Got this in bottle from Trader Joes.

I'm sorry, but A- rating for this? I know I'm a lightweight but this drink was f-ing HORRID. I almost gagged at the disgusting aftertaste of this beer. The appearance was fine, nothing to complain about...but everything else was simply 'awful'. I realize that BAers love the outrageous, extreme, in-your-face beers, but this is just nasty. Please stay away if you have any real taste.

Drainpour for me, and my lowest rating yet. This is the type of beer that put me off drinking for so long.

P.S. Whoever the reviewer is that said "this is a great session beer" needs their head checked.

I think STONE is one of the finest breweries to come out of America PERIOD; all their Ipa servings are the beers to be judged against and their belgium/ipa is the tops. They have two beers that I can't figure out if people are on something when they drink them because they are just,,,argghh (cough, gag, cough, disgust) SICKENING and I think they must be a joke from the brewmaster. This is a wast of money and DISGUSTING. Horrid, I would drink a Bud light any day over this.
