Stone Tangerine Express IPA
Bottle. Clear deep gold with a white head. Lots of citrus - mandarin, grapefruit, maybe some Seville orange - light bread. Blind, you would strongly suspect actual mandarin. But the fruit plays more of a supporting role with firm bready malt that's not too sweet and punchy citrus that's not at all. Finish is dryish and quite bitter with orange peel, some pepper. Good.

[An aside: Stone appears to have figured out local dating conventions (dd/mm/yyyy). After years of wittering away about how awful so-called grey market beer was because it didn't meet their freshness standards, the shelf life on this "official" import is 14 months.]

Stone 20th Anniversary Encore Series: 6th Anniversary Porter
Pite u Marcina D w HQ
Smaczne, czekoladowo - deserowe. Kawa gdzieś w tle. Alkohol ukryty. Smak głęboki i dojmujący. Goryczka bardzo wysoka, zalegająca, niestety. Całość potwornie wytrawna. Chyba najbardziej wytrawny z porterów jaki piłem do tej pory. Goryczka niestety w połowie butelki zaczyna przeszkadzać i męczyć. Piwo solidne tylko mogłoby być sprzedawane w butelkach 0,33

Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA
11/19/2017 (12 fl oz can): Stone Vengeful Spirit IPA... Fresh, hoppy aroma with some juicy mandarin and pineapple; cloudy golden orange color with a frothy light beige head; sweet toffee malt at first, then fruity citrus, and pineapple along with some pine, grass, and a touch of mango, moderate bitterness, bittersweet overall, alcohol well-hidden; medium body, slightly soapy mouthfeel; pretty good overall, but not amazing.

Cloudy orange to copper pour with a one finger, creamy to fluffy white head. Aroma is full of tropical fruit and yuzu heavy citrus, a little bready malt and doughy yeast. Flavor is pale malt, cereal, tropical fruit, tons of citrus juiciness and some sweet melon. Medium body, pretty syrupy, slightly oily feel, light to medium, sharp carbonation. Good stuff.

Draft at The Bishops Arms Savoy, Malmö, Sweden. Enjoyed on Nov 8 2017.
I believe the one I had was the Berlin version. Cloudy red amber color with a small head. Dry, bitter and harsh. Not really a good example of an American Pale Ale. Not my kind of APA for sure.

Stone Hop Revolver IPA #2: Mosaic
12oz bottle from Brook Falls Discount in the Falls. Standard IPA pour. Aroma of pine, oranges and pineapple Taste is of sweet and tangy fruits, citrus, some resin, on a solid malty toffee base. Medium bodied or less, with a solid blend and little alcohol presence. Finishes well balanced between bitter and sweet. Wow! Surprised, as I knew this would be old, but it was on the singles rack and figured would give it a shot. Mosaic is such a great hop! 13.7

Stone Hop Revolver IPA #5:Simcoe
The initial pour is cleared golden and a little pale, with a medium off-white head that lingers. The aroma is citrus, hops and a slight bit of sweetness. The taste is grapefruit, slightly sweet, beautifully bitter with a balance sweetness that makes it a very very nice IPA. Overall this is a go to IPA that is hopped fully but is not overpoweringly bitter.

Stone Imperial Russian Stout
Lagrad flaska från SB. Bäst före dec 2016. Svart kulör med liten skumkrona. Doft av mörk choklad, kaffe och rostad malt. Smak av detsamma. Söt och lite syrlig munkänsla.

Stone Stochasticity Project Quadrotriticale
bottle, rating from 2016 - Deep amber pour. It smells of malt, Belgian yeast, and dark fruit. The flavor is sweet though not as sweet as many quads. There's caramel, dark fruit, and spice. It's full bodied yet easy to drink, an enjoyable beer though not great for Stone.

Bottle. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of tropical fruits, hops and some pine. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tropical fruits, hops, pine, alcohol with medium carbonation and a nice sweet aftertaste. Good stuff.

Definitely a real fruit flavored IPA. More than a citrus hops and less than a sweet fruit beer. Bomber was right size, and went well with Butterkäse cheese.

Stone 21st Anniversary Hail to the Hop Thief Double IPA
Rated on 11-16-2017. Draft. The appearance of this beer when served is a small head that is fully lasting, slightly hazy golden body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, some pine hops, tropical fruit, slightly earthy, and malt. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, tropical fruit, some booze, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter lingering finish. It is quite tasty, worth trying and a beer that I would drink again.
