Acquired this bottle directly from Stone Brewing Co. in Escondido.
There was a free tour and a tasting of four of their year round beers. Awesome!!!
The head was very disappointing. The beer looks filtered like most of Stone's beers. It is a dark amber color. It doesn't have a very distinct or strong smell, except for maybe caramel and oak. The taste is sweet (almost soda like). The malt tastes caramel-y, which suites its style. The hop character is almost undetectable (unusual for Stone). Although it is almost 9% ABV, the Highway 78 is very drinkable.
Overall, a drinkable but not particularly impressive beer. Mitch should stick to brewing alone.
