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.

Pours dark amber orange, darker than most ambers. Aroma of malt and roasted nuts. Flavor begins with roasted malt and finishes with a nice hoppy bang. Overall, a good amber ale.

12 oz bottle. Better than I was expecting, even as a fan of Stone. Beautiful aroma of grapefuit, citrus, and seemingly raisins. The flavor is very full for a 4.4% It’s subtle, but complex, and very similar to the aroma. Another winner from Stone.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with medium head. Aroma is tropical fruits, hops, malt, citrus, grassy and bit sweet. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, sweet tropical fruits, piney hops and malt. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Citrusy and grapefruity finish with hops and hint of rye. My bottle was almost outdated, so I can’t even imagine, how good this tastes fresh. In this ABV absolutely stunning!

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
12oz bottle - Ruby/amber color and makes a small white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with citrus hoppiness and lightly roasted. Taste starts out with a hoppy spice and finishes with a roasted malt character. Nicely balanced. Thin and smooth palate.
