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.

Bottle. Nice, hoppy grapefruit tast, much like an ipa. Kind of thin without much malt flavor. Typical Stone bitterness in the aftertaste.

One of best ambers out there...heard they were dumping this too. Amber and light malts in aroma, some red wine grapes and biscuit malts. Finishes pretty clean with the residual sweetness from the amber malts.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Light brown to umber in color. Small, but stable canvas colored head. Mild herbal hops atop a floe of caramel. Fairly light and airy in feel. Lightly sweet and slightly toasty. Just a bit of herbal and citric hops balance. Big return of caramel in the finish and linger. Nice flavorful session brew. 2/10

Like most Stone brews that I’ve tried this has a strong, overpowering bitterness. It is barely discernible as an amber and has none of the the well rounded or creamy notes I expect from a good amber. It has a touch of citrus but mostly bitter. Not good at all.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle: Mild gush. Toasted amber & chestnut color with a lazy beige & grey tinted foam on top. Aroma of burnt tree bark, dank pines, caramel malt sweetness, citrus peel, & herbal ash. Flavor is pretty herbaceous, too, along with notes of caramel, toasted biscuits & bread, pine needles, grapefruit rind, mild toffee, & moderate hemp oil. Semi-dank in the finish with some residual malt stickiness. Decent.

12 oz bottle. Saying goodbye to an old friend now that Stone will be discontinuing this. What a bummer. Anyway, pours a lovely rich amber with a nice big white head that leaves a ton of sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine, biscuits, wheat. Taste is equal parts malty and hoppy. Caramel, citrus and pine up front with the wheat and biscuit coming in behind it. Long, slightly dry finish. Medium bodied, sticky and smooth texture, average to lightly high carbonation. Very crisp, refreshing, and easy to drink. One of the best amber ales out there and a hell of a great session beer!

This was actually the first Stone beer I ever tried about 7 years ago, but it’s been a long time and I decided to revisit it. Reminds me of a session IPA, solid hop characters (especially pine) and a solid enough malt backbone. Nothing amazing, but still good.
