4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap on 4/12 for the 420 dated beer. This one delivers on the hype for me. Better than hopslam. One of if not the best smelling hoppy beers I’ve had. It feels like my nose is inside a pine tree. Dank and mossy. It’s bitterness is almost like being salty like ocean water. Interesting touch. Doesn’t really carry the stone house flavor as much as I thought but delivers in other ways.Sour notes of Orange citrus immediately after the barnyard middle flavors. Burns the mouth more than expected in a good way. Hard to drink quickly. stayed carbonated abd laced the whole time

4/20/14. Shared bomber, pint glass. Light honey color, hazy. Fresh, strong aroma of sweet citrus. Full bodied palate. Bitterness overwhelms the hops, but very enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 On draft. Dark gold color with little head. Amazing aroma of fresh grapefruit. Taste is bittersweet and full of citrus, pine. Slightly boozy and bitter aftertaste. Such a terrific beer.

Enjoyed at hopfields in Austin. My first enjoy by on tap. This may not have been the best to start with, but that criticism isn’t too be as harsh as it comes across.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A strong aroma of reisling grapes and floral hops with a touch of citrus. Appears a copperish gold, some white lace. Taste starts a bit piney, but not overwhelming, fades into mild grapefruit bitterness, but is followed by a gentle sweet floral flavor, balanced and beautiful! Palate is lively, nice. Overall, wow! This is a great beer!

04/20/14 variant. Big, Bold, Beautiful, IPA true to the style, this batch a bit sweeter than the last. Still Raining Grapefruit, Pine, Resin, Hops on the palate. Just had a stronger malt backbone to me. #2 favorite style behind PtE. Stone does beer right. We who are about to drink this salute you...
