Stone Double Bastard - Limited Edition

22oz bomber poured into a typical pint glass.

Pours a beautiful dark amber/red color. Less than a finger of head and some nice lacing.

Nose is full of fruit, similar to a Belgian quad.

Taste is fruits and nuts. Definitely hoppy and no malt to cover it up. A hopheads dream. IBU's aren't advertised, but I'd guess they are in the upper 80's. Just the right amount of bitterness for a double ipa, with a nice 11.2 ABV.

Overall one of my favorites.Complex, yet simple. Sweet and bitter, not over malted like many double ipa's. In my opinion Stone should offer this brew year round.
