A-Pours a clear and dark amber with substantial off white head that has good retention and leaves quite a bit of sticky lace.

S-Loads of piney and citrus hops with a slightly sweet malt backbone. Smells like its Bastard brothers had a party together.

T-Big blasts of pine, citrus hops. Nice bitter bite. Slightly sweet caramel malt in the middle and back. Not picking up any oakiness, but thats ok, this is good stuff.

M-Medium body. Slightly prickly carb bite with a bitter back end bite.

D-As with all the Bastards, I take it slow. But each sip is a palate pleaser which makes this very drinkable.

Another hit from Stone. I love the Bastard line and this one does not disappoint.

A - Pours a deep amber, almost brown with ruby highlights into my tulip glass with just about two fingers of head. Excellent retention and lacing.

S - Beautiful blend of caramel malts, bright citrus hops and earthy oak. Although there is a citrus zest to it, it comes off more as pear or pineapple than the common grapefruit.

T - Bitter hop bite that lasts throughout the whole experience. Bight citrus zest, grapefruit and even some pineapple notes. Caramel malts are there but don't stand out as much us usual next to the aggressive hops. Notes of Oak are also present and quite nice. On the back end the bitterness continues to stay with you right on to the next sip.

M - Medium to full in body, well balanced, very nice.

D - This beer is awesome, but very aggressive on the taste buds and can't imagine doing more than one bomber in an evening.
