4.2/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy, light brown color with over one finger of persistent parchment-tinted foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Fresh herbaceous hops are a bit piney, while intense fruit reminds mostly of apricot jam, but with a dark streak.

T: Begins sweet, with mint and spice hop aromatics and cakey malt that is suggestive of an oatmeal or other spiced cookie. Some plastic emerges as the beer warms. Acidity is restrained into the middle where hop flavors turn more piney, malt becomes more hearty and roasted, and flavors generally begin to dry out. Fruit from the smell occupies the fringes through out the first two acts, creating a powerful and beguiling sense of depth. The finish is relatively austere, even more piney and mildly bitter.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly sticky on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: Wildly experimental and agressively dry-hopped, this beer simulates well the excitement of hitting a homebrew homerun. It is not flawless, but is made all the more interesting in that its flaws are just that--interesting--if not beautiful to behold. Dry-hopping is remarkably effective here, all the more so because Columbus qualities are made obvious, yet do not ruin everything. While some may be held up higher than others, Stone's collaborations are the most fun of any beer coming out of Escondido--and this is no exception.
