Bottle. It poured a hazy medium brown that supported a large light brown rocky head that was bellowing above the top of the glass. It dissipated at a rapid pace leaving just a little residue behind, although it was enough for some really excellent lacing. The aroma was unusually complex with a mild scent of toasted malts, a nice dose of piney hops and an earthy yeast with hints of sweet fruit, honey and a nice citrus note. The taste had kind of a sweet-acidic flavor with a slight fruity note from the onset. Then it slowly but firmly became extremely bitter with a nice strong hop presence and a touch of citrus at the end. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and nice and dry in texture with a subtle soft carbonation. Overall a unique tasting brew that was very enjoyable. A must try for a Hop Head.

Brown pour with tan head. Bready caramel toffee aroma. Malty flavor with roasted character. Bitter grapefruit hop. Citrus lingering bitter finish. Taste is very "Stone". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pretty good for an amber. not my favorite, but not too far off. a little malt heavy, for Stone at least (not really a bad thing is it?), body is ok, flavor is nice. recommended."

Pours a dark red with a latte - colored sponge foam head. Strong malt aroma. Solid malt taste with an equal amount of hops bittering. Well carbonated with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Hanoi (422) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Nose is toffee, red berry, with light pine and citrus. Taste is pine, malt, red berry, slight rye then floral and peppery tones touch of lemon grass and salt in the finish. Itís more ESB than I finished, and the nose and taste donít marry well for me. Itís OK

mikedevilsfan (158) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Has a really nice malty taste to it. Almost an iced tea flavor. Easy to drink, and very little hops. Bready, bright, crisp without being boring. Very nice Amber ale, When you want malt go here.

CelticBrew (829) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle a surprisingly colorful pale copper, lots of orange hues with bright golds and rosy reds. Aroma is citrusy and piney, a touch of malt. Flavour is of caramel and malt, but well balanced by the hops. Aftertaste is quite malty as well, which lingers a bit. Overall a decent amber, however not that memorable.
