COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

Amber body with foamy off white head. Malty aroma with nice element of hops. Nice hoppy bitterness to this, though not overly flavourful. Fabulous for an amber ale.

Malty nose overwhelmed by the same strong hops that dominate every Stone release. At this point it's pretty boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured clear medium amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of zesty sweet tropical fruit. Medium body, seems to be from a higher ABV, flavour of bitter sweetness, grapefruit, pine, grass. Bitter sweet end.

Very decent, though not particularly my style. Stone makes some real hop-monsters that are fantastic, so this one is kind of the little brother of the pack. Watch my 6-second review: http://teamchug.com/?p=634

Hoppy for sure. Bitter but a good bitter, one that is enjoyable and keeps your attention while drinking. I would recommend this to some one who wants to start exploring the hopier beers.

A splendid amber ale. The amber color is absolute perfection. There’s a subtle fruitiness with hints of citrus and berry. That tangy/sweet balance is reflected in the hop character. The hops really reveal themselves in the finish. It’s bitter but also a bit herbal. I kept chasing that amazing finish. Sadly, that pursuit always leads to an empty glass in far too little time.

I shouldn’t have been surprised by how good this is, it’s a Stone. A Session IPA before anyone thought to name it that. Bright as a new penny reddish copper color, perfume and citrus nose. The body is light, but still with plenty of clean caramel malt flavor. Strong bitter hops in the finish. It might be floating, but it’s not a lightweight.

Dark, malty flavor. Will tingle your tongue with spices and roasted hops. Pair it with spicy chicken wings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
