Bottle ales by mail. Beautiful clean fresh pine and citrus aroma, easy on the palate with lemon sherbert soft bitterness and a fine dryness. Finish has leafy papery notes with more lemon late on. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a thin white head. Excellent. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - OCT 3, 2015

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a thin retaining white film. Within the body is noticeable active rising bubbles.Beaver (1799) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2016
Aroma: Citrus/dank nose and a touch of malt sweetness.
Taste: Fruity first, then a little sweet. Finishes with some hop bite that disappears within seconds after the sip.
Mouthfeel: Very thin, juicy. The carbonation level is moderate compared to how it looks within the glass.
Overall: Tasty, inviting, definitely sessionable. I like it a lot.

The aroma is fruity bready malt with piney hops.
The flavor is bready malts with tangy fruit and piney resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a very nice session IPA - one of my favorites with Stone’s Go To IPA.
Bottled February 11, 2013.Beerhammaren (1793) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Appearance: The body is clear with an amber hue that sits placid, the head is tall and dense producing a rocky coating that slowly dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma smells tropical with some mango and pineapple that come to mind, but oranges and a touch of grapefruit are also here. This smells very nice.
Taste: The taste is maltier than the aroma gives off with a touch of toasted malts and some malt sweetness, the hops are balanced nicely providing a moderate bitterness of citrus. This reminds me a bit of grapefruit in the flavor, but not very strong.
Palate: Full bodied with soft carbonation that fizzes up a touch.
Overall: This is a nice beer, especially at the ABV it’s at. I think I prefer Lagunitas Daytime to this though if I had to choose. Either way this is a solid beer, I just wish it was available at a more sessionable price.
.33l bottle Citymarket Keljo
Pours clear light amber with medium white head. Leaves some lacing. Aroma is pine, hops, some exotic fruits. Flavor is malts, hops, citrus fruits. Nice dry hopsy and malty palate. Bitter dry finish. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Clear and golden with hoppy aroma. East drinking but holds a decent hop bite. True to what it us supposed to be: a good IPA that won't floor you if you're downing them all day long. Nicely done.

Light cherry, mango and lots of breezy floral aromatics in the nose. Content and calm. Soft malt. Distant weed-like or catty pungency.mithe (1778) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 20, 2015
Super clean, lightweight hop flavor, but firmly concentrated. Stone fruit flavors and tropical notes tend to seem a bit sugary or candy like. Sticky mid palate washes away into floral dryness at the end. Poundable.
This is a benchmark example; lack of complexity is made up for in quenching flavor and quaffability.
