A level of bitterness to satisfy just about any hophead. I'll take this one whenever I can get it. I've found its best in a bomber. For some reason, in a 12oz, it doesn't have quite the effect or consistancy from my experience, but I suppose it could have been sitting on the shelf longer. The look is almost terrifying as the taste. The descriptions on the back of all Stone bottles is half worth the cost...I'm starting to wonder if they really are written by demons...

It's a fine brew, maybe I'm just burned out on the never ending list of IPA's. Plenty hoppy.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- An over the top hops and citrus aroma.
Appearance- The beer is a murky golden yellow with a small white head. Looks good.
Taste- Very hoppy, I noticed the high scores and I guess I am not a follower. The flavor was OK
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The hops made this a very dry beer.
Overall- I thought this was OK, not great or even real good. I much prefer Arrogant Bastard over this.
