How do these guys do it ? They cornered the market on the worlds best brewery. Genius, pure genius. This brew pours amber honey w/ a shallow, creamy froth. Aroma is malty. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are bright and mellow with a malty fruit character. The finish has a perfect bittering yet wet. Overall: I like it alot. Nice finish, refined, well ballanced. It’s perfect.

I’ve always thought of APAs as the Ale equivalent to amber lagers: just middle-of-the-road, non-inventive, stylistically inflexible beers. If you’ve had one APA, you’ve had them all. The orange-y start, the generic hops tone, the entirely indistinguishable malt finish. Just about the most neutral, safe pale ale one can seek. This one delivers in all categories. Fully undistinctive, pleasant but not memorable, and leaving not a single quality in the afterglow worth mentioning. Not a bad beer by any account. Instead, this is just a decent beer, and the thought of wasting any time describing the nose (none worthy of mention), the lacing (none), the downtake (same as any other of this kind), the aftertaste (same again)...you get the idea. Ballast’s Yellowtail is about as popular on tap around here as this, and that one is a mystery to me. Maybe the guys at Stone should step up to the plate and make this one a little more distinctive and a little less generic. The local brewers around here hang their collective hats on their IPAs, as they should, since each SD brewer brings a personal touch to the IPAs they offer. This...this is just Stone Pale Ale, and I can walk around the corner right now and see a homeless dude drinking it outside the corner store. Seriously. Once again, a good beer. Once again, no better than any of the other starter "good beers", like Fat Tire or Yuengling Lager, or any other world of other middling slighty hoppy ales.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Orange-tinged amber pour with a small dense cap of off-white foam. Light floral aroma with a gentle malt sweetness. Clean sweet malt flavor seemlessly blended with a subdued but not bashful hop presense. A little orange liqueur in the finish. A tasty pale ale, though for a Stone, it seems a bit lacking in hop aroma.
