Grim Reaper's Eulogy

Hops that go 'pop' in your mouth. At 41 IBU's they are not subtle, but not overpowering. A good dash of roasty malted flavor finishes the balance. This English style pale ale had a head that lasted to the end of the glass and left some remarkable lacy goodness.

What I really enjoyed most is the picture of a gargoyle on the finely painted bottle. It says, "...a fearsome figure carved from stone that has powers to ward off evil spirits." We'll I have never been so insulted...I may go by "The Reaper" but I'm far from evil. And it doesn't scare me one bit. Actually judging from the photo above, I bested that gargoyle. Muhaa-haa! Nice try...

It is the first Stone I've ever had, but listen up...Gargoyles, the Reaper hereby
officially places you on notice. I will be claiming more of these in the future, for sure.
