12 oz bottle, brought back from the States.
Pours dark and rich looking mahogany, thin head but good retention.
Smell and taste both have lots of hops - pine and citrus, but balanced with caramel malty sweetness. Oak chips add alot of flavor and another layer of intensity.
Bitter, but in a good way, finish and aftertaste. Medium, pushing full body and mouthfeel.
I enjoy almost all of Stone's beers, and this is right at the top.
