look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours dark, clear copper with a thick, light tan colored head. There appear to be a moderate amount of tiny bubbles rising within the beer. The head retreats slowly. I pick up aromas of caramel malt and brown bread with citrus type hop aromas. It smells sweet and and a little piney. More of those resinous hop notes come through in the flavor than they did in the nose. The flavor is juicy and malty sweet up front. The piney hop flavors really hammer in the back end and linger in the mouth, giving some nice back end bitterness. I get those caramel notes with that brown bread. Stone tends to do these hoppy beers rather well and like the other Bastards, this beer does not disappoint. The beer is full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. The beer finishes somewhat dry. This is an excellent beer.
