Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is a hazy dark amber beer with a red fruit and spicy orange flavours, pine notes and a warming creamy peppery finish.

radarsock (920) - Vermont, USA - MAR 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Had experienced pine, two-row malt, American yeast, and hay on the nose and in the mouth. Why is it the day I actually tried this, was the day I had decided to visit California? Could have had this 20 different occasions. Strange. Went well with a bacon, spinach, and feta-topped pizza in town.

From the bottle. Dry bitter hops with minor pine and slight malt sweetness in the aroma. Taste is aggressive, dry bitterness with some pine and background sweetness. Clean mouthfeel. Okay.

threedap (12) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Just a solid APA, a go-to. Caramel malts and bitterness to counter, a well balanced beer

Mittenator (1309) - Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Mild hops with some caramel. Slightly malty with some hippie ness at the end.

czar (4436) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
pours unclear medium dark golden orange with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. toasted and lightly spiced maltiness - fresh cereals, caramel touch, very nice yet mild fruitiness - peaches, citrus, oranges, almost like some lagering fruitiness, few pine needles, pepper, grass, pinch of dirt. moderate to low carbonation - slightly lacking, light body, herbal-grassy-citrusy-gently piney balanced finish. did i say a balanced stone brew? yes, and it is tasty and dangerously quaffable. much enjoyed! in my sense, a great example of what an american pale ale oughta be, which would be, as obvious as it seems, an american twist to an english pale ale..

miura1966 (10) - Temecula, California, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Solid brew...always a good go to brew...decent aroma but the crisp clean falvor that is not too crazy works well...no Pliny...but sometimes you need a good solid pale and this is it.

This beer has a real offputting taste. Seems they could have saved this with more hops and an IPA label but as it stands it’s got a weak non-distinct taste.

Flaska från Bishop Arms i Lund. Trevlig american pale ale från Stone. Balanserad men hade väntat mig lite mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stravale (2104) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle @ Hanly’s Bar, Stokestown [030214]
Amber, clear, big frothy white head
Aroma - soft citrus, touch of grapefruit, piney hops, caramel malts
Taste - citrus zest, piney hops, orange zest, quite a light caramel malt background, not too malty
Palate - medium carb, light to medium body, quite sweet. Finish of bitter zest, lingering bitter hops
Overall - Quite a soft beer from Stone
