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.

Have enjoyed this beer many, many times on tap. Finding a fresh bottle in my area was a little trickier. Best by 04OCT12 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. Serving type: bottle 08-16-2012

(Bottle): Pours a dark amber, small off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, malt. Flavour is quite hoppy, citric and sweet. Grapefruit, lemon, peaches, malt. Nice bitterness that lingers. Not bad.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2013
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%? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HIGHB4LL (278) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: fair sized off-white head, rocky bubbles, amber-red color, slightly cloudy, great lacing. Aroma: heavy hops, medium malt, citrus, resin, roasty, nuts, grass. Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, sticky texture, bitter and long ending. Taste: starts lightly sweet, then transitions almost immediately to pretty bitter, ends nice hoppy bitter. Overall, I was really surprised by how well balanced this beer was and how hoppy it is for the style. Really enjoyable and memorable.
