I would say this tasted more like pale ale than an amber ale, loads of hop character with some good malt background

This pours with a TON of foam that sticks around for up to half an hour. Smell is not very prevalent but there is some hints of citrus. The flavor has a very malty backboen in addition to some decent citrus hoppiness. A very pleasant sessionable beer.

Hoppy aromas, citrusy, caramel and malts there too. Medium head, leaves a nice lacing. Taste of hops and malt, palate is fullish. Overall pretty nice, I’d have another :) Prefer this to the stone pale ale.

Aroma: to the point. HOPS! I likened it to a Ruination without the alcohol content, basically a pared-down version of the aforementioned. A great beer for washing down particularly salty, accessible foods, say, gourmet onion rings or nachos.

Pours a fantastic deep amber. Head sticks to the glass, and does not want to let go. Hops are forefront in the aroma. Still well balanced with the malt. Very good beer. Mild beer in alcohol.

Refreshing. Pours dark golden amber with just shy of half an inch of head. For such a light beer the head does stay around nicely. Hops on the nose but not a whole lot else. Laces the glass really well, especially for such a light beer. Leaves the palate in a way that I am not used to when it comes to Stone beer. Nice though for this style of beer, could be a bit more powerful, but what are you gonna do?

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 (sample) Pours a dark copper liquid with huge head which leads to a great lace. Great hoppy aroma. Taste is of caramel malt and floral earthy hops. Oily taste and medium body. Great beer great brewer.
