Very dark, almost brown ale colored, nice fluffy head. Some lacing. A slight malty maybe some citrus aroma with a interesting woody aroma and taste, different! Typically Stone, i feel a little hop aftertaste. Compared too ALL other stones, this is pretty light, maybe a session beer. Alas, not typically available around here, otherwise might consider it for my "light" choice,
Fine Stone offering.

Medium Amber color, malty aroma. Kinda light on the flavor (which is pretty malty), but a cold one is great on a hot day.

Bottle. Citrus hops is my overriding memory of this beer - not ragingly hoppy though. Light and flavourful. Nothing inspiring came to mind while drinking, but it was a good refreshing beer to start the evening with.

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!

Rusty red orange colour with small white head, some lacing. Light body and medium carbonation. Aroma of hops, some malt, trace of citrus. Some caramel in the taste, backed with a lasting bitterness. Very good.

this beer poured a nice deep amber with a small white head. aroma is of hops, mostly grassy and citrusy. for as low alcohol as it is this is a big beer. the flavor is definaly dominated by hops, but not by much. the roasted nutty malt flavor is definatly present. not my favorite stone beer, but a nice change of pace.

Tap. Pours a very clear dark amber, nice thin white head with very good lacing and retention. Very strong hop aroma with a light malt sweetness. Bitterness and aromas transfer to the tongue but stronger than on the nose, still mild but higher sweetness from the malt. Medium carbonation medium-thin body.

A decent stone beer. brown in color, nice and bitter for an amber. Not a spectacular stone product but really good.

Releases a caramel malty sweetness with a touch of piney hops. A nice tan head forms with a creatory head possessing medium sized bubbles. A nice light mahogany colored body. Wow what an amber. A lot of the ambers I’ve had have no balls. This has a stern smokey sweet maltiness with a nice hop backbone. Once again, Stone does not disipoint!

Malty, hoppy aroma. Darker brown color with little tan head. Sweeter taste. Roasty with a very nice hoppy finish. Very hoppy but still not overbearing. I’m a big fan of this beer.
