Now this is more like it. I was sorely disappointed in the bottle of Stone Levitation Ale I had a few weeks back. It flat out sucked, and Stone usually does wonderful things with beer. The Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale restores my faith in Stone, the universe, and everything. This poured a deep mahogany brown, almost black, with a minimal tan head. It had a very nice pine and grapefruit hop flavor, backed up by some toasted malt with a dark chocolate aftertaste. Clocks in at 8.7% ABV, but you do not notice the alcohol at all. I don’t know whether to call this a dark IPA or a hoppy porter, but I am calling it a 7/10.
