Pours a burgundy(still see through) with a healthy head and okay retention.
The smell unfolds with a ton of hop resins, very dank to say the least. ALso in the mix is a trace of alcohol and lots of malt sweetness and boozey fruits.
The hop resins play against a super-sweet balancing act. This flavor is a beast! the hop presence is very strong, and there is some definate warmth on the alcohol laced follow through.
This brew has a medium full body with ample carbonationn. THe hop oils make the feel a bit slippery.
Goes down nicely despite the high alcohol content. THis one is still very young though, and I imagine it will only improve and mellow with time. I suppose I should lay a few down seeing as though Stone is supposedly changeing the recipe after this year.
