It’s fresh and sexy and engrossing and smoooooth and delicious and, really, what more can you ask from either a new beer or its brewery?
With this tannic structure, lovely acidity, and forward fruit, this is a genuine stunner.
PROMISE YOU, if you go into Slippery Pig, you WILL taste that ONE (at least, possibly two) ales that will linger in your head for YEARS, the experience as fresh as when you first sipped it.
It comes as NO surprise to me at all that The Ages is among the top two American Gueuze ales that I’ve tasted yet.
Unless everybody at Stone loses their senses, we’ll see this ale again and if you actually do see a bottle of this, buy it and drink it ASAP. It’s going to change the way you think about what the term “India Pale Ale” means.
Richard Sherman blabbed his way out of a job and a city where he was revered and valued. He has no one but himself to blame…Sherman’s mouth wrote a check his ass couldn’t cash…and now he’s a Forty-Niner, just in time for the decline of his physical skills.
I’ve said this a lot and I plan to keep saying it until enough people start to get it: Full Sail is a spectacular brewery.
If you’re a SERIOUS beer fan visiting NorCal, you do NOT just hit Almanac and 21st Amendment and Rare Barrel and Anchor.
