Beautiful blonde color with creamy head. Nice lacing and a gentle hoppy aroma. Balanced full flavor without being overwhelming. Really amazing beer.

Draft. Pours golden yellow with small white head. Smell is very floral, earthy hops, orange peel. Taste follows with almost a old grapefruit notes, grassy, lemon notes. Tasty!

Lingering off-white head on hazy golden orange. Big, bright lemon and orange rind nose. Sweet hops on the tongue with smooth bitterness. More citrus zest. Crisp, dry finish. Solid beer. Another proper Stone offering.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one pours an ultra clear polished gold with a one finger bright white head. That pour is CLEAN. The nose is very clean and very hoppy, featuring loads of German hops. It smells like a super hopped pils. It drinks like one too. It’s light in body and drinks über crisp. The hop level is perfect. Stone did a great job showcasing German hops. I’m a German pils fan and this beer was spectacular. The 9.5% was well restrained as well. This is the best Stone Anny since the 12th. Pick it up while its fresh!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent, but underwhelming. A definitely unusual hop presence gives off a strong liquorice tone and a surprisingly mellow bitterness on the finish. I like that it’s a strong IPA that isn’t an all out assault, but the overall flavor is somewhat one-dimensional. I’d certainly have it again, but it’s nothing too special.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Pineapple and tangerine with a subtle floral note that I cant place because I am not that knowledgable about flowers. Appearance: beautiful and clear light gold. Head retention is terrible, though, otherwise this would be a five. Taste: pineapple and dank grass give way to light notes of black pepper, soft alcohol. Palate. Crisp and not as oily as Id expect for a pretty hoppy beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden, slightly hazy, finger thick white head, nice lacing. Aroma big noble hops, sweet pilsen malt, fruity esters. Taste bitter spicy noble hops, then the slight sweetness of pilsen malt shows up, then more spicy, peppery, slight onion hops. Mouth feel is on the thin side of medium body, good carbonation, very spicy, dry finish. Overall very good, unlike anything I?ve had, well made and very interesting.

Out of bottle. Pours a very clear golden amber. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is very different. Its an ipa of sorts but just different enough that it makes you do a double take. Good beer nonetheless.

Bomber pours a hazy golden orange with thin lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and citrus hops. Spicy hop flavor lingers with a bitter finish. Very tastey.
