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 hazy dark amber. Flavor is nice, citrus hopy bitterness. Kinda reminds me of a less intense IPA. Overall a good brew, exactly what you should expect from a Stone beer.

Sweaty socks, bleu cheese, sour milk, old coffee, and an earthy hop smell strike you in a cacophony of aromas. This pours with a tan-beige head that lightly laces the side of the glass as it slowly sinks into a deep reddish copper pond, clear as bell. A strange yeasty twang is the first thing to your taste buds, followed up by a big in your face symphony of hops, which clings to the roof of your mouth and never leaves. The yeasty thing! The yeasty thing! Itís real isnít it? It turns into quite a biting cheese taste. Although I donít particularly care for the flavor of this, it is definitely quite different than anything else around. It may be light in alcohol, but originality in taste abounds.

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

Not your traditional style amber. I thought I was drinking a weaker Double IPA. I enjoyed it, citrus grapefruit and syrup. Hop forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 fl oz bottle. Poured a rich amber colour with a very small white head that soon disappeared. Malt & citrus on the aroma and taste was quite bitter and hoppy with some malt notes. I found this an easy drinking beer with the bitterness I wanted. On this occasion the fairly low abv just suited my palate & needs.

Poured deep amber haze with nice carbonation, a tight head, and decent lacing. There is a nice blended malt/hop flavor on nose with a hint of nut. Flavors are roasted, dry hop are present on mouth as this Ale presents itself much more on the side through the finish.

The aroma is sweet and light with mild hoppiness. It has a light almond head, calming quickly. The brew is medium brown with enticing floatations. This has a crisp, clean flavor, a bit on the sweet side. Considering the appearance and aroma, I expected much more to the taste, but was dissappointed in its lack of dynamics. On the palate it is as carbonized as soda. The bitterness lingers but does not take away from your enjoyment. I liked this, but wished there was more to it.

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.
