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..

Golden honey ochre, hazy, one finger dense creamy head, good lacing. Tropical fruit, mango, bit tangerine, caramel malt, sweet and inviting. Fizzy, light to medium body, malty, sweet and bitter, dry finish with grapefruit. Nice balance and aroma, enjoyed!

Hazy gold with a white head. Thin body. Super bitter hoppy. Good citrus and pine notes. Way too much thin bitterness, though a session IPA is expected to be as such. A bunch of flavor but too bitter for the body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a simple yellow color that was slightly grainy. Aroma of light grapefruit, easy floral aroma. Taste is the same, with minor citrus flavors mixed with a flowery flavor on the palate. A very easy drinking beer, light and refreshing beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bouteille achetée à Portland. Un beau liquide doré translucide avec une mousse blanche épaisse. Un nez d’agrume et de malt blond. La bouche est particulièrement amère avec des saveurs de vieux pamplemousse. Je ne suis pas convaincu par cette finale amère à la limite de l’astringence.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BrewDog Online. It pours clear gold with a decent white head. The nose is fresh, juicy, grapefruit, lemon parfait, grassy, dank and pissy action. The taste is crisp, refreshingly bitter, clean, grapefruit, lemon rind, light soap, fresh pine, floral, dank hops and just a touch of malty sweetness with a lingering, dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean and crushable. The bottle pretty much drank itself. Top notch session IPA.

Piney green aroma come from this cloudy yellow ipa. Citrusy bitter with low malt to balance. Light bodied and crisp with almost a buttery aftertaste. Bold hop flavor.

Beautiful cloudy golden pour and a big fresh citrus hop aroma. Flavor is all hop, bitterness isn’t overwhelming but builds very nicely over time. Very light bodied but somehow not unbalanced. I couldn’t imagine any less from Stone!

Bottle from Brewdog online, gold with slim white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine and tropical fruit. Similar in the taste, lots of grapefruit, long and big bitter finish. Medium to light body. Very nice.
