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.

Pours a dark amber colour with an off white head. Great hoppy, resinous nose. Some tree sap. Good malt backbone with the hoppy notes coming through. Slighty roasty. Good drinkability, a bit thin but still very good.

This may be one of the best "lighter" beers i’ve had. The ability for this to be this good and this drinkable is great. The people at Stone really knocked this out of the park. Sure the IPA and Ruination are tastier and stronger but this could be the best go to beer ever. The drinkability of this is unreal. I cant imagine it being too hot for this beer.

Pours amber brown and smells of toasted wholemeal bread and toasted malt. There is a lot of flavour here, rye and toasted malt balanced with what to me is piney hops, very nice indeed. Only let down is that to me it came across a little thin and watery. Overall definitely a good beer which I would be happy to drink all day long!

Amber beer, reasonable head dispersed fairly fast. Aroma mostly grapefruit with what could have been a touch of melon. Flavour much like aroma with a touch of malty sweetness.

12oz bottle ---> standard pint. Pours a nice deep amber with a frothy head that dissolves quickly. Nice floral aroma with some citrus. Palate is very light with little carbonation (too light for me). The closest thing I can describe the taste to is sweet tea, and I mean that in a good way. This one tastes more like an IPA without the bitterness. Great summertime beer and one you could put away far more than one a sitting. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours a deep amber with a thick lasting head.Aroma is of malts and some citrus.Flavor is a roasty malt and grapefruit overtone.The finish is dry with a little hop bite that grows as you drink.Overall another fine Stone brew.

330ml bottle from Ølhandleriet. Tiny white head. Clear, but slightly cloudy amber body. Aroma of light hops, citrus, yeast and butter. Quite sweet on the tongue, bitter long lasting taste.

Smells like a bit of HOPS! Looks good with very fast rising carbonation, taste is bitter but smooth as well, really like the texture it works with the taste, great beer for the hoppers!

Dark golden brew with a thin antique white head, lots of roasted malt in the bouquet, very hoppy flavor, fairly dry, quickly dissipating malt on the finish
