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 an amber bronze with a small white head. smells like a rose garden covered in sugar and extremely inviting. alot of different fruit notes. the nose was definitly the sweet spot for this brew. it stood out. the taste is perfect. well balanced. not as bitter as i like, or expect from stone, but the most enjoyable amber ever. the plate is smooth and curious. overall an awsome and very casual beers. alot of food pairing possibilities.

Bottle, Utobeer, 33cl, celebrating Angís birthday! Awesome, sharp, citric hops, exceptional bitterness, fantastic lacing, dark-murky opaque colour, some spices on the edge of the tongue, dry finish, very malty for an IPA, good toffee measurement, just an exceptional beer. Drinkability is insane, low carbonation, just an outstanding IPA.

just what I would expect from stone in this category. decent hop on the nose. pours amber with a creamy head. first taste more hops than expected then mellows to display the malts better. second sip more balanced, medium on the palate. very nice for those who want more than an amber, but not quite ready for Stone IPA.

I havenít tried to many amber ales but this one will defiantly be unforgettable. Itís great in taste and the citrus really shines through in this great brew.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 A splendid amber ale. The amber color is absolute perfection. Thereís a subtle fruitiness with hints of citrus and berry. That tangy/sweet balance is reflected in the hop character. The hops really reveal themselves in the finish. Itís bitter but also a bit herbal. I kept chasing that amazing finish. Sadly, that pursuit always leads to an empty glass in far too little time.

Aroma is a nice blend of pine and sweetness. It poured a nice amber color with a long lasting eggshell colored head. Absolutely amazing taste! Nice pine tasting hops but not overpowering and a good malt sweetness with it. Light body with a slick mouth feeling and average carbonation. Love this stuff.

Keg @ Jolly Butchers courtesy of Ozzy 2013/3/11. Big hoppy nose. Bitter but balanced. Great body, carbonation and head. A little dry at first before the sweetness evens it out then a lingering bitterness. Very impressive considering the modest ABV.

Bottle-drink by 5/4/14. Nice deep copper color with a huge head. Crystal clear. Aroma of fruity hops--tangerines, apricots. Medium mouthfeel, slightly sweet, very balanced. Touch of fruity hops on the tongue as well. Nice bitterness, but not overdone. Hops hang around for a long finish.

Pours a transparent copper color with plenty of bubbles and a foamy white head. Has a grassy, pine, aroma. Taste is heavy on the pine, with some citrus and moderate hops. This has the character of an IPA more so than any amber ale I have had, but itís the best amber Iíve had so far. Has a medium body feel with some carbonation. Delicious.
