This beer will make you rethink your life. I read the back of the bottle while watching television and felt like I was committing some sort of heresy against the Brewing Gods. Those Stone guys are so arrogant that one might feel completely undeserving of even a sip of their beer. Their commitment to making quality beer and letting the customer know about it combined with the sexiest bottle out there makes this a good experience before you even open the bottle. Now, on to the beer. It pours a nice copper color with an off-white head that didn't hang around too long and didn't leave much lacing; coulda been the lighting, but I thought it was a bit hazy also. Smells of alcohol and citrus, kinda sweet in a liquor sort of way. Extremely full mouthfeel, each sip felt like more than it actually was. Taste is of strong alcohol and hop bitterness with a peppery bite at the back of the throat. The malt takes over towards the end. I know this is lacking in description, but its a very delicious beer.
