look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pours a warm chestnut brown with two fingers of dense, frothy beige head.

Smell - Caramel and toffee notes, malts, piney hops, tropical fruit.

Taste - Piney hop bitterness along with caramel and toffee malts, tropical fruit, and a hint of roasted nuttiness. Nice bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - A damn tasty American strong ale by Stone. Glad I found a bottle on my road trip. Excellent flavour palate - a nice surprise from the roasted nut characteristic.

Hard to believe I'm finally trying this beer ... it would seem such a quality product would have come across my radar already.

My only negative comment relates to the high level of hoppiness. I believe this beer would be even better (in my opinion) with the hops toned down a bit. It seems lots of interesting flavors and aromas are being masked.

Color, head, and mouthfeel are top-notch!
