Served in a bottle at Idle Hands in New York, NY
A: Pours a crystal clear amber in color with a very thin light beige head. The head reduces to a thin ring of bubbles at the edge of the glass. Light lacing is observed.
S: Still get the signature hop profile I associate with Stone but added to that I get lots of hints of oak and vanilla. A really inviting aroma for a beer.
T: Pine hops with a slight hint of citrus hops upfront, followed by some caramel malt sweetness, then some oak and vanilla giving the beer an almost bourbon like sweetness. Nice bitterness in the finish.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky with a dry finish.
O: Wonderful sipping beer, great bold flavor and smell. Definitely an improvement on Arrogant Bastard. I like this one a lot and really enjoyed it.
