3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had this right after the Surly Syx, and I think because it didn’t have the woods that that beer had, I was primed to see it as less complex. It’s darker, and the nose is bountiful (Citra is a great hop, I’m loving the trend), but for the flavor there was a little more musty/grassy quality. (Am I crazy to think there’s a little spaghetti bolognese in this?) Very good. Bottle.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA
Aroma: Very piney, medicinal candy... almost pine sol as it warms
Taste: Taste is rich marmalade, medicinal maltiness, nasal burn and then mellow warming in the chest
Overall: Not my favorite thing from Stone...the aroma here is way too astringent / chemical cleaner. The flavor is thick and marmalade-y...but the chemical notes are surprising. Could work as a VapoRub remedy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 650ml bottle on 19/8/2016. Pours a clear deep golden with a small to medium head. For something so big, the aroma is pretty subdued, though I am suffering a bit of a cold at the moment. There’s some caramel and light earthy, fruity hops, but it’s all quite subtle, Take a sip and it’s an entirely different story. There is a real intensity and length to it that makes itself known immediately. There’s a big malt presence (caramel and biscuit), some pronounced sweet citrus, tropical and stone fruit sweetness, which is bludgeoned by a massive, camphorous, resiny, herbal, tongue coating bitterness which somehow manages to convince you you’re drinking something even stronger than 10.8%. This is a very dry, almost mediciinal experience - a chewy, oily sipper, which is not an easy quaffer. Challenging and flavour packed, yet a little difficult to truly fall in love with. Definitely a memorable experience none the less.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from beer junction. Pretty malty and at less than 50 days it seems as if it it turning to more of a barleywine. It’s a great concise IPA. But more malt than hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. The forest floor again. This time even more extreme and really well balanced. Palate lasts and tastes finally. Nice.
