Nice and smooth going down.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Bottle. Typical IPA color with a nice, foamy head and good lacing. Very flowery aroma for an IPA. Flavor is fruity and bitter and perfectly balanced. This IPA is well deserving of itís lofty status. Maybe my favorite beer.
Re-rate - This is my favorite beer on the face of this earth, so I have to give it a 5.

Good use of hops, a lot of citrus and sticking out. Dark golden color with a foamy white head. The taste is well balanced, and really enjoyable. Overall, a really nice single IPA.

Pours a clear golden/dark orange with a soft looking finger of white head. Aroma of very fresh hops, strong lemon and grapefruit, bursts out of the glass. Taste follows through with more the same, bitterness is sharp but dissipates fairly into softer grapefruit, increasing the drinkability. Fresh and clean on the back palate, tingly bitterness lingers on. Hell of an IPA, these guys know what theyíre about and this beer nails it.

Had this on draft back on 11Jul2007. It was the cask version specially hopped with Simcoe Hops. Nice golder/copper color. Nice hoppy smell. This beer had great hop flavor but an almost surreal hop sweetness (unlike any other beer) and smoothness. I could drink this version all day long. Bottle the Simcoe version please. Iíve had the regular bottle version of stone IPA and it is good... but this is awesome.

Very nice golden tan pour, with a nice white, quickly fading head. Aroma is of citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Some pine as well. Tast was mor citrus, and pine then anything. Just a small touch of malt maybe? A little to bitter and spicey bitterness for me. Wnjoyable but not one I will really seek out again.
