Enjoyed from bottle at Rockwellís in Chicago, IL on a humid warm night prior to an international trip. Appearance is a very cloudy vibrant amber with a rich white head, in the dark light, looks like a potion. Aroma mostly hoppy with grapefruit notes, also pretty malty, has a really great balance where both elements are equally prominent. Taste is just outstanding, rich, flavorful, bitter without compromising smoothness of the style. I get the molasses a bit, but it blends nicely and its sweetish, not too sweet. Really enjoy this one.

Bottle from North court in medina, nose is hoppy taste is hoppy and finish is syrupy and lingers.. Cool? Yes but not worth 24 a sixer

Zeswaft (1388) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Brown-amber color with off-white head. Very piney and resinous hops in the nose and flavor. Kind of tastes like an adhesive. Almost the exact same flavor profile as every other new Stone IPA derivative. A little boozy for 7%. Mouthfeel is a little lacking. High carbonation but a little thin. Nuttiness only comes through about 15 seconds after the finish.

daknole (9401) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Brown pour with a creamy beige head. Aroma has nice cookie, caramel and some background pine notes. Flavor is a nice blend of resinous hops, caramel, graham crackers. Good stuff.

iowaherkeye (2694) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
12oz bottle at Olive Tree in OB a week or so ago, canít remember the price. Clear reddish brown with a 1/2 finger beige head, fair retention. Floral hops dominate the nose with moderate sweet orange rinds, dry nuts and light sweet caramel. A bit grassy once it warmed. Flavor follows suit with stronger and less sweet rinds, still plenty of floral notes. Moderate toasty notes and fairly light caramel. Finishes dry with a bit of toastiness, bitterness peaked at a 4, no trace of alcohol noted. Didnít notice the house Stone yeast here, which was nice. Smooth creamy low carbonation with a medium body. Pretty tasty.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Caramel, toast, nutty malt notes on top of medium assertive citrus hops on the nose. Stone house yeast notes for sure. Rather fruity as it warms really. Pours hazy brown, nice lasting head and lace. The flavor is bright and hoppy, juicy with citrus, juicy fruit gum, toasted malts, nuts, caramel, and toffee. More fruity hops round out and linger in the finish. Really solid shit here. Boom.

baraciisch (1968) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Brown in color with a citrus hop aroma... Flavor is caramel malts, nuts like a typical brown, but with a prevalent citrus hop character and bitterness on the palate.... Excellent brown, definitely my kind of brown...

alexanderj (3331) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle; poured a cola-ish brown with a large beige head. Aroma of brown malt, caramel, citrus, orange, and sugary candy. Really liked the aroma. Flavor not as good, but it was good. Flavor had more of a pine/earthy presence, balanced with a bit of alcohol, sweetness, and caramel. Aroma was great, overall beer was good.

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Pours a murky brown (imagine that), with a good tan head. Citrus hops layered over butter toffee on the nose, with some ripe fruit in back. Flavor is far more powerful than Iíd anticipated -- this reminds me of Arrogant Bastard (got to be at least a bit of Stone influence in there). Lots of hops add a lingering bitterness, but thereís enough sweetness in here to take them off the pedestal for a bit. Brown sugar / molasses notes come through more in the finish. Tasty, but not for the faint of heart.
