I don't even know where to begin, but WOW.
This beer is as good as their Arrogant Bastard Ale.

The appearance was a nice cloudy lighter copper color with a moderate head.

The smell was definatley Pine, A little smokiness, and definatley floural.

The taste is exceptional. Very hoppy, but not bitter, nice hop aftertaste but a very clean hop aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is nice. The right amount of carbonation.

Drinkability. This is a very smooth beer, drinks really easily. It didn't have a strong alcohol presence but the 7.7% really does sneak up on you!

An excellent bear by Stone, up to par with their Arrogant Bastard ale, which is by far the best beer known to man.
