Poured into a perfect pint. Enjoy by Jan 31, 2013, so I just barely made it.

3.5 A: Clear copper amber color. Two and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is decent and a diffuse lattice of foamy lacing is left.

3.5 S: Surprisingly hoppy, this takes on a lot of the double bastard. Hop aroma is a mix of floral foremost with pine, herbal and earthy following behind. Caramel and toasty maltiness with notes of toffee and dark fruits - raisin and dates.

3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Piney and floral hop flavor. Caramel, toffee, toastiness, and neutral malt maltiness. Dark fruits.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and quite smooth.

3.5 D: This is good, but nearly every thing Stone offers has been eclipsed hundreds of times since craft beer started going more mainstream and showing up everywhere.

A- Dark amber brown with little visibility though it. A little less than an inch of tan bubbly head as the foam can be seen sticking to the sides of the glass almost immediately.

S- Tons of hops in this one that cover up nearly everything else. Piney resiny hop smell quite distinct from the beginning to the end of the beer as caramel notes can be picked out behind it with some oak and vanilla smells as well. The end of the beer brings a noticeable alcohol smell, but the hops still reign supreme.

T- Once again the pine and resin from the hops come forward quite strong, maybe even more overwhelming than the smell. Tiny amounts of caramel come through with more distinct wood flavors but almost completely lost in the hops sensation. Around the middle of the beer the alcohol picks up and makes its presence known, almost challenging the hops. Alcohol and bitterness flow into the aftertaste. I think this is a little bit of an overdose here.

M- Prickly carbonation as you can almost feel the hops tearing away at your mouth. Medium to thick body as well.

D- Eh, seems to me this is little more to this beer than hops and alcohol. Where is the depth? Almost tired of seeing how much hops Stone can throw into a beer.
