This beer just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe I have something against hype, as this beer is hyped a lot, but it just tastes harsh and unpleasant to me. Sorry, guys. I do like your IPA quite well, however.

Love the attitude, unfortunately it looks like the bastard is right. For me the bitterness ends up overwhelming the promising initial taste.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 I go back and forth wether I like this or Ruination more.
RARELY does a beer come along that is new and original. Something that hasn’t been done yet. This is an aggresive beer, not for pansies. Hoppy and bitter, alcoholic and deep. Color is somewhat amber and non flattering, hiding the truth of the beer. Head holds its own. Buy this beer.

Like most Stones, prevalent hoppy taste. Mouth feel is thinner than one would imagine given aroma and appearance. Nice fruit taste to offset a good bitter experience.

Very strong beer in both falvor and aroma. Not for amateurs. High ginger aftertaste.

Bottle. Flavor is a bit overwhelming; something to save for a treat, not fo every day.

Very good but not as great as some is putting it out to be. Alcohol comes out stronger but less than it should given the 7.2% content. Heavy to the tongue, sweet and bitter Typically I can’t drink more than 1 22oz bottle without the taste becoming too overpowering. A nice shock when first drank, evne though the aroma warns you already.

Excellent beer, dark amber in color, hoppy floral aroma mixed with sweetness malt, very smooth, very hoppy flavors. "You’re not worthy" printed on the bottle cap makes it all the better. Delicious, I will definitely buy this again in a heartbeat!
