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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 OK, so it’s not their best offering but it is their best selling, by far. Nice and hoppy for a pale, but what do you expect from San Diego?

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Fresh hoppy aroma with a very slight hint of malt. Rusty in color. Refreshing wet palate with a great balance of medium hopping and mild sweetness. The finish is relatively dry and somewhat hoppy.

Racegoer (353) - Indiana, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2003
garnet burgandy color,excellent aroma smells of cotton candy. Malty thick and rich drank slightly below cellar temperature. Finish is unique nutty & malty.Very complex ale I would not have believed it was less than 8% ABV, maybe its Double Bastards Little brother--Mini Bastard. This beer is as balanced as any I have had. I wish a few cases could be sent this way, I would stock up. Reminds of mixing a Barley Wine with an traditional Pale Ale, this is in no way a traditional Pale Ale, though it absolutely is a top 50 beer. Highly Recommended, special thanks go out to Mr.ArrogantBastard for sending this superb well crafted beer.

After reading this beer's ratings I was excited to try it. It was a decent pale ale, but I wonder if I got a bad bottle... it didn't do much more for me than other pale ales.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Full red amber; foresty nose w/ some candyish notes. Earthy, chewy character with notes of cocoa and wisps of lemony hops overlaying a solid malt footing.

Aroma is sweet, the taste is impressive and lasts throughout the entire bottle, leaves a good aftertaste. Definitely desirable and good for lunch or dinner. RERATE 01/03/03: Perhaps a bit giddy on my last rating...my first taste in many months. Good malty sweetness to be found everywhere...a caramel malt base provides for a sweet smell and a good thorough taste...a little light on appearance from the tap however...thinning head and mild carbonation. Still an excellent delicacy from Stone.
