12 oz. bottle. Very mild hoppy flavor compared to the rest of the Stone line. Easy to drink a few.

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.

A good ale by stone but not my favorite style. Complex for sure and very tasty.

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.

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.

Appearance is clear deep amber with creamy off white foam cap. Aroma is hop forward, more pine and herbal. Taste is roasted, toasty malt and gives way to a clean hop bite. The malt character is especially light, lacking the deeper body and viscosity more common with the style. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is a well balance bitterness that leaves a dry feeling on the tongue. An easy drinking, sessionable amber with great aroma, but seems to be lacking richness in malt character

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

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
