Too over the top for an amber, by over the top I mean hops. Bitter from the hops. Looks great in the glass, nice aroma, but too overwhelming

Amber color, citrus aroma, thin white head. Flavor is citrus, hops, fruity with a smokey bitter aftertaste. Somewhat thin mouthfeel. Normal carbonation

Amber color, fruity aroma, nice taste, and very little after effects. Excellent during or after a meal.

Another beer that I like very much from Stone Brewing Co. I wish there brewhouse was around the corner from me. No such luck though. Poured an amber color with a foamy ivory head. Citrus and malt punch in the first sip that I loved coming back for. Would definitely drink again!

Appearnace is dark copper with plenty of carbonation. Aroma is a huge, floral hoppy treat. Very surprising. Taste is big and hoppy. I had to check the label again to verify this was 4.4%abv. This is a really big beer for a session beer. Finishes very clean without an overwhleming hop note. This has got to be the little brother of Arrogant Bastard...

Nice pour - copper with a nice frothy head. Hops hit you up front but it’s well balanced even thought it’s only 4.4%. Biscuity with slight nuttiness and peppercorns in the background. Great Amber! Another solid Stone offering.
