This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

This beer just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe I have something against hype, as this beer is hyped a lot, but it just tastes harsh and unpleasant to me. Sorry, guys. I do like your IPA quite well, however.

You are not worth it, truth be told no one is. It is quite strong, maybe just a bit bitter. But be aware that you should have just a little bit, after more than one there is high risk of having a bad next day.

Taste: rich, smooth, malty, roasted flavors balance well with just the right amount of hops for this style. Mildly spice malt nose. Deep mahogany/copper hue, mostly clear, with a tan head and some lace. Medium/full body. Very drinkable.

Flasche in den USA und jetzt auch 0,5l Dose aus Berlin. Braun kastanienfarbenes klares Bier, schöne Kohlensäurebläschen an der Glaswand. Brauner hoher Schaum. Toffe, Malz, Karamel und Hopfen in der Nase. Dazu etwas reifer Käse. Der Antrunk ist ein Schlag ins Gesicht. Wuchtig bittere Kräuter. Viel Hopfen. Hat was von Fernet Branka. Dazu Malz und verbranntes Karamell. Langes extrem bitteres Finish. Eisenkraut. Dieses Bier war eines meiner ersten Craftbiere, dass ich 1998 in den USA getrunken habe. Es ist bis heute eines meiner Lieblinge. Es mag bessere geben, aber den ersten Craftbeer Geschmack vergesse ich nie! Toll, dass es das jetzt auch frisch aus Deutschland gibt. Go Stone!

Caramel and pines in aroma - nice! Red-ish colour, nice head (a bit too big while pouring). Intense caramel taste, malty. Excellent IPA, must-taste!

Aromas of caramel, lots of it. Pours a hazy dark brown with pillowy head. Taste of toast and caramel and dough. Really great.

Phenomenal really. There is berry, there is Hops, there is caramel malts, and when they all blend together it just works. Really like it. Good beer.

I discovered this gem about a dozen years ago, in a restaurant in Oakland. To be honest, I ordered it because the name intrigued me. What I soon realized, however, was that it was a great beer. I went out the next day in search for some to bring home. While it’s not my everyday drinker, I always keep it on hand for those occasions when I want something special.
