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.

Huge hop aroma and flavor. Great session beer with massive taste for the level of 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 Ang’s 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 haven’t tried to many amber ales but this one will defiantly be unforgettable. It’s great in taste and the citrus really shines through in this great brew.

This is the beer that I return to after quaffing the heavy hopped brews. It is an excellent daily brew.

This beer was badass. Copper red with a HUGE off-white foamy head. It had a grassy hoppy smell with a good deal of grapefruit. Definitely a grassy, grapefruit taste with a crisp hoppy finish. This beer was the shit.

Amber red in color with a bit of suspended paticles. roasty, with a near perfect texture. lively, with a subtle lingering finish.
