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.

You could tell this beer is made from high quality ingredients. It poured and looked great in the glass. I just could not get past the pine needle taste.

Nice very dark red color with generous white head. Aroma of hops, toffee, and alcohol. Malty, hoppy flavor with very prominent alcohol. Very disjointed, chaotic flavors: just tons of flavors and booze crammed together with little finesse or balance. Just ícause it tastes A LOT doesnít mean it tastes GOOD. 22oz bottle.

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!

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 This is impressive. Very nice, almost citrus smell. Dark reddish brown really looks nice. The flavor is somewhat hard to describe, although it is somewhat bitter. Slight chocolate, caramel, and hops. Poured from a bottle it has a diminishing head and kinda lost its fizz pretty quickly at least for me, but overall very good!

I LOVE Stone brew, but this one is just awful in my opinion. I really didnít like it. It was just too much. Too much hop, too much malt, too much alcohol. I felt like I was drinking rubbing alcohol with intense hoppy flavor. It did smell good though. I donít think I am some sort of wuss, but I just donít understand this beer. There is just too much going on to actually enjoy it.

Thank you, Stone, for delivering this assault on the masses. This is one of the best examples of why it is better to be alive now than prior to the rise of the microbrew. Future generations should be grateful for this delicious beverage.

While this beer is too hoppy for me to drink on every occasion itís perfect when Iím in the mood for it.

Bottled from local supermarket in Oregon. A very nice beer, drinks well, good taste and aroma. My only complaint would be that it is perhaps a little too forward with the alcohol, but not enough to spoil the experience.

The malt (melanoiden)flavor is quite overwhelming but is backed up by plenty of hops a great session beer
