Pours a clear, red-tinged copper with impressive white head and lacing. Looks beautiful in a pint glass. Mouthfeel is enjoyable, smooth without being oily or too viscous.

Subtle aroma of caramelized malts under a delightfully hoppy forefront. The taste is exceptional, and exceeds the aroma complexity. A well balanced blend of sweet malts transitions nicely into the tropical fruit hop tones, and ends with a stunningly lingering but pleasantly bitter finish. That keeps going and going... Alcohol is dangerously well hidden, with only sign of 7.7% ABV a subtle the warmth in the finish.

All in all, an excellent treat. Would highly recommend.

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!!
