Poured from 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - The body is s striking brown-red hue with a thick ivory head on top. Ample lacing graces the side of the glass as the drink is consumed.

S - An onslaught of pine and grapefruit rind. Some caramel maltiness slips in underneath, but are quickly squashed again by the citrus and sap aromas.

T - Aggressive woody pine and resin are the first flavors to hit the palate. Then comes the grapefruit in all its mouth puckering glory. The malt body has pleasant toffee and bread tastes, with a some hints of vanilla, pecans, and earth. The finish is unabashedly bitter and astringent.

M - A damn sappy mouthfeel with a relatively low carbonation. Divine.

O - A hell of a beer. It strikes a perfect balance between the beers blended to make it while still maintaining the over-the-top character of Stone's flagship.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Deep ruby thin tan head sticky lacing.

Aroma: Caramel, oak and citrus peel hops. Not particularly intense.

Flavor: Pine and citrus peel hops, very astringently bitter as per all of the Bastards. Toasty, oaky. Not quite as boozy as Double bastard, but still too boozy for 8.5% ABV in my opinion.

Mouthfeel: Super sticky, with a boozy tingle.
