11 mar 2012, bottle. Light amber, clear, lots of steady bubbles. Nose is just aggressive grapefruit hops and some nut brown malt. Med creamy body and mildly fizzy. Nit brown and spruce hops. Pretty nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1376) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Hazy reddish brown with a solid one-finger head, great retention and very nice lace. Sweetish brown sugar aromas with plenty of citrus and something like the smell you get when you cut the lawn early in the morning when itís still wet and the clumps of grass clog the chute and you have to stick your hand in there to clear it out. But I digress. Floral and grassy hops come forward in the flavor profile, offset by a strong caramel malt and a slight alcohol burn, and now it seems more like an American Strong Ale. Brown sugar, roasted nuts and smoky wood add to the complexity. Medium body, strong carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Very interesting, and very good effort by the collaborators.

mjg74 (2613) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle from BevMo. Strongly hopped nose with a bit of roasted maltiness. Strong hops are subdued by a little bit of sweetness coming through from the malts. Pretty good balance of hops and brown ale.

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - MAR 9, 2012
nice big head, good lacing, citrus, grapefruit, deep chocolate, slightly sweet - really balance, not sure I would call it an american strong, but then I canít offer another style. Solid beer

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Clear reddish amber hue, modest head formation. Big citrus, piney hop aroma, mild caramel. Hops are spicy on the palate with a strong grapefruit citrus in the finish. Malt is light but adds a touch of sweetness and dry nuttiness. This is a nice citrusy, hoppy brown ale, one I could drink on a regular basis.

JoeTheYounger (1155) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - MAR 8, 2012
From bottle. Brown pour with tan bubbly head. Aroma is piney and sweet with molasses. Taste is piney with a touch of citrus with almost a nutty finish. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Definitely a stone inspired brew. Damn good brown ale.

Bottle. Pours cloudy ruby with huge off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus, pine, licorice, some caramel. Spicy flavor with good bitterness and a nice malty backbone. Above average mouthfeel; nice piney finish. Quite good.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Served from a 12 oz bottle from Barronís. The appearance is a deep murky brown with a good sizes light brown head. Super hoppy nose. Lemons, tangerine, chocolate malts, and a bit of a spiciness. Great flavors. Hopped up brown sugar with chocolate undertones. The hops are floral with some resins and spice additions. A bit perfumery at times too. The hop profile really takes over the brew and pulls it away from the brown ale base but tasty all the way.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a very much hazed (outright muddy compared to most Stone beers...but that is not a complaint), medium brown hued body with a tight and some what large, off-white to tan head. Respectable lace and good retention. Aromas are of hoppy, pine, citrus, mid tropical fruit, light dank weed notes. Some dark fruit esters, strong bready malt, molasses, nutty, tobacco, earthy, mild chocolatey roast. A touch grassy. Flavors are quite bitter, grassy, earthy, nearly a touch astringent at times. Fruit forward from both hops and possibly a bit yeast. Cannot tell if this is Stoneís normal 007 (yeast) or not. Some pineapple, pine, and molasses. Very dry with a nutty roast. A clean and crisp finish. Lasting and strong bitterness that is a touch much. Nice malt complexity, grainy, bready, toasted, lightly rich without being too sweet. Overall good, and a bit old school and brash, but still a fun drink. Medium bubbles, lighter body, lasting bitter, pretty well hidden alcohol. Good.
