3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one a couple of times but finally getting around to reviewing one of the last bottles left in my fridge... Picked this up at the COOP a couple weeks ago.. Pours a crystal clear golden with a short lived white head.
Nose is huge hop-forward tropical fruits with plenty of pithy citrus zest for so little malt backbone.. almost too much, but I really like it nonetheless.
This tastes like my idea of summertime brews! Very hoppy and still balanced.. bitterness melts back fast into the pithy hops with just enough melon and finishes back bitter with a dry pale maltiness...
Light body... nice bubble... incredibly drinkable especially for Stone..

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Lovely aroma of mango, botanical hints, peanuts and pineapple jelly. Flavour of pine, mint and grapefruit. Thin body with an oily texture. Fizzy. A 4.5% ABV hop bomb. Reminds me of BrewDogís Dead Pony Club.

Keg at Brewdog Camden. Light golden orange coloured pour with a thin white head. Aroma is nice dank citrus, floral notes. Light chive, spring onion on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of crisp base grain, highish carbonation, earthy slightly dank citrus on the flavour as well. Palate is semi crisp with a dry finish. Uber drinkable. Very tasty for the abv. Suburb beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Letís see how the arrogant ones deliver a sesh IPA. Itís got a nifty pour, a clear yellow body with a creamy head. The aroma is zest, pip, and grapefruit... mayhaps with a touch of the litter box. The malt appears in the flavor as watery grain. The hops come across as in the nose, a bit more catty, and the bitterness level is moderate, although it does linger for quite a while. Dry finish. Itís okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from bodega near Brian's in Brooklyn. Translucent orange-golden pour. Stone-style hoppy aroma - slightly floral, mostly resin and pine. Taste is the same - like a dialed back Stone IPA. Pine and resin hops, bright, a bit empty though. Some lingering hoppy bitterness. Not bad for a session IPA but a bit light.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Light piss color with low to moderate head. Just a beautiful aroma on this. Really psyched me up for the beer. Flavor was a bit of a letdown however. The hops are there, but since this is a much lighter beer, they don't really have anything else to interact with. A bit one note and thin, but certainly a decent beer and one of the better session IPAs I've had. I just wish it could have lived up to aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a bright yellowish color ale with a medium size white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus notes is really enticing with nice floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by nice citrus and grapefruit notes with some floral undertones and limited bitterness. There is some small dose of residual sugar notes that are noticeable with some non-descript malt notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Nice to see that you can get this nice hops profile without having too much alcohol.
