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.

Bottle. Chestnut with a small beige head, and heavy scummy looking sediment suspended throughout. Grapefruit hops and light caramel malt aroma. Roasty caramel malt and pine / grapefruit peel hops flavor. This would have been more enjoyable had it not been so ugly.

Originally reviewed: 6/17/09. Pours a clear amber color with a massive ivory head on top. Excellent retention. Looks like the top of a milkshake. Some spotty lacing. Smells very citrusy and hoppy. Very nice. Reminds me of Nugget Nectar. The mouth on this is weak. Very thin and wet. I see plenty of rising bubbles in it, and a decent head, but there is no carbonation crispness at all. Disappointing. Flavor is pretty tame as well. I expected more from this. Some bitter hops right away, but this gives way to bready sweetness. I expected more along the lines of a NN, or something of that sort. This was far short. I wonít seek this out again.

The labelís description is right - thereís a lot of flavor here for a 4.4% ale. Thereís an acetyl phenol burn though that drags it down, along with a nasty aftertaste. Itís ok, but it doesnít match up to the other stuff from Stone. This is possibly the worst of theirs Iíve ever had.

Looks like whiskey in the glass... clear amber, and low viscosity. It holds a white ring head. The aroma is sweet floral hop resin but in a mild quantity. The taste is just flat and doesnít resemble much of anything. The mouthfeel is foamy and empty. Stick to the aroma on this one. And if you like to chug milcorbud light, chug this instead. Then those big boobie girls in bikinis will start falling all over you.

Bottle @ Bazaar, Miami. The pourís medium brown with a discreet tan head. The nose is mild citrus, some nut cake, notes of toasted malts, caramel. The taste is strong orange peel, citrus, a bit of toasty malts. Smooth, creamy, light body. Overall, OK.

Low abv, though it doesnít taste like it; still a little hoppy for my taste, but a solid brew.

jeremyh70 (832) - Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Bishops Folkis, February 2013. Clear amber with a medium white head. On the sweet side with toffee, malt and some hops. Nothing sensational but easy to drink.
