Bomber pours deep clear gold with copper hues and nice bright white head. The aroma is bold with pine sap drenched apricot wedges, spicy grapefruit, floral hops and orange hard candy at the end of the draw. The taste is rich full yum with pineapple, tangelo, resiny pine-apricot, spicy hops and floral hops. It gets a bit more citrusy midway and then moves toward floral and spicy hops into the finish. It has plenty of citrus and pine hop bitterness bite to balance out the firm floral notes.

On tap at Buckeye on our way to RBSG. Pours a hazed grey to brown with a medium sized beige head. Toasty and nutty, hoppy citrus and toast. Spicy, subtle and complex. Does have a bit of a strawberry flavor, the very seedy ones. Nutty and juicy. Light alcohol, long tannins and grapefruit bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at R&H NY
Aroma rather muted for style with alcohol sowing trough, bitterness with malts.6-
Appearance hazed amber-gold with fine carbonation. Fine mid – light top, decent lace. 3+
Flavor and Palate : Full bodied. Malty body covered in fruity0leafy bitterness, tartness on walls. Mid is lip-smacking brutal bitterness. Finish reminds me of bitter vodka from Poland. Mellower with time with herbal-bitter finish. Still quiet unbalanced.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Monk’s Kettle. Pours cloudy golden with an attractive white head and a marvelous spice and yeast aroma. This is a well-balanced beer that combines sweet light malt, citrus, yeast, pine, and spice into an amalgamation of flavor. Well-done, Stone.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours a hazy straw yellow colour with a foamy white head. The nose is hay, farmyard, floral notes, straw and citrus fruits. The taste is of farmyard, biscuit, bread, lots of lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, pine and spicy ginger towards the decent bitter finish. Quite a bit lighter than I expected, especially with the % and IBU it boasts.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
200th rating for this beer and it won’t be as high as the others. 22 oz. bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with an initially large eggshell white head that fades. Stinky aroma of pine hops, sour milk, sweaty socks, grass, straw, and pale English malts. Flavor isn’t as bad, with a ton of malty sweetness, piney hops, straw, and grass. Overly sweet, and finishes bitter. Medium-bodied, with light carbonation. This seems like a misfire to me, and easily the worst Stone beer I’ve ever tried.
