4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another perfectly crafted brew from Stone. IPA is not my favorite style, but I like this beer a lot. It goes perfectly with Indian food. The aroma is great, the hops are pronounced and well-balanced with the other complexities of the flavor. A very drinkable, very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was the first time I saw Stone products in 12oz. Bottles so, I picked up a 6 pack. It was a bit pricey at $9.00 but, I’ve never been disappointed by a Stone beer so, I tried it.
It poured up a nice golden color with a ½ inch head and a very hoppy nose, it obviously received a heavy dose of dry hopping. The body was a bit thin but the flavor and bitterness were right on. I enjoyed it but wouldn’t rank it in my top 10 IPA’s.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The most drinkable IPA I’ve tried. Very well balanced with a hoppy flavor that’s not overpowering. It’s easy to see why this beer is so popular in IPA markets. Bitter aftertaste, but not the kind that make your tongue curl up. Very well rounded beer that could easily be drank year round.

Great aroma when first poured. The distinct taste of good hops comes out and begins to make your palate salivate. Taste is smooth with a nice bitter finish. Love this beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong floral aroma with a crisp, dry mouth feel. Hoppy taste, period. Tangy after taste.
One of the best high hop american IPAs out there.

Bottle. Pours murky gold with creamy white head. Strong, fruity aromas: pine, citrus, peaches and passonfruit. Strong, enveloping and lasting bitterness with an oily mouthfeel. Easy to see how this is an IPA for all others to compare to.

Wonderful in every respect, my favorite part has got to be the middle, with it’s brilliant hoppiness and an almost sweet finish
