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.

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 ’cause it tastes A LOT doesn’t 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!

This is very good. No. Great. Nice deep red/brown/orange color. Well balanced with sweetness and bitterness. Citrus with a strong spruce/pine overtone. Very woody. Undertones of warm brown sugar. Very strong, yet calm and collected character.

A garrafa, o rotulo e o próprio nome da cerveja são essenciais e fazem parte da degustação! Mas, quando você serve e sente os aromas é que se percebe que a Stone Brewing realmente está certa em relação ao que é dito no rotulo.. O aroma é forte e traz notas de torrefação, um leve toque de baunilha, notas de algum tipo de madeira, enfim, o aroma assusta! E no sabor...o amargor é intenso! Ele traz também um dulçor leve/médio, notas de torrefação, açúcar queimado, e já no retrogosto o amargor domina, continuando por muito tempo com este gosto amargo, o que é uma delicia! No geral, realmente não é para quem não entende, mas ela é espetacular! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For me, this comes far too close to an IPA. Has a pretty hoppy taste,can really taste the alcohol in my opinion and it is a bit heavy in consistency. Has a great hoppy, floral aroma.

Aroma of caramel roasted barley, toasted perfectly by hephaestus himself. Appearance matches the color of the bottle perfectly. Taste is near zenith. Palate is exceptional. Best beer tasted ever.

This beer has a great taste to start but leaves a less desirable finish. Great aroma but wished the beer tased as good as the smell
