Another Stone masterpiece. Clear, medium amber with short, silky head. Pure malt in the nose, nut hops come on full bore in the taste. Lingering bitter finish. Wonderful!

Amber color with off-white head. Smells mostly like some herbal hops with a slight malty undertone. Taste starts with some caramel and continues with the same herbal hops note from the aroma. Quite bitter up-front and gets intensely bitter to the finish and follows in the aftertaste. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Overall this is a really aggressive amber ale with a lot of bitterness.
