On tap at San Diego downtown Courtyard Marriot hotel bar. Bar tender told me he fought to get Stone IPA on tap for 6 months, so I salute him. Pine and grapefruit aroma. Pours orange with persistant white head. Excellent lacing on the glass. Not much malt flavor, but rich, complex pine and grapefuit hop bitterness. Surprisingly restrained for Stone, and very drinkable. Excellent IPA.
