3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into tulip glass a orange copper color with lumpy white head that dissipated into a thin sheet. Plenty of lacing on glass. Aroma was a grapefruit but muted there was a pineapple note. There was malt and some caramel. Taste was a malty grapefruit and a bitter finish. Spice grew with the beer warming. Aftertaste was spice turning grapefruit. Not my favorite Stone but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
May 21st, 2014 - All kinds of collaboration names and co-conspriators on this one, and I recognize too few of them. But the beer is full of familiar tastes. It is mildly sweet, and a little nutty, but predominantly filled with caramel and honey, and all of it a smell that suggests I rein in the sip, anticipating a hefty dose of sugars. But the flavor has a bit of bitterness to it, alongside star fruit and kiwi, introducing a foretaste filled with sugar. There’s a long bubble gum and starburst flavor, too, which I find pretty nice, if just a tad too sweet.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated on 7-19-2015 (Bottle) The appearance of this beer is a medium sized smooth off-white head that mostly diminished, golden transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and there is one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine hops,, tropical fruits, earthy, and berries. The flavor is moderately bitter, sweet, citrus, pine hops, tropical fruits, coriander, and spicy. The mouthfeel of this beer is moderate carbonation and this beer is light bodied. A very drinkable beer that is not overly hoppy tasting for the style. It is a beer with a very good flavor and it is well worth trying. This is a beer that I would definitely partake in again as it is another well brewed beer by Stone.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the back of the fridge, sadly not fresh. Orange with gross-looking foamy head. Smells perfumy and fruity- and cereally. Sweet & plasticy with a mild bitterness at the finish. That final note actually tastes pretty good and complex, I hope that’s what it tastes like when it’s fresh. But now its too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of bitter mild citrus mild caramel and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally rated on 6/9/14. A hazy, deep, orange to copper colored body with a thin, foamy, off-white head that leaves some ringed lace bands around the glass. Aromas of sweet tropical fruit, berries, orange peel, hop resin, and toasty malts. Flavors are berry and tropical fruit forward, with a tangy sweet and resinous undertones. The body is medium with a resinous and tangy fruit sweet aftertaste. Overall a rather nice beer, especially the aroma.
