So, maybe it is because I've been spoiled by the NW Style IPA, but I can't help but feel like this beer is so average. The color was really nice, but the love that makes up an IPA is all filtered out. It smelled pretty medicinal, it tasted bottled, maybe a little old. It wasn't bad, just wasn't great. I think I'll stick with Arrogant Bastard the next time I go for a Stone beer.

It pours golden yellow, thin white head medium bubbles. The aroma is pine, grass, zest, don’t get much else. As expectee strong hops flavour, everlasting bitter finish. It’s one dimensional but nails it.

Pours a clear amber with a small foamy white head. Awesome aroma of fresh floral hops. Delicious flavour of fresh citrus hops with enough malt to make the taste very well balanced.

Aroma is grapefruit, tanin, clove, an earthiness, lemongrass. Roasty malts with caramel and honey hints. Taste is a rich sweet malt body transitioning into a deep hop profile that is passionfruit fruit, pine needles, clove and hay. Appearance is a slightly hazy orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

At a great tasting in Vranovo-Serbia, with markoijelena and cika Boban. Bottle courtesy of Costantin from the Hoppy Imp, Greece. Thank you fratello! It comes clear immediately that the bottle is not that young. Pours golden cloudy and bright, medium white cap. Nose: orang, syrupy, a bit too thin (old-flat?). Mouth: malty with a citrusy hoppy accent.
