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.

My first Stone beer.....thought it was way too hoppy the first time I drank it (I guess the label was right), but for some reason I came back to it and liked it much more the second time (and third, and fourth, and....). One of the hoppiest beers I’ve had, true to Stone’s style. Deep orange/red color, a bit spicy, but a good balance of malt too. Very good, especially at $4/bomber.

22 oz bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown. A toasty caramel aroma with spices and citrus. Quite bitter with some sweetness. A very good, complex beer- the more I drink it, the better it gets.

Pours Medium Dark red-orange amber with 2 finger lite brown foarmy head. sparse lacing. Smell is mildly floral and fruity, malts, hops. Taste is Bid biting bitter Hops up front with the malts and fruity sweet esters taking a back seat. Medium body, medium carbonation, Hops bite and dryness with some alcohol warmth. If you like Big Hops buy this. The malts and sweet esters and citrus come out more as it warms, I like hops as my rating shows!

Pour amber, very pretty and appetizing. Thin head that lasts. Smells floral to me and keeps getting better as it warms.

Can, served in teku. Pours light ruby with beige, rocky head. Nice retention. Aroma consists mostly of caramel, some nuts and toffee, not too intensive. Interesting taste, malty and caramel in the beginning, but then quickly comes bitterness punch, mostly herbal and grass hints. Long and hoppy finish. Nice beer, but taste is surprisingly overwhelmed by bitterness, which makes it rather boring, could be more balanced.

A huge beer. Either you’re going to love it or hate it. If you’re an IPA fan, you’ll probably enjoy it. Coppery aroma, with tart citrus

Of the 4 beers I had this night, this was the least memorable, in fact....im probably going to have to give it another go just to be fair. But I remember all of the others had, this one just seemed to be the most forgettable. Just making this rating so I remember I have to try it again.

A dark brownish red color, with a slightly off white medium sized head. Smell is sweet, nutty, and alcoholic. Tastes grassy and hoppy with a bitter finish. Great brew! Refreshing and complex.

Smells like plenty of hops with a hint of coffee and citrus, and has great flavor ... smooth, with a very bitter finish...
