Deep amber in color, Stone Pale Ale is robust and full flavored. A delicate hop aroma is complemented by a rich maltiness.

Bottle: Courtesy of Duane via trade. Aroma is malty with cookie and caramel with light grapefruit hoppiness. Pours a bright transparent amber with a nice white head with decent retention. Great lacing. Very malty with lots of cookie dough, caramel, and light fruitiness up front with a light floral hoppy finish.

draft at brewery. tasted like a milder version of all their other beers. how about some imagination stone? still, i applaud them for everything they’ve done for beer. i like this as a session beer, and perhaps within styles this is my favorite stone brew.

A fairly boring APA as far as i’m concerned. Seems like a really watered down arrogant bastard.

OK, I know Duane just said the same thing, but I also just had a Dales Pale Ale last night, and this has nothing on it. This APA doesnt have much body, the taste dies very quickly... its just kind of blah. nothing really sticks out. there are other APAs out there that are much more worthy of your time. on a more positive note it was at least nice to look at. nice amber color, nice off-white head, and a little bit of lacing on the side of the glass. the rest of the beer just didnt match up though

Thanks to Sarah for the bottle. The body is a slightly hazy dark orange and almost copper color. The head is light khaki and a hint of yellow. The aroma has some oranges and caramel. There is also a hint of flowers A very tame smelling beer. The taste is toasted walnuts with some caramel and iced tea. There is a little bit of bread crust. The body is smooth with a light amount of carbonation. A good expample of the style, but more subtle than I expected.

12 oz. bottle picked up at Applejack in the Denver suburbs. drank this right after an Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale. this does not compare, lacking in hop aroma & flavor to the Dale’s APA. by itself, this is a decent brew, but in comparison, its just not as good as other APA’s. this Stone brew may be riding the coattails of some of the breweries outstanding beers to get an average rating of 3.75.

A quality pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma - probably cascades - but still not as enjoyable as the alesmith pale ale, which is bigger and better in every way.

Hazy amber pour...smallish white head. Bigger than expected hoppy nose...big Cascade. Chewy...didn’t expect that. Nice malt balance with this one...yet hoppier than any pale ale this side of India. I’d avoided this one in lieu of Stone’s other offerings...shame on me...this one is very good.
