Aromas and flavors of citrus, pine and orange. Bats had nothing to do with the flavor. Medium to light weight. Crisp and mildly sweet. Just another in the line of IPA’s from Stone with a gimmick thrown in for good measure.

On tap @ Stone. Another Lousville Slugger tick. Woohoo. Orange in color with white foam. Sweet citrus and peaches to this one. Slight vanilla and wood. Mild floral notes and some sweet brown sugar. Maybe a very mild spicy quality to it as well. Overall, just not a big fan.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Juicy citrus, some malty sweetness, moderate bitterness, and a dull hoppy finish. A bit muddled, but not bad.

Can, also a few months old as the previous rater noted. Not bad, dark golden-ish pour. Has a little bit of citrus but you can tell it’s faded a bit. A little bit of wooden flavor. I’m certain it’s much better fresh but I don’t want to knock it for being old.

Can. A couple months old. Pours orange gold with a big clingy off white head. Aroma is clementine, caramel, grapefruit, bread. Taste is caramel, slightly soured clementine, earthy wood finish.

Can at Ryan’s. Pours a golden body with white lacing. Notes are woody, spicy and malty. Not too great.

I Think this is the sly fox version. Great woodsy and citrusy aroma. Taste is mainly ipa with some wood buried back in there. Mouthfeel is light to moderate. Pretty tasty. Reminds me of cedar aged jai lai.

Can...pours copper clear with lots of head and carbonation. Aromas and flavor are bubblegum, yeast, orange, light wood if any. Get a lot of cascade hops, rye bread and toast malt in this one. Light to medium body. Ehh it’s alright, at least it was pretty fresh.

Growler fill from Oceanside location. Pours a clear golden orange color, with a white head. Soft citrus, orange, cereal malt, faint oak, light bitterness, and some caramel. Pretty "softened" out for an IPA, not very aggressive, but easy drinking and fairly tasty. Ok.

Tap at Stone O’Side. Slightly murky golden orange pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is dry hop bitterness with citrus, orange, pine, and soft wood in the background. Taste is dominated by dry, bitter hops with complimentary orange and pine over a clean, biscuit malt profile. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Characteristic Stone bitterness but there’s quite a bit of balance here and the wood, while quite subtle, does add a nice softening aspect to the aggressive hops in both the aroma and flavor. Excellent
