4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home, enjoy by 02/15/15. Clear golden colour, white creamy head. Strong piny, resinous character hops, grassy, and nicely fruity too with orange peel, grapefruit and citrus tones along with light some sweet tropical fruits. Long aftertaste, especially the bitterness lingers. Firm body (especially considering "only" 6.9% abv), medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Good IPA, crisp and bitter.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a enjoy by date of 2/2/2015.
I’ve had this beer before, but never reviewed it.
Aroma - tropical fruit - typical Stone beer.
Appearance - clear golden color. Super clear!
Taste - great tasting, smooth...delicous.
Palate - perfect bite at the end of the tongue - love it.
Overall - Stone rarely makes a bad beer, and this is another great beer by them.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Excellente IPA pour ceux qui aime le style très tranchant et belle amertume. Très bien équilibrée. Belle arôme. On sent plus que bien les 90 IBUs. J’ai adoré cette IPA, un classique.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Somehow hadn’t gotten around to this one. Sharp tangy grapefruit nose, some thick caramel behind, a bit of stinky fruit, too. Light copper/orange color, thin head, some lace. Tasty hopping right away, begins to balance in mid, but hops re-emerge, with a bit of burn in finish. Medium body, a bit of hop texture. Well, nothing is really outstanding, but somehow it all adds up. Pretty damn good (and I’m not a huge fan of the brewery, overall).

12 oz bottle. Appearance is clear, pale amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, with floral and alcohol notes. Taste is hop bitterness up front with flavors of grapefruit giving way to a subdued sweetness. Palate is light on the tongue, somewhat viscous texture, with a bitter finish.
