COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stone 13th Anniversary Ale pours brilliant deep red with a light tan foam. Up front, the aroma is all piney, resinous and citrus hops. Upon tasting, the hops are still on the front, and they are balanced with the malty, toffee like flavors contributed from the blend of crystal and amber malts used in the brewhouse. The finish is deliciously bitter, with a touch of warmth provided by the 9.5% alcohol. Bitterness comes in at 90+ IBU.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Clear ruby ale with a mid-sized, off-white head. The aroma offers lots of caramel and earthy hops. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Hoppy as Hell and very warm. The flavor is all about robust toffee, alcohol and an imperious measure of piney, grapefruity hop bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish. Another arrogant, overbearing, world class IPA from the folks at Stone!

Hopheads rejoice!! Pours a nice dark brown/red color. Small head. Aroma is hoppy as hell! Floral and citrus hops. Lots of grass too. Big beer. Hops bite you throughout the beer but there is just enough malt to make this a real treat. Stone does it right...yet again!

DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Pours turbid deep brownish copper with 3-finger off-khaki head. Nose is heavy caramel malt, earthy, piney hops, tangerine, feety Simcoey wafts. Tastes rich, caramel malty, with earthy, resiny hops, brown sugary notes, figgy fruit notes. Very complex, very rich and hefty on the tongue, with more late pineapple and tangerine, but a solid malt bill that stays with the hops well. The repour has floaties, and this one finishes like a hybrid IIPA/barleywine. Another very solid effort from Stone, but this one will knock lighweights on their asses and send them crying for their mommas.

BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap at Toronado. Very deep red-brown pour. Big foamy white head. Aroma is resin, pine, caramel, and hop. Taste is very creamy and malty, caramel and malty. Fantastic.

DuffMan (10429) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Haven’t enjoyed a good Stone brew in a while, so we were really looking forward to this one. Pour a gorgeous dark red-orange, hazy, with a thick creamy almond head that retains until the finish and leaves ropy lace all the way down the glass. It looks like perfection in a glass. Aroma is very rich and toasty, lots of sweet malt and spicy fruity hops. Very enticing! Flavours of burnt toffee (crust of creme brulee), tangerine peel, resin, subtle sweet spices. Chewy and full-bodied. Awesome bitter finish. LOVED IT!

22 oz. bottle shared by Danny. Pours a clear deep reddish copper color with a creamy medium sized beige head. The nose has some sweet caramel malts, but is all about the hops. Citrus and floral and pine (Oh my) have me wondering what’s next. The flavor does have a base of the moderately sweet caramel malt, but again the hops take over. Citrus and pine resin add flavor and also lend to the bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky. I enjoyed this (July 09) and will try one again soon for comparison.

jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
2008-08-07. Red brown body with a modest tan head. (3+) Big hoppy aroma, leafy, resiny hops. Good amount of bitterness, green leafy hops in the flavour. Supportive malt is muted, but its there. Smooth average plus palate is creamy. Alcohol is less prominent than it could be at 9.5, which is appreciated. Pretty solid. Yumm! Bottle, Shared at Derek’s by sstackho

KyotoLefty (10263) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
Draught at the Horse Brass. Dark brown with a huge red tint and a sliver of lace. Fruity gumball aroma with cherry and chewy malt flavor. Fragrant and complex with huge bitterness coming very late. I’m not usually so impressed by Stone, but this was great.
