First rate pale ale. Nice hoppy (floral) aromatics. Just the right amount of carbonation. Chewy and nutty with a darkish amber hue.

Mmm. Pleasant floral hop aroma. Sweet maltiness gives way to bitter hops. After one glass, it’s taken its place near the top of my list of favorite pales.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Thought I’d finally give this a more realistic rating: Bottle. Dark amber, slightly orangish with a good beige head. Big hop aromas (pine/citrus) with a caramel backing. Clean tasting, surprisingly malty (toasted malts, some biscuit), but the citrus hop flavor with a bit of spiciness dominates. Flavors some together very well and strike a balance - an in your face balance when you consider this is a pale ale, but balance none the less. It still wins our blind taste tests. I’ve had this beer many times and it has never failed to impress. In a blind taste test of 8 southern california pale ale’s, this beer came first on 7 of the 8 taster’s lists.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 This was a really powerful pale ale. Bold and stately flavor. Stone brewing really knows how to make beer and their labels are so cool.

amber colour, nice lace, strong hop aroma, smooth, lot of character, long bitter and slightly spicy aftertaste. Could well be the best pale ale I have ever tasted.
