3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Dark amber/copper with a nice white head that holds on and leaves nice lacing.
S: Toasted malt aroma with brown sugar some citrus and hint of pine.
T: Malt taste with touch of caramel up front that is quickly taken over by a citrus hop flavor and finishes with a floral bitterness that borders on being astringent.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes semi dry.
D: Simplistic in its taste. A bit more malt would have been appreciated and the borderline astringency keeps it from being a better beer for my taste.

Good hop aroma. Amber color with a solid head. Medium to light body. Hoppy amber with the right touch of malt to avoid being thrown into the vast sea of Stone IPA’s.

I wanted to like it, as I do most of Stone’s beer, but I could not get over the lack of alcohol content that doesn’t help the taste.

One of best ambers out there...heard they were dumping this too. Amber and light malts in aroma, some red wine grapes and biscuit malts. Finishes pretty clean with the residual sweetness from the amber malts.

Light brown to umber in color. Small, but stable canvas colored head. Mild herbal hops atop a floe of caramel. Fairly light and airy in feel. Lightly sweet and slightly toasty. Just a bit of herbal and citric hops balance. Big return of caramel in the finish and linger. Nice flavorful session brew. 2/10
