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

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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Pours deep copper/red... minimal head and lacing. Aroma has a nice spicey hop characteristic to go along with the light roasted malt backbone. Flavor starts out all-malt, but has a very nice citrus/spicey hop flavor to balance. At 4.4% abv, this a perfect session beer for people who like more complex flavors. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Nice amber color and a soapy white 1 finger head; a very piney aroma...almost a gin aroma to it and a tiny bit of lemon; taste is much the same up front with a lingering piney aftertaste; nice lively carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. How did they pack this much flavor into such a small ABV? This is a must have session beer.

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
