Bitter, dry, non-descript. Disappointing given Stone's reputation.

On tap at Stone World Bistro in Escondido, CA. Served in a stemmed glass 12/14/14.

A- Clear, although perhaps slightly hazy, amber-red body with a one finger white head. Nice retention. Drops into a medium collar. Nice rings of lacing.

S- Bread, citrus, pine. Very pine-forward more so than citrus although citrus pops out first. The breadiness is moderate-mild in terms of sweetness. Reminds me a bit of Arrogant Bastard.

F- Pine pops out in the beginning and the end, it has a fairly bitter finish as well but of course not unbearably bitter like Arrogant Bastard. Nice malt breadiness rounds things out along with a bit of citrus and grapefruit. Nice complexity for what it delivers.

M- Medium bodied, on the thinner side but tons of flavour, nice carbonation. Piney bitterness rounds it out. Very drinkable for 4.4% ABV and especially for the flavour it provides. Really nicely done.

O- Very nice session ale, especially for the flavour it gives. It's like a Session Bastard.

Final score: 3.98
