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.

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.

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 I’d like. Overall, a well balanced APA though a little less hops than I would like or expect.

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.

Amber with a medium white head that stays throughout the beer. Aroma is caramel, some citrus, biscuity notes. Flavor is caramel malt, some butteryness, ending is dominated by citrus with a bit of an odd metallic taste, although it’s not that strong. Finish is fairly short, in a lot of ways is similar to the IPA, but a little weaker but with an added biscuit-like flavor.

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Best pale ale I’ve had. Great rich amber color, with a thick rocky head. A sweet malty taste with hints of honey or caramel. Strong hop finish that lingers. Great compliment to a fish taco. Will drink again.

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - OCT 2, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Aroma is primarily malty with some nice citrusy notes from the hops. Pours an orange/amber color with a nice white foam head. Taste is caramel up front with some a solid hop finish creeping up shortly after. Nice body to this one. An awesome pale ale, amazingly sessionable. One of the best out there.

An awesome pale ale with all the hops you’d expect from Stone. Pours darker than your average pale ale. Tasted a bit "green" to me. Grassy and lightly fruity. For me, it makes a decent chugger.
