Bottle. Hazy dark amber with a small bubble white head. Aroma has sweet wort, caramel, honey, floral and pine hops. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, a bit too much unfermented wort sweetness. Smooth and medium body.

Ótima APA da Stone! Cor laranja, com media formação de espuma, aroma cítrico, herbaceo. Na boca, corpo médio, ótimo amargor, com notas gramíneas, grapefruit, com bom equilíbrio. Final seco, amargo e refrescante. Boa drinlability. Ótima breja!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Churchkey. Very surprised I haven’t rated this beer before. Dark amber body with tiny oily head. Nose is hammy, malty, quite smokey in my opinion. Taste is also of malts, hammy notes. Nice one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Champane’s. Pours hazy copper with white lacing. Fruity aroma with pepper and caramel. Taste of marmalade, bready and caramel malts, with big dry bitter finish. Good stuff, but not as good as their IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark copper color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma of some pine, malt sweetness and bit of spice. Taste of caramel sweetness, some pine and grain. Nice bitterness and fairly dry finish. Medium body and quite smooth, with a decent balance. Nice pale ale without being in your face hoppy.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour amber. Nose some grassy hop but predominant malt. Taste bitter bite up front, then strong malt presence. Long bitter finish. Typical to many APAs, more about the bitter hop than the aromatic or flavoring. This is my least favorite of Stone’s typical yummy glory of the hop.

Probably less than fresh but not among the better pale ales. Very light on palate. Pours dark orange-maroon with very good lacing and head. Aroma predominantly of malt with light hops. Finishes a little bitter. Bottle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours copper orange in color. The head is medium bodied and as it disperses, it clings well to the side. Pleasant smell of pine and resin. Quality taste with a bit more bitterness than I expected. Overall a very good brew.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] lite sötma och karamell i aroman och humle ;) lite spretig i smaken tycker jag ändå. Rätt lätt i kroppen.
