On tap at Stone World Bistro. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is awesome, noticeably hoppy with lots of citrus fruit including peaches, apricots, and mangos; slight pine and earth notes too. Taste is sweet throughout with a slowly intensifying bitterness that is not entirely overpowering. Creamy mouth feel, medium body, and good carbonation. Overall an exceptionally nice IPA.

October 25th, 2013 - The Burton Snatch is unique, and to San Diego, foreign. There’s a particular hops character here, and I can see it being quite unwelcome in a part of the country addicted to citrus, stinging hops. The smell reminds me a lot of Lay’s potato chips - lightly greasy and salty, with an added layer of caramelization, like a banana flambé. The flavor is slightly sweet, with notes of corn bread with a honeyed glaze, and a lighter palate: unique and good. Going against the grain here, but this is a refreshing change of pace from the typical hop cone to the eye.

Perhaps the worst Stone beer ever. Smells nasty and dirty. Pale golden color with strong white head. An earthy, light IPA...really just not good tasting? slowrunner77 (12133) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2014
"Herbal and earthy, yes...also with a little bit of pee character in there. Not necessarily a bad thing, just saying. Not a big fgan of English IPAs, but this is hoppy enough to be pretty nice." BlackHaddock (7404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
On my third and last flight of the afternoon at The Liberty Station on 17th March 2014. Beer Card stated 8.2% ABV. Golden with a white head that soon dispersed to a collar and wisp. Slight hop aroma with odd fruit and veg smells, not what I want to smell in a beer. Luckily the taste wasn’t like a mixed bag of produce from the grocery store. The hops rule the flavours with mild citrus notes to the fore becoming more bitter towards the end of each sip. Hides the alcohol well considering it’s body depth and lack of maltiness within it’s make up. OK more than ’great’ and the only Stones beer I had on the day that didn’t get my taste buds excited.
