Default Who's had Stone's 13th Anniv.?

This beer is like liquid hops. The website says they "double dry-hop" it. I'm blown away by the hop character of it. I think I crapped chinook and centennial today after a bottle last night.

Can I get an Amen?

I am really looking forward to seeing this one on my frequented shelves!

I feel cheated to see Indiana has it before Idaho

Lucky bugger!

I thought it was more balanced than I had expected. I like it. It is hoppy, but not more so than some beer I've had. I just think the malt balanced it well.

Mitch just said (on TBN) that it is the most hops they've put in any of their beers.

It's currently on tap at Naja's Place here in LA. I tried it a few nights ago at a homebrew club meeting, and I feel it's a bit too hoppy for me. It tasted unbalanced. Although I'll bet in another year it'll be killer.

They've put it out as a beer that is not to be cellared.

I picked up one on Friday and like all the Stone beers I've had, really enjoyed it. I'll go back and pick up some more.

Can't believe I'm saying this....but my larger beer glasses only hold a pint, why didn't they bottle in pint bottles?

Yeah. This will turn into a malt bomb in a year. If you don't like it, don't waste your time.
