3.45/5  rDev -19.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours a nice hazy orange/amber color. Creamy head on top, disappears and leaves some lacing. Nice looking brew.

Smell - I have no idea what I am smelling in here. Some sort of corny/grassy odor laced with a big hop presence. Rather confusing scent, similar to the Arrogant Bastard.

Taste - This may be an acquired taste, so I will keep trying this solely based on the hype. I thought this tasted like wet grass. The hops are in there, but are hidden inside this strage complexity of varying tastes...not all of them good.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and unassuming going down. A mellow feel.

Drinkability - If this is your type of flavor, go for it. It is easy to drink if you can get past the smells and flavors.

Overall - I was a tad let down, but I am sure I'll come around eventually. Maybe Stone should think more about brewing than the literature on their bottles (which is a beer bottle equivalent of War and Peace).
