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

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.

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.

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?

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.
