Pours more golden than copper with a nice rocky head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Has a nice malty undertone with your standard grapefruit WC hop flavor. Bitterness is pretty high for a non-imperial IPA. Overall, good. Like most of Stone’s offerings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The last of the 1,000+ ratings Stone beers I’ve had many times before but never rated ! Keg at Stone Brewing San Diego Airport, 22/04/14.
Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains well.
Nose is bitter citrics, juicy hops, bitter orange, grass, grapefruit.
Taste is more agressive than the aroma suggests, bitter hops, grapefrit, light pine, toasted bread, orange pith, grapefruit.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressve hop bitterness in the close.
Well balanced easy drinking IPA.

Faint hop aroma, mainly mango, probably a bit to old. Golden clear, white head. Really bitter, just enough maltiness to back up the bitterness without beeing noticed. Light body average carbonation. Nice taste but could have done with more aroma, probably lacks due to age

Tap. 10 oz pour at new bohemia. Light gold with white head and good lacing. Grapefruit aroma. Very hoppy and super dry throughout. This one doesn’t pull any punches.

Pours hazy orange peach. Aroma of hops, peaches and citrus but not as strong as expected. Taste is hops and bitterness. A great IPA but doesn't blow me away.

Une très belle bière avec plein d’agrumes dans l’arôme. Plein de corps, un peu comme une IPA impériale mais moins onctueux. Très bonne.

Never been an IPA fan, so I can’t say I cared for the hoppy aroma much at all. Nevertheless, I found it very fresh and drinkable.
