4.51/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: A glorious near-ruby red ale with brilliant clarity and a creamy white head that leaves plenty of lacing.

Smell: Grassy hops are tempered by notes of caramelized peaches and newly baked bread. Meanwhile, hot buttered rum mixes with grapefruit and apricot. This bouquet is a merry dance, with ever-changing soloists moving to the same even beat.

Taste: Warm, buttery caramel adds just enough sweetness to toasty malt and resinous hops to bring this out from IPA territory. The medium bitternrss lasts through the finish, but not without a fresh breath of spearmint mixed with citrus. Complex YUM.

Mouthfeel: Creamy texture meets just enough fizz to keep this drink merry and bright. A slightly watery feel detracts somewhat--a bit more body would do the taste buds good.

Overall: A bit more viscosity, and you have yourself a masterpiece. Speaking subjectively, this beer more than encompasses and harmonizes my favorite elements of the moment: Bright hops and sweet/hearty melanoidins. I will be seeking out this beer like a fox.

L-Burgundy/brown colored...nice frothy tan head
S-Very fresh floral and piney hop aroma....
T-Big pine flavor.....malt is secondary but has some toffeeish characteristics...some hints of dark fruits as well.
F-Medium to full bodied....strong bitterness on the finish...
0-Not as complex as I had hoped but nothing wrong with this piney strong ale offering from Stone.

Poured from a bomber into a glass

L: Pours a pretty garnet color with a quickly-disappearing light tan head. Clear. No lacing.

S: Mild and malty. I get a little citrusy hops, but there's not much in the nose for me. But, to be fair, I really should be drinking this is a sniftner.

T: Bitter, piney hops right up front. Bit of vanilla. But hops are the players here.

F: Not too carbonated. Smooth and light on the tongue.

O: Some of the lovely things about the the individual brews get lost when mixed together. But, overall, a nice blend and a pleasant beer.

On tap at Yardhouse.
Dark red-brown with a durable head that left nice patterns of lacing on the glass.
Both the aroma and the flavor have depth and the flavor has admirable complexity. The aroma has pronounced caramel and vanilla notes and seems to hint that the flavor might disappoint but it does not. There are suggestions of oak, toffee, vanilla and dark fruits, but nothing to mask the solid malt base.
