3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 Reddish-orange, mostly clear (filtered?), disappearing head and light carbonation. Aroma is equal parts sugary malt, sort of like pound cake, and citric hoppiniess that is lightly acidic. The flavor profile is dominated by a pungent, sharp bitterness. There's a bit of malt sweetness here I think, but more in the needle-in-a-haystack sense. Rather harsh and reminiscent of bile. The aromatic hops are quite nice, and I'm pleasantly reminded of the Arrogant Bastard, but I find this too acidic and bitter to be all that enjoyable. I actually prefer the Ruination to this one.

Bottle in LA. Wonderful grassy, citrus aroma. A similar taste with heavy bitterness up front. All in all a classic Weat Coast IPA. Super solid, but don’t get the extraordinary adulation. There are better IPAs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Third of a litre at the Celle Bierfest, served in a Stone snifter. Brewed in Berlin.
A: Golden amber colour, slight haze, one finger sized head, moderate retention, decent amount of lacing.
S: Citrus and grapefruit, Cascade bomb.
T: Wheat, pine and grapefruit. High on bitterness but kept it subtle and balanced.
M: Low carbonation, medium body, went down well.
O: I can’t really add too much to what has already been said, but the quality of Stone beers brewed in Berlin has held up. This is a classy American IPA.
