Pours a medium brown with medium sticky head,aroma is somewhat hoppy and maybe a little orange-like.Taste is pretty hoppy and zesty to begin with,with some nutty tones as well as caramel tones on the palate.Wow this is a complex brew,have heard alot of stuff about this one,now I know why.

12oz bottle poured into a 20oz Firestone glass.What can you say just another solid beer from stone.Great beer that is easy to find here in California.7.2 ABV will get the job done nicely.If you have not tried this give it a try.I think you will like it.

Poured a nice brown color with a quarter inch creamy head. Malty flavor with a good hop hit, but not overly bitter. Very balanced and easy drinking. Flavors really show through as the beer warms slightly. Aroma is roasty and mildly hoppy. This is a beer that sets the standard for quality and drinkability.

Tasted really good, no harsh aftertaste, poured nice with a finger and half head, nice aroma. Had one bottle and wish i had a couple more....highly recommend this California beer and will be enjoying another very soon. Very filling beer as well and i think it would go great with a backyard bbq

4.25/5  rDev +1.9%

Poured from a growler into a pint glass.

Appearance: Creamy head that stuck around and rode the glass to the bottom. Dark copper color, very clear and inviting.

Nose: Malty, hop forward, caramel, slightly fruity.

Taste: Sweet up front, powerful hop pineyness, nice malt backbone, no warming alcohol despite being 7.2%. Hops lead to a dry finish.

I don't know how many times I've had this beer. It is always a great staple at my local pub and I'm glad I can get growler fills of it down the street. Stone is doing some amazing things with beer styles and capitalizing on the hop-frenzy of the West Coast.
