What more needs to be said, 2675+ reviews and holding steady at A-. This is a big bold beer, the name and story on the bottle should be enough. If you can't handle it don't drink it and don't review it. If you're a Pilsner drinker this beer is not going to impress. If you're a big beer drinker who enjoys lingering hops and all the flavors that big beers should have then step right up. This beer is Stone's stellar offering and one that I will also choose unless I need to drive somewhere!

Dark caramel colored brew. Mountainous tan head that does not give up and completely coats the glass in creamy lacing.

Spicy aroma of pine-like hops. Rich toffee and almonds. Citrus fruit aroma. Incredibly complex.

Flavor is unparalleled. Starts with a bold, hearty, rye bread malt character. Assertive hop comes to life in the perfect balance with a spicy herbal, citrusy, pine flavor. Definitely has some Cascade hops. Sweet caramel, toffee, toasted almonds come in later adding depth and mellowing out the experience. Finishes semi-dry with tons of lingering flavors.

Medium to full bodied yet not syrupy. Good level of carbonation. Love the dry finish from the hops.

Wow. This beer is amazing! The flavor is so complex yet blends so well. I even like the message on the back of the bomber. A world-class brew.
