Well, Raul did it. After having about 100 or so of these bad boys over the years, he has finally felt inclined to put Cariter pen to paper and review Stone IPA.

Out of a bottle and into an american shaker at Fernwood Bar, Big Sur, CA.

All of the necessary components are there; appearance is uplifting like Kate Upton in a corset; smell is delicate, yet nice like picking flowers with Natalie Portman in Florence while she is wearing her summer best; and taste is on par like Eva Mendes swinging a 5 iron.

Now, don't get Raul wrong; it's solid down the line, but not amazing like having Nina Agdal over at 2 AM "amazing." The main drawback is what Raul would call a "strict" taste/bite in the end. Kind of the the headmistress giving you a spanking for being late to class; Raul will accept it because all of her other attributes, but it doesn't exactly feel good.
