An amazing amount of flavor for such a low alcohol content beer! Wonderful hoppy aroma. A multitude of flavors roll across your tongue, ending in what I would characterize as a smoky raisin. Wonderful!

Pine and citrus hop aroma. Some grapefruit notes. Great color. Hop flavor is very pronounced but the lower alcohol level finishes remarkably smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Amber-molasses pour with a medium off white head. Taste is hops up front, then fruit and honey. Smooth palate. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 A really enjoyable ale. I would have enjoyed it more had I not discovered that other Stone products are superior.

poures out dark oarnge with a dark maroon body and a finger thick white head. there is some lacing but its not sticking and the head is staying steady. the smell is soft but has a nice hop aroma that is breaking through. nice maltiness with a hoppy bitter semi sweet aftertaste that is mellow and doesnt linger on. very drinkable and an every day drinker type of beer.

Pours amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is very hoppy with hints of pine and citrus. Taste is hoppy but not too bitter. Not really picking up the caramel maltiness as others have. More of a Pale Ale in my opinion.

Out of the bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a solid tan head. Smell is malty. Taste is a little spicy and slightly bitter to finish. Very solid beer.

Hoppy aroma and a deep red-brown appearance. Hoppy taste and a slow bitter finish. Wonderful beer.

THis is a very tasty beer, one of my favorite Stone ales. I only wish the alcohol content was a bit higher. Great citrusy flavor, full of hops...

Served from tap into a tumbler. Pours a brownish red-orange with a one finger off-white head. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt and a massive hop note. The flavor was of malt, citrus, and a very subtle hop. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a very nice brew. The aroma was very nice for hop-heads, and the flavor was very nice for all other beer drinkers out there. It went down really smoothly. Kudos to Stone for this one...
