Fort Wayne event. The fourth brew of the day. This brew poured a small head of finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a hazy light brown colored semi-hazy body. The aroma was a medium strength hoppy one and its mouthfeel was tingly from the hops. The flavor was also all hops and some spice. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2008

From old tasting notes back when this one was fresh. Sampled from a 22 oz bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large tan head. The aroma was strong sweetish fruity hops. The flavor was all about the fruity hops but with an underlying harshness that put me off a bit. Very one dimensional and this one did not really stand out to me.

ANother awesomely hopped beer from stone. Terribly hoppy nose with acrid bitters. Wonderfully complex beer that is fascinatingly balanced and smooth. Full round flavor. Silky smooth and a good beer all around. Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2003
I know its an APA but in many ways it hit me in such a way as I thought it was an IPA. Full amber color. Heavy IBU. 3 hrs later I could still taste the hops.

Orange/golden color, hazy, mostly opaque at first then clearing; little head. Mint tea aroma, with some caramel. Moderate hopping. Curiously watery. Thanks Nuffield for sharing! (oh wait, that’s me.) Smacky (71) - San Clemente, California, USA - DEC 5, 2004
I love all Stone Ales, but this one probably the least. I had it on tap at the 7th Anniversary Open House and in bottle. Color was ok, and although the palate was nice - it is rather smooth for such a hoppy brew - I was a little confused by the combination of citrus and caramel. I think I tried it on cask, although I cannot be sure. I did a mixed taster with this and IPA, and that was yummy. My friends loved it more than I, so I think it will be more popular with some people than others. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
(on bottle)(on bottle) Had this baby a bit too warm, so...Earthy, lightly rotten + some a snag of strawberries; cool. Very malty beer and a tad too sweet, like a heavy bock. Slightly burning finish, in all the sugarness. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Consumed January 2007. More than 3 years old. Matte melon orange color with a thin white head of lace. Aroma is sweet and malty with just a touch of matured hops. This beer is past it’s prime, but still very drinkable. A touch oxidized, just a little too old. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Courtesy of kmweaver. Mostly clear amber body with a small white head. The nose is caramel, pine and citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter with grapefruit and pine hops, tons of caramel/crystal malt, ice tea and light raisins. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation and a slight astringency.
