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.

Wow, an attack upon your taste buds. It brings a ton of hops with an interesting malt flavor. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2003 I've had this beer 1 million times..exactly..each time its been something totally and utterly different..which makes me come to one conclusion..this beer is the most inconsistent beer that i've had the motive to care about..sometimes its overly hoppy and out of balance..other times its completely balanced with nice carmelly sweet nectarine sweetness and super hoppy bitterness..sometimes its great...sometimes it sucks..I dont know what to say other than..ok.

A very deep amber/red colored beer that forms a decent head. It has an interesting flavor to it. A bit stronger than I like my beers unless theyre heavier to offset the taste of alcohl.

A hoppier version of Anchor Steam Victory Ale. Dark carmel color, chuck full of hops and alcohol content. I agree a little two dimensional, but worth a try.

Has a dark amber color and smell of hops. Taste is of hops and finishes with hoppy bitterness. Overall this stuff is pretty good, but then again I am not worthy to drink it so Stone can go screw...

Dark red in color. A strong, harsh piney aroma. The bitterness is not balanced well in my opinion, or maybe I'm just getting fed up with beers that pretend to be great through high IBUs. Assertive but not balanced right. Not a big fan of this one.

Pours a beautiful red color with a nice light tan head. Mild hoppy aroma. Strong grapefruit hoppy flavor dominates from the beginning. Very bitter. Malt detectable underneath hops. Finishes bitter also.

(bottle) Not sure where to rate this. This is one where it goes over the top... but I can't say that is bad. But I guess I take a few points off the palate, but give them back on the flavor. That pretty much sums it up.
