Stone Brewing Company Exalted IPA American IPA at 7% ABV | 68 IBU (US$2.09 at Specs Main Houston, 355 ml, packaged on 16-Jan-2018, acquired 3-Mar-2018, reviewed 4-Mar-2018)

Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of rocky pale ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: bright citrus, resiny pine, light caramel, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5)

Nice. Solid example of Citra hops, with a light floral backing that I’m attributing to the Loral hops. (I’m not overly familiar with Loral, so that’s a bit of speculation on my part.) Nothing earth-shattering, but decent enough. (16/20)
