Stone/Port/Green Flash Highway 78

type: Scotch ale
origin: San Diego, Ca
price: 3/12-oz
abv: 8.8%

Another collaboration beer, and another win. This is just superb. There's a really great interaction between the malts and alcohol I think only a Scotch ale can espouse. Modest sweetness balanced with bitterness. I like it because after every drink the flavors linger for a while, gently reminding you to take another sip. This was probably the quickest I've ever drank a review beer.

I'm impressed so far with the Stone collaborations, and this certainly doesn't disappoint. If only they could make the real highway 78 so wonderful; as it stands, I'll take a great ale over a shitty north county highway any day.
