Pours a dull medium brown with a filmy and persistent head. Lovely nutty aroma, and a lovely taste. Hazelnuts with lemon zest followed by a generous hopping. Depth of flavor in the aftertaste. Is this really only 4.4%?

Have enjoyed this beer many, many times on tap. Finding a fresh bottle in my area was a little trickier.

Pours an inviting hazelnut with some light tan foam etching the surface. Nose pulls give me hints of orange and lemon zests, light malts, hints of cola and tea. Flavor is yummy english like malts and plenty of citrusy hops. The citrus cannot be understated in this one for me - it’s really on the back end when I breath: nice orange rinds with some hints of grapefruit. The malts are pekoe in character. The beer is carried in a medium weight with lively carb and a wet finish. Nice beer - really drinkable and I wish Stone would can this one.

initial reaction was it was way too fruity but the aftertaste was wonderfully bitter and the overall experience was good. this won’t be a beer i seek out but it was nice enough.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark red with fair amount of tan head. Appears well carbonated. Smells very hoppy. I taste tones of roasted malts and hops, along with citrusy goodness.

Pours deep amber with a thin white head. Malt and citrus aroma. Grapefruit and pine resin taste with less bitterness than might be expected.

Copper pour with a 2cm light tan head. Aroma is a lot of citrus and pine. Taste is caramel, toasty, with nice citrus note and reasonably strong bitterness.

Hop forward amber beer. Hops add nice citrus notes to the solid malt backbone. Tasty stuff

fin duft af malt, man kan lige ane en smule humle bag maltsødme,
Smag: smag af malt og en fin kan af humle, en fin eftersmag af karamel malt
