This is really nice. Pale golden yellow in the glass with a thin white head. Very potent floral, fruit, and citrus hop aroma. Medium body, reasonable bitterness but not overwhelming.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into an English tulip pint. Clear pale straw color with a big foamy white head that hands around throughout. Big cat piss aroma on the nose with some white grapefruit pith and pine aromas present too. Light body with a strong bitterness on the palate. Nice bitter, dry and crisp finish. Gets a bit like hops and water as it warms up though. Still a solid session IPA.

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.

Yellow colour, white head. Aroma of hops, mandarins, mango, peach. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter. Light body, thin slick texture, average carbonation. Very hoppy and wonderful.

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.
