On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some slight perfume-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a brown sugar flavor as well. There is a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this one a long, long time. Figure I may as well drink it on a hot summer day.

Golden body. Finger of creamy white head.

Nose is a bit stale. Over-sweet malt and hops that once were...

Flavor is still pretty good. Strong but smooth. Marshmallow malt, light citrus, a little spiciness. Interesting blend of flavors.

Mouthfeel is solid, slick, low to moderate carb.

Overall, this is still a solid strong ale. I know that Stone was going for something lighter than their usual anniversary IPA with this one. They succeeded, but I wish I knew what it tasted like when fresh.

Draft to 4oz Taster

WinterStorm 2012

App- A caramel brown with ambers and orange intermixed. A small 1/8" head of small tan head and zero cling.

Smell- Smelled just like a BW. Big malts with a lot of citrus and very smooth aromatics.

Taste- A bit of a good mix. Malty, spicy, and very DIPA like fruits. A bit peppery.

Mouth- A good medium bodty with a medium carbonation level. A good malty and citrus residual flavor.

Drink- I enjoyed this. Strong ales are pretty hard to mess up. This one was just a touch old for me.

Serving type: on-tap
