Big bold hoppy beer with a smooth bitter finish. This is a Stone Flagship beer. It defines the style.

A benchmark of the style. Fully flavoured with a hop-forward balance makes for a more in-your-face presentation than their standard Pale Ale (as it should be).

UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 On draft at the "I Love Pizza" restaurant in Narita, Chiba, Japan. Pours an almost clear yellow/orange with a medium white head and huge amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is powerful floral hops. Taste is bitter with grains and a bit of caramel. Bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel. Wonderful beer.

Poured a bright gold with a thin white head and lively carbonation. Bold, sweet hoppy aroma. Strong citrus flavour, very bitter middle and finish. Moderate lacing. Overly bitter for my taste.

On tap at Christy’s Euro Pub. Pours clear straw gold with a white head. Aroma is huge floral and citrus hops. Taste is mostly within the realm of hops with floral hops taking over. Perhaps a slight maltiness to it, but it’s vastly overpowered by the hops. Huge bitterness on the back end as well. Body is average, nice creamy mouthfeel though. Overall this is a pretty good IPA. It has all the flavors you would expect to go along with a lasting bitter finish. Solid.
