One of the best APA’s around. Citrus hops abound in the aroma. Light crystal malt flavor leads into assertive hopping and a lasting bitter citrus finish. Amazingly smooth, creamy palate without being flat.

This is my most fav. beer in the world.....hence the perfect 5.Great white (not shark) head not to foamy not too flat. The aroma has a prickly hoppy fruity flavor which matches its overall flavor. Not too tart but a slight fruity similar too a Bass but much more. Big backbone on malty flavor very smooth thouout the tastbud transfusion and the aftertaste goes on and on...no skunkyness

Bottle: Citrusy nose with some doughy malts in the back; well balanced and tasty; a bit flat and oily on the palate

Tasted it twice at the brewery (they don’t ship it out because it doesn’t stay well). From what I remember, it was a good amount of malt that came through for a regular pale and the hopiness of most stones. Excellent for style.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 29, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Aroma of soft citrus and a freshly mowed lawn. Color a pale copper, topped with an especially sticky and lacy off-white. Flavor is a nice subtle grass and butter, with some cream notes and a profusion of fresh ruby red grapefruit. A pretty superb and highly drinkable brew. Palate is fairly impeccable, with warming notes and general drinkability. Finish a little dry, but well balanced.

Copper Coloring with White Ring. Sweet Malt, Dry Hop. Heavy Dry Mouthfeel and Malty Aftertaste. Nice Solid Pale Ale.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size lasting off-white head. Very pleasant aroma of fresh citrus hops with a nice amount of caramel malt to balance it out. Delicious flavour starts hoppy followed by some sweet maltiness and ends with a nice bitterness. Well balanced and medium bodied. One of Stone’s mellower beers, it would make for a great session ale.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Colour of orange pekoe tea with a moderate off-white head. Aroma holds a mellow, pleasant hoppiness - a little soapy, but not in a bad way. Flavour has a great malt-hop balance, with a slightly earthy taste and a nice bitterness that sneaks up on you as the beer warms. Again, a fine US ale that would be an instant session beer for me if the lunkheads at the LCBO actually started carrying it...

badgerben (4595) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Copper color with no head. Grainy aroma with a slight hop end. The taste is overwhelemed with a bland grain smoothie-like taste. Some earthy hops, but not enough to counteract the bad part. Disappointing.
