Nice amber color with nice lacey head. Good solid aroma of hops that get your mouth watering. Flavor is nice and hoppy, but not as much as expected from the aroma. Great creamy texture with nice finish.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 12, 2003
Possesses a really nice aroma and a surprising amount of malt body. Of course, the hops are there, but something like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (the gold standard) probably has more hoppage than this beer. Very pleasant.

Thin head with a nice amber color. Great tasting as I had explected from Stone Brewery. I love all their products I have tried.

Draft at the Stone Kickoff at the Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC. Nice solid pale ale. Just the right amount hops.

madsberg (10111) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2003
Bottled: Cobber coloured. Decent head, that has a medium lasting. Aroma is hoppy but not as much as other examples from this mighty brewery. Seems a little more balanced. Flavour is smooth and hoppy and gives a pleasant felling on the tongue. I very much like the balanced bitterness in the end. Yet another great beer from Herbjones in sunny ca. Many thanks.

If, as the bottle say, this is their flagship beer, how come I can get every other of their non-seasonal except this one?! Regardless, hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Big hoppy aroma (grapefruit/flowery), supported by mild sweetness. Flavor is medium flowery hoppy, with hints of peach and grapefruit. Chewy body. No attempt to overwhelm you, which is somewhat unexpected in a Stone brew. Instead, what they've given is a delicious full-bodied beer.

This, is perhaps the best ale in the world. I never new an ale could taste this good, right out of the bottle! The boys at Stone really know what there doing! They've taken brewing to another level!

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Copper color with minimal head. Fresh citric hop aroma complimented by bready malts. Full malty flavor - this is much more malty than the average APA. Nice hop presence doesn't manage to overpower the malt. Lingering hop bitterness in the finish Very good pale.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2003
Clean copper color with a thin tan head. Delicat hop flowers are very present in the nose and continue into the mouth. Bready maltieness intertwines with hop flowers and make a superbe balance. A solid example of an american pale.

Chief (11) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Garnet colour in body with a clean citrus/orange flavour with a suble hint of almond. This beer glided back and forth across the palate. A nice flowing hoppy aroma throughout for a nice finish.
