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.

Not a bad beer. When you first smell this you will think, wow that smells like an IPA. The aroma is identical of that of a well balanced IPA. Then you taste it. Yes the hoppines is there but it is oddly very sweet. It is almost like a combination of a Saison and an IPA. Pretty good stuff overall.

Right. A very good hoppy ale. Noticeable hops, especially on the aftertaste. Not bitter.

Dark red colored body with a small khaki colored head. Smell is sweet caramel malts and a lot of citrus and pine hops. Taste is also sweet caramel and toffee upfront from the malts. A nice and strong hoppy finish.

Nice pine aroma. Medium hop with a light sweetness on the taste. Very balanced ale. Taste like a stone.

Despite its somewhat watery consistency, it displays a very balanced character of simple ingredients. The slightly hoppier than usual finish makes it a little more interesting than the average amber ale. A great session beer.

Color is amazing. A deep rich amber tone that belies the light ale. Although alcohol is subdued it is *not* a watery beer. Notes of grass and coffee are most obvious. Bitterness is subdued and I think this is a huge plus. Great beer.

Stone’s signature hop character lead this beer to be quite similar to their IPA and Arrogant Bastard, but with a very nice toasty malt finish that lingers. If you love strong San Diego hopping but want something sessionable, this is the one.

Awesomeness. Great great balance of hoppy and a little citrus. Goes down so easy. Superb session beer. Bring it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours cloudy copper with a beige head. Aroma is citrus and pine with a pleasant mix of yeast ale esters. Carbonation level is low. Taste is slightly biting (bitter). Nice malt, piney, but falls flat in the after taste.

On tap at Flanagan’s Ale House. I’d never had this before, as it is not available in KY. But, it was still on after last Thursday’s Stone promo with Greg. Anyway, nice citrusy nose. Clear beautiful amber color. Medium bodied, with nice blanace of roasty malts and spicy hops. Immensely drinkable.
