Served chilled in a snifter. This beer pours a beautiful amber/copper color. It pours very clear with a one finger, creamy and foamy head. The aroma is floral and citrusy, and contains hints of peach, orange, pineapple, onion, and pine. The taste if extremely fresh, and has a nice, hoppy component to it. Again, the grapefruit and pineapple lead the way, though there is some bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body. The aftertaste is sweet and resiny, leaving you wanting more.
Overall the near perfect beer. Stone has been famous for putting out this periodic brew. Recently, they have released batches on 05-16-14, 04-20-14, 02-14-14 and 12-13-13. They are trending for around 10 releases per year, and deliver this fresh beer to all 50 states. The beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized, and that "Enjoy By XX-XX-XX" is actually the projected date of expiration. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a bottle, buy it and drink it right away! The other great thing about this beer is that Stone representatives will come to the stores in which bottles did not sell and buy them back. They are so confident in their product that it will sell, and have made a commitment to producing high quality, fresh beer.
I will buy this every time it comes out. The definition of fresh and delicious.
