Had this one a few months ago, drank the case so quickly that I forgot to review one. Then i was told that it was a mistake that it came to the East and that i won't be able to get it again. Well I saw a case of it again last week and grabbed it. So here goes the review before it's all gone.
Dark copper color with a nice sized head. This beer has the look of quality that you expect from Stone. Smell is fruity with some citrus zest. Also a strong backbone of caramel and biscuit malt comes through. The taste is perfectly balanced. I love Stone's hop bombs but this is just a solid balanced beer that deserves some props. Finishes with a little bit of a bitter bite, just to let you know it's a stone, and a little dry. If you look at drinkability as being able to down a bunch in a night than this is the most drinkable stone i've had. If you look at drinkablity as being "boy i could drink this beer for the rest of my life and be happy" then it's a winner also. The quality I've come to know and expect from stone. Hope this one continues to be available in PA.
