look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear medium to dark amber in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation at the surface of the beer and some copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense creamy and foamy dark beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pine/resin and citrus/grapefruit rind hops over the top of moderate aromas of caramel malt sweetness. There is a lighter aroma of oak as well.

T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of caramel malts with a very light amount of sweetness which is quickly overtaken by the strong hops flavors - pine/resin dominates with some more moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit rind. Light to moderate notes of oak with just a hint of vanilla as the beer warms. Strong amounts of lingering bitterness and light amounts of alcohol are in the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with moderate to heavy amounts of dryness in the finish. Light amounts of alcohol warming are also present in the finish.

O: The idea of blending all of the different "bastard" ales from Stone is an interesting one and the resulting beer is certainly tough to classify as it is somewhere between an IPA/DIPA and Strong Ale/Old Ale. There is a fair amount of complexity to the flavors which when combined with the alcohol presence, makes this a beer that needs to be sipped slowly. This beer is quite bitter.
