COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

22oz bottle poured into Trappist glass. Pours very dark copper, almost brown, with a creamy potato colored head. The smell is very sweet with a definite floral component. Taste is basically your normal IPA, but with tons of hops, both for flavoring and bittering. Hops, hops hops. Id expect nothing less from Stone

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 An American amber ale with an extra kick. Bitter and aggressive hop profile. Lots of pine and an herbal quality. Lots of malt backbone, but still decidedly hop forward.

Dark copper color with a rusty head. Rich malt scent which is enhanced with the presence of beautiful citrous hops. Taste is sweet caramel and bread with a slight roast characterstic, plus a powerful hop bite of brite citrus grapefruit and lemon. Very nicely balanced.

Bottle. Pours golden orange brown with a thin white head and good lacing. The taste is hoppy, but mild, fairly easy drinking with a bitter finish.

average at best. great marketing, decent beer. hops are not pleasant in this one. a good way to introduce the world to the rest of their range, which is outstanding

shoeshineboy (81) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2004
By far the most Complex and interesting beer I have ever come across. I had Drank the Ruination right before this one so my tongue was still a little puckered. I will have to drink another next week and gave a more suited review

This beer laces well. Whats lace good for, anyway? Hops taste after a first sip, but as you drink more you find other flavors, including some sweetness. One day Ill drink beers like this exclusively.

vadersnightcap (80) - SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2007
bottle as a gift! Clear ruby color with bubbly tan head that laced the glass. Pleasant malty caramel nose with a touch of citrusy hops and alcohol. The caramel malt comes out again in the flavor along with some cherry and grape candy. Hop bitterness lasts from start to finish. does exactly what it says on the tin!

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Bottle from Andonicos Market. The bottle design is awesome- be sure to read the label. Aroma is complex and inviting, with malt, hops, and even citrus. Pours beautiful deep red with nice lacing and frothy head. Full syrupy body and medium carbonation fill the palate, followed by an impressively well-balanced and loud symphony of hops, bread, nuts, and a hint of chocolate. Alcohol hides in the background. Finish is long and detailed, with lingering hops and bitter grain. This is an impressive and thoroughly enjoyable beer. Its complex, well-balanced, and even unpredictable. A personal favorite.
