I had some of this a while ago and really enjoyed it. I just got ahold of some more and was able to examine it more closely. Beautiful copper orange color with some slight haze. The citrusy floral aroma hit me as I poured and formed a nice creamy head that did dissapate somewhat quickly. Was expecting a serious hop bite but was greeted by a well balanced floral and citrus flavor, definate grapefruit. I might be losing it but was also sensing a hint white raisin, call me crazy. This beer was no slouch in the hoppy bitterness department, but was not over the top. All in all, a great beer, I really liked it, get some if you still can. I'm sad that this will be Stone's last year for their anniversary beers.
