This beer showcases the ultra bitter approach to hops that was popular in the late nineties. This is the kind of beer that caused me to switch to wine and other beverages. The new school of hoppy beers showcase flavor and aroma elements to balance the bitterness. In the bastard, bitterness is forefront and dominant. A very unpleasant beer to drink.

Great hop forward ale. Refreshing and excellently balanced.

I think its a solid Ale, at 7.2% it gives you a nice buzz once the bottle is empty. Still not impressed by Stone at this point
