COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 "Smaller" than Stone’s other beers, but full of flavor. Cocoa and malt with a nicely balanced hop and resin taste. Dry and quiet, but surprisingly complex. Could drink these all night.

Bottle from Stein’s Deli in New Orleans. Deep amber with fluffy head and delicate lacing. Aroma is a sweet hoppiness. It starts sweet with light hop follow through and a slight bitter finish. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it does. Reminds me a little of a tame IPA.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Pours amber brown with a caramel head. Very strong citrus and pine aroma. This mellows and there is some malt in the taste, then as it warms the hops come back. Similar to a Summer Wine beer which eludes me at the time or writting, possibly Rogue.

For me it just wasn’t what I wanted in an amber. I do love a hoppy beer, but I didn’t drink this expecting to get the hops if an IPA, which is what happened. Still, though, certainly this is not a bad beer. Just a little disagreeable to my hankering at the time.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Deep copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops, pine, hint of citrus and hint of caramel/malt. Taste is hoppy, hint of citrus and caramel with a nice ending bitterness. A favorite one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

loubar (154) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 2, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Aroma is citrus, caramel and hazelnut. Taste is hoppy and spicy that fades to a light but sharp bitter. Hop dominated style, yet caramel, grass and some malt notes in the finish. Low carbonation. Tasty and refreshing session brew if you like this style.

Dark, malty flavor. Will tingle your tongue with spices and roasted hops. Pair it with spicy chicken wings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Pours deep amber, with a thick white fluffy head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine dominate, backed up by an aggressive better flavour that leads into malt and a sour grapefruit finish.
