12 oz bottle. Better than I was expecting, even as a fan of Stone. Beautiful aroma of grapefuit, citrus, and seemingly raisins. The flavor is very full for a 4.4% It’s subtle, but complex, and very similar to the aroma. Another winner from Stone.

A dark reddish amber pour that produced a tan head that was both big and thick. Smooth at first, then the hoppy bite comes through. A light medium body. It wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t bad either.

Pour from bottle, deep amber with short lived off white head. Citrusy but on the dark side I did not like it a lot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This liquid poured a dark red-amber with a light, soapy, white head. The aroma is dusty, peppery, rye with no body. Small amounts of lacing on the glass, and very sticky. The palate is thin as well, no body and the taste is bitter, unpleasant and a little salty. I’m am really disappointed in this offering from Stone; it is only disagreeable with no redeeming qualities at all.

12oz bottle - Ruby/amber color and makes a small white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with citrus hoppiness and lightly roasted. Taste starts out with a hoppy spice and finishes with a roasted malt character. Nicely balanced. Thin and smooth palate.

Deep, dark ruby/chestnut brown color with dark golden orange hues. Smells like some bitter pine hops. Tastes like pine hops, not super bitter, quickly followed by roasted malts.
