/26/2015. This session IPA pours a medium yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and piney. A medium bodied session IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and piney. Lively carbonation. A medium bitter IPA, lots of flavor and very drinkable. A nice session IPA, its not as over the top in bitter as one would expect with Stone. Although the bitterness does linger a long time. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Citrus & some grapefruit bitterness dominates the lack of malt profile. Great brewery but session IPAs just aren’t my thing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg, BrewDog Leicester. Diaphanous straw skimmed with white. Aroma of throat sweet peach and honey; humid ganja leafiness, dry pine and cedar, vomited OJ, curry leaf. Robust pine, peach, flowers and curry leaf on the palate backed with a thoroughly decent stewed tea and dunked biscuit English base. Lingers with nut husk and grapefruit. Bittersweet and punchy. Cheeky little English-style lunch time refresher.

Bottle pour at Blue Line Pizza in San Carlos, CA.Got danker over the session but ultimately didn’t have a lot of personality or character I’d expect from Stone. To be expected for a Session IPA I guess.

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours golden with a frothy off white head. Nice pinepple aroma. The taste is quite spicy at first with resinous pine flavour. Nice lingering finish. Quite light in body with high carbonation. Nice easy drinking, but lacking a little in body and malt bill.
