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

Pours a deep apricot colored wonder into a snifter! 2 inch foamy head dissipates after a while into an inch lacing that lingers till the glass is empty!
Citrusy, piney bouquet, with a fruit sweetness that just screams " DRINK ME"! But not yet..Grapefruit / passion fruit comes through, the magic of hops at work!
A deep punch in the palate, HOPS! HOPS! HOPS! The malts come through also, balancing it all out! Don't get me wrong, this is one damn hoppy beer, but it does not overwhelm! It mellows out, but in a good way! And a warming alcohol embrace to smooth things out!
I could go on and on but, honestly, no words can describe this beer. You HAVE to taste it. It's just amazing!
Cannot recommend this one enough, specially if you are a Hop Head!
Cheers and LONG LIVE STONE BREWING!!
