Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - SEP 10, 2013
On tap at Stone World Bistro. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is awesome, noticeably hoppy with lots of citrus fruit including peaches, apricots, and mangos; slight pine and earth notes too. Taste is sweet throughout with a slowly intensifying bitterness that is not entirely overpowering. Creamy mouth feel, medium body, and good carbonation. Overall an exceptionally nice IPA.

Draught at Liberty Station. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is fresh earthy, minty and woody hops with cereal and toast malt. Flavor is moderate minty, woody and herbal hops and bitterness with light toast malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

October 25th, 2013 - The Burton Snatch is unique, and to San Diego, foreign. There’s a particular hops character here, and I can see it being quite unwelcome in a part of the country addicted to citrus, stinging hops. The smell reminds me a lot of Lay’s potato chips - lightly greasy and salty, with an added layer of caramelization, like a banana flambé. The flavor is slightly sweet, with notes of corn bread with a honeyed glaze, and a lighter palate: unique and good. Going against the grain here, but this is a refreshing change of pace from the typical hop cone to the eye.

Perhaps the worst Stone beer ever. Smells nasty and dirty. Pale golden color with strong white head. An earthy, light IPA...really just not good tasting?

"Herbal and earthy, yes...also with a little bit of pee character in there. Not necessarily a bad thing, just saying. Not a big fgan of English IPAs, but this is hoppy enough to be pretty nice."

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
On my third and last flight of the afternoon at The Liberty Station on 17th March 2014. Beer Card stated 8.2% ABV. Golden with a white head that soon dispersed to a collar and wisp. Slight hop aroma with odd fruit and veg smells, not what I want to smell in a beer. Luckily the taste wasn’t like a mixed bag of produce from the grocery store. The hops rule the flavours with mild citrus notes to the fore becoming more bitter towards the end of each sip. Hides the alcohol well considering it’s body depth and lack of maltiness within it’s make up. OK more than ’great’ and the only Stones beer I had on the day that didn’t get my taste buds excited.

Even the best cannot hit a home run every time. This beer was a failure not due to any glaring flaws but because it tried to do too much. Rather than being a West Coat hop bomb or an English style pale ale it feel into some awkward middle ground. The result? A forgettable release that was soon put aside.

Aroma / Appearance - Minimal carbonation bubbles inside the coppery liquid core. Salty sourdough bread, day old compost, and other slightly unappealing aspects would not have been terrible on their own. Put together though it is like a hop experiment gone horribly wrong.

Flavor / Palate - Vegetal stale tastes stick to the palate like leftover rice in a Chinese food container. Stale bread and lemons help derail a promising sounding description. The glaring flaws eventually make it easy to set this aside and order another sample. Toned down it would be great. Amped up it might work. Setting right in the middle it is just a mess.

[ Tap ][ Stone Liberty Station ][ 5oz ][ Red Wine Taster ][ $2 ][ 2/2/14 ]
>> Clear golden pour, spotty White lacing. Somewhat onion nose and light skunk. Moves to squashy noble hop, honeydew, lemon, fresh biscuit, fresh malt grist. Taste is hoppy, grassy, clean. Long bitter grassy and nutty finish with lemon acid. Liked this one.

On tap @ Stone Liberty Station. Clear straw pour with a white head. Slight fruitiness of blueberry and lemon peel. Cake, some bread, corn, and some sugar. Lightly earthy and spicy. Flavor has a nice sweetness of bread and lemon cake. Some berry fruitiness, orange, and a lot of pine and earthy hops. Alright.
