3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
A: Pale biscuity malts, floral hops, and citrus notes.
A: Pours an orangish-brown with a nice, frothy, three-finger, white head that slowly dissipates ending in a solid lace.
T: Hop forward with nice citrus notes, and a very strong malt backbone. Very well balanced. Smooth, and crisp.
P: Medium body and mild carbonation. Not the smoothest finish but still very good.
O: Another solid beer from Stone Brewing. Definitely worth buying again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle bought in the gift shop outside Margaritaville drank back in the suite, 01/11/13. Veiled orange bronze with a dense cream collar. Aroma has liquorice, fenugreek-like spice, peach and chip shop batter. Flavour of soap, peachy hop, lavender and pine buried in sponge-like malt. Lingers like shampoo at the back of the tongue. Bitter. And bitterly disappointing.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks great, clear red/orange with an ample off-white head. Aroma mainly taken up by pine hops. The hops also provide flavors of citrus with smaller pine notes hiding in there. The malts provide clean and sweet caramel flavors. The carbonation is a little harsh, but a good thick and sticky mouthfeel otherwise. The aftertaste is bitter yet floral hop. Amazingly drinkable and refreshing pale ale.

Bottle at b-laws. Poured a copper color. Medium head. Nice hop bitterness with a malty big backbone. Caramel tones, bread, with piney floral hops. Clean and nice bitter finish. Surprised I never rated this. A classic beer.
