COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Stone 08.08.08 Vertical Epic Ale is a Strong Golden Belgian style ale highly hopped with American hops (Ahtanum, Amarillo and Simcoe). The beer pours pale golden with a thick and creamy white head of foam. The aroma is full of depth: nuances of pepper, clove, and banana from the Belgian yeast strain, and the resiny citrus notes from the American hops blend together nicely to provide a complex aromatic character. The taste is spicy, hoppy and fruity, with a very dry and a pleasant bitter end. The bitterness lingers nicely, and provides a refreshing finish that leads you to want to drink more and more of this beer!

This is the best of the Verticals. Others were too bitter and horrible finishes. This seems to be the lightest of the group.

22 oz Bottle from local retailer. Pours gold with medium head and slightly cloudy. Initial taste is very spicy - nutmeg and clove. Quite hoppy as well. WOW is all I can say. Was going to save some for my wife but...
