Low abv, though it doesnít taste like it; still a little hoppy for my taste, but a solid brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle at Buz and Nedís The amber ale poured a hazy amber color, with big creamy head and lacing. The head slowly dissapated. The hop aroma was of malt and hop resins. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. The ale had average carbonation. The finish had a rich taste that lingered at the end. This was a fun experience.

I thought this was one of my favorite stone beers. Nice and roasty with a citrus hop finish.

Draft. Brown brew with small head. Aroma of citrus and earth. Taste is moderately hoppy with little malt to balance. Citrus, earth and spice. A littly nutty taste. Thin palate.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stoneís signature hop character lead this beer to be quite similar to their IPA and Arrogant Bastard, but with a very nice toasty malt finish that lingers. If you love strong San Diego hopping but want something sessionable, this is the one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber-garnet pour with a thick, buoyant cream-colored head that settles slowly and laces intricately. Nice hoppy nose with plenty of pine resin and spice along with some candied citrus and caramel malt notes. A fair sweetness with a more substantial bitterness: a really big flavor. Light to medium bodied, somewhat grainy, with a full and borderline explosive bitterness. A really bold, flavorful session ale that I could definitely see having a few of without compromising on aroma or taste. Delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, served in a pint glass. Ruby amber color with a small tan head. Nose is bread, caramel, hops; taste follows with some grass. Drinkable but not hoppy and bitter like so many Stone offerings.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent brew but not my style as taste is too bitter and mouthfeel is too thin.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Citrus aroma, citrus taste. I would have avoided this a few years ago but I very much enjoyed this brew. Poured from bottle into english pint, thin but lasting head with a nice deep amber color, almost red. Canít wait for warmer days this will be great in the summer.

Solid Ale. As good, if not maybe a hair better, than Stone IPA. It has a very complex flavor for an ale.

Very good brew from Stone, rich and roasty, straight from the tap in San Diego!
