COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

"Youíre Not Worthy" - I most certainly am not. Damn, this one deserves a special rant. As I glare at Satan on the bottle, I cannot help but smile. The title in itself is excellent, it encapsulates my entire personality in two words. So thereís a special connection right there. Extremely strong and bitter but with such elegance / grace. As I drink beneath the bottleneck, I cannot help but notice the complexity. Upbeat hoppy and sweet flavors initially dominate, with dark chocolate overtones bombarding the palate afterwards. Haha, through the halfway point, I turn the bottle around and read the back, and it provides an ignorant comment to the non-sophisticated beer drinkers of the world. Good stuff. It honestly gets better as you get to the bottom. More hard and more dark, but never lets the alcohol intrude upon the rich flavoring. An excellent beer, throughly enjoyed, one that will be definitely sought after in the near future.

Pours deep mahogany with light tan head. Nose is of fresh cirtus, hops and a hint of malt. Flavors are creamy, slightly toffeish but with a mild string of alcohol notes. A marvelous beer. AS it warms to room temperature, the flavors become more pronounced. Nice finish.

Well done. Liked the rich malty aroma. Definitely not a session beer for me.

Bottle. Mahogany brown with reddish hues. Medium head with a light tan color. Aroma of hop oils. Taste is more of the same, much more but with the perfect amount of malt to offset the intense hops Long, delicious hops aftertaste for about a week.

Nice murky appearance with a nice head. Aroma was very nutty. The first sip was somewhat decieving. I tasted nothing but hops and was quite dissappointed. Then once I had a few sips I could taste the biter nutty flavors that are in this beer. Was pleased all the way around.

Im just guessing on the aroma...canít smell today. Wonít come up with any details like you see in wine magazines...like tasting 18 different flavors. Itís just a damn good drink.

RateBeer? I donít get it. Shouldnít it be called RateAle. Does Stone Brew make beer now. That would be an absolute travisty. Anyhow... I was looking at how some of the "wussies" describe ABA... like itís some kind of cheap wine. Check it out. Iíve been drinking ABA since 1998. There is nothing "fruity" or "sweet" about it. It taste like it was filtered through an old sock and I wouldnít have it any other way. ABA F#@king ROCKS! There is no way to really describe it. You must try it or you wonít have a clue. I must say... if you donít like it itís only because your wussy tastebuds canít handle it. Go grab a bottle of "light" beer and cleanse your pallet you wuss! Youíre not worthy!

No one advertises better or more smartly, than Stone. Lucky for them, their products are that good! This is a terrific IPA that deserves to be called ARROGANT. Citrusy, perfectly balanced, hoppy, delicious. Hard to explain the taste and mouthfeel, because they seem to change from second to second. Go get some!

Draft, Falling Rock Tap House. Dark ruby coloured beer with a thin meniscal layer of tan bubbles over the surface. Lovely caramel, cookie dough, and vanilla malty flavor backs up an assertive grapefruit-citrus hop aroma. Flavour is fantastic, sweet toffee and caramel malts on the front fading to a strong alcoholic warming character before the citrusy and earthy herbal hops flavours make an appearance. These fade out leaving an awesome bitter kick in the teeth. As this beer warmed, you got even more citrus hop character and some spicy and fruity maltiness on the nose. Truly a first rate beer. My wife ordered it again, and again, and again.....
