I shouldn’t have been surprised by how good this is, it’s a Stone. A Session IPA before anyone thought to name it that. Bright as a new penny reddish copper color, perfume and citrus nose. The body is light, but still with plenty of clean caramel malt flavor. Strong bitter hops in the finish. It might be floating, but it’s not a lightweight.

Citrus aroma and flavour. Nice brown appearance and quite bitter on palate. Overall strength poor and lasting taste quite chemical unfortunately.

weihenweizen (2627) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Translucent light brown with small off-white head. Aroma is big herbal hops, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is herbal hops with some caramel malt.

willisread (1580) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2015
Backlogged rating. Bottle from Old Town. Deep amber with a small off-white head. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose with some biscuity malts. Well-balanced with sweet malt and bitter hops. Not bad.

ciocanelu (595) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 25, 2015
Amber color with off-white head. Smells mostly like some herbal hops with a slight malty undertone. Taste starts with some caramel and continues with the same herbal hops note from the aroma. Quite bitter up-front and gets intensely bitter to the finish and follows in the aftertaste. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Overall this is a really aggressive amber ale with a lot of bitterness.

Bottle to glass. Pours a decent light amber color with an off white head. Nice citrus hop character. Amber malts. Pretty drinkable.

kevinator (1730) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Good hop aroma. Amber color with a solid head. Medium to light body. Hoppy amber with the right touch of malt to avoid being thrown into the vast sea of Stone IPA’s.

bpreo (2266) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2015
I wanted to like it, as I do most of Stone’s beer, but I could not get over the lack of alcohol content that doesn’t help the taste.
