This is a good one for hops lovers. Super hoppy, but flavorful. The smell got me excited to take my first sip. Not perfect overall, but damn close for what you pay.

Similar taste to most Stone brews. It was very heavy and full filling

A longer bitterness in the aftertaste than my favorite Stone strong ales, but a great malt/rye balance nonetheless. Hops off the chart.
