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

Medium amber color with little hop aroma. Strong malt flavor with a nice hop balance. Finishes strong with a good aftertaste.

Pours a dark, reddish amber with a generous, off-white head. Hoppy (pine) bouquet up front supported by subtle malt fragrances. Big hop flavor, again supported by a fruit maltiness, followed by a fair amount of hop bitterness, but not too much for the style. Malt flavors become more assertive, bringing out pear and toffee, as the beer warms into the 50s. Creamy, almost slick mouthfeel, and a clean, biscuity finish. Won’t be my favorite , unlike a lot of purported APAs, it definitely nails the style.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Aroma is of caramel malts and light citrus hops. Flavor is pretty bold for a pale ale. Reminiscent of a lighter IPA. Stone does it again with a fantastic beer.

From the bottle to the shaker glass I get a great pour with a white to off-white head. The head is steady with lacing down the glass. A very sexy beer with a dark copper to amber color. Nice tones of piney biscuit with sourdough pretzel and light touches of mustard on the nose. The hops are upfront but mild with the finish superbly balanced by the malts. The finish is crisp and never overly sweet or too hoppy. Pleasant medium to light mouthfeel. This beer achieves a balance that is rare and delicious.

Great beer. Tastes good, looks good, smells good. We had nothing in common. maybe thats why I like it so much. But anyway, I was glad I had this. It was deeply intricate. You will fully enjoy this without any quims or quams. Unless ofcourse you want too have quims or quams then by all means.

I’m rather impressed with this one and can see why there is high marks, it is definately one of the best pale ales in the world. Incredible amber body with a brooding head, good lacing the way down... excellent malted body and balanced arangement of hops, body is quite creamy for such a low alchohol beer, overall, very nice beer and it is definately tops in the pale ale deparment.

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

Clear medium amber color-- nice, white cream head that has nicelacing. Nose is freshly hoppy, a little bit sweet and citrusy. Clean,mouthfeel, quite smooth. Love the palate

On tap at the brewery. A nice tasting easy drinking brew. The IPA’s and imperials rock, but you wouldn’t want to slam pitchers of them. This is a nice brew that is complex enough to impress beer geeks, but simple enough not to scare way all the "Amstel Light" Kids....

Blah. I am content with the Stone IPA, so figured I would give it a chance. Completely lost my interest because of the bland taste...watery.
