Poured from a bottle with an "enjoy by" date of 1/5/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - a fine looking red ale with bubbly carbonation that builds a towering, beige head! Lacing is superb!
Smell - a surprisingly hop forward citrus nose! I am really pleased with this!
Taste - another aggressively hopped beer from Stone that finds a way to work with the style!
Feel - light body, bitter hops, and very easy to drink, as you can imagine at 4.4%.
Overall - an amber ale for the hop head! Stone hits a home run with this one in my opinion!

A:
Pours a clear amber-red with two inches of airy tan head. Very good retention; good lacing.

S:
Grassy hops, biscuity and caramel malt aromas, and a touch of brown sugar.

T:
Dusty hops that verge on medicinal towards the end.

M:
Flat, quick and dry. Medium body with a lingering medicinal finish.

O:
Good beer on the whole.
Nothing inherently "bad" about it, but it is slightly "meh." The flavors featured are undeniably good, but are overshadowed by what it doesn't have.
Regardless, I would have it again; worth trying if you can get it where you are.
