4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Batch 12.21.12... picked up out of state thanks Nick! Getting resin, grapefruit and some other sort of tropical... maybe mango? Smells fantastic. Pours a clear orange will a slight head. Taste follows and I get the grapefruit and mango(?) upfront. Slightly bitter, really easy drinking for 9%. Would definitely seek out again!
Batch 05.17.13 bottled on 04/12/13 drank on 04/21/2013. Again, heavy tropical fruit scents and pretty much everything I said above again. Great beer and props to Stone for keeping this going and delivering this time to my home state.

12-21-12. Its the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. Clear light amber pour with a white head. Aroma is fruity hops, pineapple. Taste is a nice malt backbone, balanced nicely with the fruity hops. Nice fruity hop aftertaste. A great beer to end it all!

Tapat Three Kings. Clear with minimal head. The most noticeable facet to me were the hops that had a distinct onion taste. It was light on the malts and they seemed to be pale. This was crisp and uncomplicated. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden clear with two finger head that gives good medium to heavy lacing. Lemon lime hop aroma. Toasted malt in the background. Medium to full body with medium but soft cRbonation. Long pleasant bitter finish. Not as tongue biting as the typical stone ipa. I would say this one is better. Delicious

Aroma is pine, malts and very grassy hops. The flavor is citrus, light grapefruit, mild nutty undertones and a very long and bitter finish.

Golden yellow, clear. Generous white head. Chemical pine smell, celery, lemon. Bitter explosion that subtles down a little at the end. Yeast bread, cracker at the end as well. A little too much bite.
