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

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, Hogtown Harry, courtesy of Harry. Dark orange, small bubbly white head. Nice pleasant strong hop aroma. Really pleasant malt and hop taste - well balanced, mild, and enjoyable. Earthy tea-like hops in taste. Very good without going anywhere near over the top - would love to have a pint or two.

Bottle. Deep orange body with a small white head. Mited resionous hops inthe aroma. Pleasant bitterness, with slight caramel malt in the finish. Mild fruity citrus. Average palate. Flavour seems to be cumulative, in that the complexity grows the faster I drink and diminishes when I pause to take notes. Pleasant, but lacks the oomph of their other products. Strikes me as something a pint would do better justice too though. Glad to try it even though it underwhelmed.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2005 Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev - courtesy of yours truly. Poured cloudy red-amber-orange with a large lasting foamy-bubbly off-white head. Aroma of typical rich, resiny citrus hops, solid malt backbone, touch of sourness - straightforward but nice. Taste is a solid if unspectacular west coast pale ale - plenty of malt, the bitterness is there but not overwhelming - very easy drinking. Creamy, average body. Very nice, not their best but a pleasant mild session brew.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 11, 2005
12oz bottle from Santa! Pours a dark orange color with a thin white foamy head. A center stream of very tiny bubbles move quickly towards the surface. Nose is light apricot, some thick sweet malt notes, caramel, little bit of grass. A nice full mouthfeel. A candy like taste, quite sweet, notes of orange seeds, light tangerine, quite fruity and sweet. A nmice bitterness in the finish that spreads from your throat to the tip of your tongue.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Pours with a rocky off-white head with lots of lacing on a golden body. Strong aroma of hops with some spices. Good malty flavor with hints of hops on a solid body. Very drinkable.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2005
A light carmel white head to begin with. Pine aroma that’s mixed with spices to give a nice after-taste. Far less agressive than your typical Stone brew. Very enjoyable, it is unfortunate that one has to order it via the internet to get it in Virginia.

Is this a hop devil I see before me? No ... it’s not quite as hoppy. But the basic idea is more Hop Devil than Ruination, more Cascade than Willamette, more orange and pine than grapefruit. Really nice beer ... just a little bit less hoppy and less intense than an IPA (of course) but more like a small IPA than a traditional American Pale. I’ll stick with the Stone IPA, I think.
