COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Nice dense light beige head which lasts for a while. Very interesting aroma. Very fruity hops with hints of sweet grapefruit. I like it. Color is a dark ruby brown. Good $hit. Flavor is excellent. Perfectly balanced. Good malt backbone with a generous helping of hops. Citrus fruit present with a little bit of roasted grains. Finish is pretty bitter but not too much. More grapefruit and a nice alcohol warming. A top quality beer and one that will find a permanent home in my fridge. Bonus points for the great bottle and description. Worth buying just for that.

Dark ruby-amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma is remarkably hoppy - I was afraid to inhale too deeply lest the fumes burn out my nose hairs. The flavour is big and bitter, with some great coffee & chicory notes to balance the citric hop explosion. Long and lingering grapefruit finish. While it wasn’t quite the life-changing experience I’d been led to believe it might be, it’s still a damn fine beverage.

Very ppowerful beer! Great aroma, followed by a mulititude of flavors for the tounge. This beer ended with a wonderful bite. The bottle’s comments had me rolling on the floor.

Stone, you are my hero! Probably one of the best beers I have ever had, hands down. Body is dark amber, almost a red with about a half inch of foamy white head. Aroma is incredible. It almost made my eyes water. Hoppy to the max with some citrusy notes present as well. Taste is a well balanced hops/citrus/malt mixture that leaves an interesting sweet and sour bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. This stuff hits the nail right on the head. Aggressive indeed!

First, I gotta say, I love the comments on the bottle. Great beer with great sarcasm! Deep ruby red/orange brown coloring with strong hop aroma. Some minor alcohol in the taste but very strong good rich grapefuit hops taste and some creaminess near the end.

Aggressively hoppy. Fruity, roasted malt aroma. Bitter hop, mild toasted carmel/malt flavor. Seems a little unbalanced. Warming and chewy. Overall, pretty decent. I just wanted a little more malt strength.

This really smells like bud to me, but i really like it. A magnificent deep red color, with a nice tan head. Dry, bitter, and oh yes, hoppy.

A deep red beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and berries. The flavor is very complex with notes of cowberries, grass and enourmous amounts of hops which makes the end extremely grassy and dry. A wonderful beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this bottle.

HOPS! HOPS!!!! HOPS!!!!! A very interesting beer. Did I say hoppy, yes.. it delivers as advertised a dark red/coppery pour with a small tan head. And yes.. it tastes of hops. Not sure Id drink it again but definately worth tasting.

This is my favorite beer, after Stone’s IPA. It is EXTREMELY Hop-y. Very good aroma, very fruity. In flagstaff they have the 10th Anniversity edition, which is even better, but sadly sold out.
