COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Hops very present almost over powering sweet maltiness takes over the more I drank this beer the more I wanted

looks, smells and tastes good. an amazing beer. even if it weren’t, you’d still want to drink it because it’s cool.

Aesir (130) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 16, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2005 A sweet initial taste that finishes with strong hops. The reverse psychology ad campaign is a little patronizing, but they’ve got a great beer to back up their arrogance. Not just a catchy name, this stuff is good. The more I come back to this the more I like it, along with all of Stone’s products. Definately one of California’s best breweries.

fruity aroma and taste with a spicy sweet finish. The farther along in the bottle I got the more I liked it.

i thought this was one awesome beer! deep amber color, very thick and frothy head on my bottle that left lacing up the entire glass. nice hoppy and mild citrus flavors. the bitterness in this beer lasts forever (almost literally), but it’s very well-balanced in my opinion.

I wasn’t ready for this one. Medium brown in color, with a bit of fizziness in a week head. First taste is an explosion in your mouth that can be unplesant if you aren’t prepared for it. Strong hop with snappy citris, coupled with a dark maltiness. Truly a taste of it’s own.

MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 Plentiful hop resins mingling with wise and chewy caramelized and bready cereals...Leafy hop bitterness develops peppery spiciness and citrus in the aftertaste...Nourishment and balance in assertive cleanliness for an engaging India Red Ale...

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 Finally got to try this one. Strong hops (duh), that to me were nicely balanced with the malts. Definitely worth getting another bottle or two.

Very good beer...hoppy, but tolerable. Very flavourful and malty.
