Bottle. Dark amber. Spiced malt aroma. The taste adds pine and caramel. Big and rich for a pale ale. Good stuff. Typical stone.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts with with both floral and fruity hop character. Flavor is mostly sweet with the the fruity hop character taking more of a back seat. There is only a slight bitterness. I find this an excellently balanced beer where neither the malt or the hops hold a dominant sway. It is simply a well-crafted brew that accentuates each ingredient to create a highly drinkable yet flavorful beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber in color, clear without a lot of carbo’s.
A good amount of foaminess.
Balance aroma of hops and malts, hops are earthy and citrusy not overpowering.
A nice tasting brew with bready maltiness, and good bitter hop flavor nothing in particular hop wise just a bitter flavor. Dry finish.
A balanced beer with a nice body to it.
There’s some lacing down the glass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Beautiful red copper, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, peach, red berries, caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, peach, caramel, some black tea. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, with lemon zest, pine and some peach. Very good. Easy to drink, with some nice hop bite and a good balance between bitter hops and caramelic malts. The hop bill could be a bit more complex maybe, but overall a really enjoyable APA.
