My hopes were high for this one, but it was not the best pale ale Iíve had. Iíd like to see more crisp hoppiness. Donít get me wrong, its a tasty beer, but I guess I just hold Stone to a higher standard.

Bottle. Pours a rich orange color with big fluffy white head that leaves good lacing around the glass. Aroma is caramel and lemons. Flavor is sweet and filled with malt which is then nicely cut by by the tangyness of the hops as it hits the back of the mouth. A good solid offering from a brewery that is really doing things right at the moment.

Bottle. Amber color with thin head and little lacing. Smell is sweet caramel maltyness with slight pine hop presents. Taste is grapefruit, resinous, strong caramel malt pine, and a little spice on the end. Medium carbonation, mouthfeel feels spritzy. Good pale ale.

Pours a dark hazy orange with a beige head. Has aromas of hops, fruit, pine, and floral. The flavors were Hops, malt, citrus and fruit. An excellent APA.

Different and better than I expected for an APA. The commercial description is right on: the great floral aroma of the west coast hops dominate the aroma, while a perfect balance of maltiness rounds out he flavor. Tasty and refreshing.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2006
A very clean looking ale, much more red than I expected. Head was pretty bubbly but dissipated to a thin film. Slightly hoppy aroma, but not near as much as the IPA. Dry character, slightly sweet malty flavor. Overall, an excellent brew.

Clear copper with a tan frothy head. Earthy, floral aromas backed by a light sweetness. Spicy taste up front with the earthy taste mixed with light caramel and a bitter hop and pale malt finish. Balance is definitely tipped in the balance of hops but a crisp mouthfeel makes it fairly refreshing.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Very nice fresh and clean taste of malt sweetness with just the right amount of hops for a pale ale. This is the best pale ale I have had so far.

Bottle. Aroma is light pine with some floral notes. Reddish copper color; brilliant clarity with light tan head that last. Flavor is a very good balance between malt and hops. Bitterness is mellow, not quite as sharp as Iíd like. Overall, a well balanced APA though a little less hops than I would like or expect.
