COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone 13th Anniversary Ale pours brilliant deep red with a light tan foam. Up front, the aroma is all piney, resinous and citrus hops. Upon tasting, the hops are still on the front, and they are balanced with the malty, toffee like flavors contributed from the blend of crystal and amber malts used in the brewhouse. The finish is deliciously bitter, with a touch of warmth provided by the 9.5% alcohol. Bitterness comes in at 90+ IBU.

Bottle, 22oz. Itís a reddish brown beer, clear, and topped by a two-finger off-white head leaving curtains. Wonderful piney hops, fluor, resin and beef-stocky sweet malts. Hops dominates the flavor too, with sweet, beefstock-like malts doing the groundwork. Full-bodied, almost astringently bitter, and slightly sticky form the sweetness. Lasting, bitter finish. My favorite teenager so far. 091107

Leighton (13836) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2009
Really delicious and deep. Had a glass on tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a dark, ruby red. Nose of hops and sweet fruits. Flavor is complex: nice hop presence along with some roasted maltiness with notes of caramel and toffee. Warming mouthfeel with the decent ABV. Finish is sweet and slightly bitter. Great beer.

Clear dark ruby color, small tan head. Sticky cut grass hoppyness and dry yeast. Citrusy hoppy, bready malts, licorice and alcohol. Aftertaste is pleasant, but I donít like sharp hoppyness in this beer.

2009 vintage. Hazy brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - old hops. Flavor is quite sweet and very bitter. Dry and very bitter finish. 100412

A: The color is more brown than anything, but it does have a definite reddish tint. Not much head, but off-white in color, and excellent lacing. S: Hops, a lot of them. Tons of citrus, and it just smells bitter. A few extra sniffs gives a bit of a malt finish to the nose. T: A lot more balanced than the scent would indicate. Of course, there are tons of hops in this bad boy, lots of citrus (again) and bitterness on the front with a nice smooth, malty finish. A bit of lingering bitterness and a bit of heat. M: Full bodied, not much carbonation. D: Despite the hoppiness and high ABV, itís quite drinkable. Not something you could drink all day, but very tasty.

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Pours a dark reddish copper with a three-finger tan head. Lots of citrus and floral hops. Near full bodied with lots of soft carbonation. Flavor is smooth roast, almost brown, malt with a lot of citrus and resin bitter. Quite malty, but thereís a lot of hop bitter to balance. And I think it is balanced. Finishes bitter with detectable heat.
