I like the Blindfold.....its not as bold as the Stone SSRA but its an lighter version. It pours a dark opaque with think ecru head that is leaving a nice lacing. The scent carries pine and some citrus like hops. The taste carries IPA flare with coffee/roast/peat base. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall....solid.
