Pure pure black with a nice off white foamy head. This is what a dark beer should look like.

The smell is citrus hops,very fresh lemon and grapefruit.

The taste like the smell has the citrus hop flavours with a slighty malty finish. Extremely well balanced.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied,slight syrupy with low carbonation.

This really an excellent beer, the hops taste so fresh and so well balanced.

Opened the bottle expecting good things, and it didn't disappoint.
Forget bouquet and think bucket. Black India Pale Ale and the 'pail' is the measure per bottle for the hops. Pine, passion fruit, cocoa, bergamot orange, lychee, fruit cocktail, peach, grape, muscovado, demerara, blackstrap molasses.
In short,
Need I say more?

Poured from a 12oz bottle

A- pours pitch black, nearly no light through it... big khaki colored head... stays around for most of the time ... very sticky lacing

S- piney sap.. roasted barely, sweet caramel malt

T- sweetness up front... bitter sappy middle... to a faint roastyness... lingering bitterness

M- medium to thinner body, almost watery in some aspects... lower carbonation ... lingering dryness

O- stone is never a disappointment... this is a great beer... possibly a good session beer... even though you might make it to 6 on these hahaha

Poured on-tap at Stone Brewing in Escondido, Calif. Reviewed from notes.

A- Thick two-finger head. Off-white color. Long retention. Dark brown color.

S- Caramel malts, darker spicy hops and roast barley.

T- Very strong flavor. Aggressive hops and roast malts. Bold taste. Bitter and beastly.

M- Chewy and well carbonated. Quite the feel.

O- This is a tough guy to drink quickly. Plan appropriately.
