4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22oz. bottle. Pouring smoothly into my pint glass, I can see the light amber/orange colored brew slowly rise to the top forming a nice one inch slightly off white head. What a fine sight it is. The first thing to hit my nose is pineapple, like I just opened a can as I often do. Then it starts to become more complex with other fruit odors, maybe a little bit of a peach schnapps smell or, maybe its that I detect a little bit of the sweet smell of honey. Wow, my rookie nose is really showing its character, or is it that the complexity of this beer is blowing my mind? Upon the first taste I notice the malty sweetness and flavor explosion. Nice and bitter with plenty of mouth watering hoppy citrus flavor. Extremely refreshing and inspiring. The head retains itself at about a quarter inch leaving a nice lace to the end. Or no, its not over yet, I still havent finished the bottle. The rest pours smoother as it has warmed a little. This beer must be bottled conditioned because it is now cloudy in my glass, as the complex flavors improve. I know that this is the best IPA Ive had yet.

Standardowa IPA. Bez wad, ale też nie mająca nic takiego co by człowieka skłaniało do rozwodzenia się na jej temat.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The quintessential west coast IPA that defines everything great about the style. The appearance is translucent orange tinted gold. The head is creamy white. Super dank aromatics of pine and citrus. Apricot, grapefruit, lemon and tangerine dance around with fresh cut pine tree. The tasting treats the pallette to slightly toasted malt, refreshing citrus with a long dry pine finish. Clean, balanced malt bill let Stone’s talent for hop aggressiveness shine through. A brew that keeps me coming back for more and more.
