This is a well balanced beer with a very high hops content, a full bodied flavor, and a faint and not unpleasant after taste. If you like hops and don't care or enjoy a little bit of bitter then this is an absolute must try.

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.
