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.
