Not my favorite stone, I was pretty disappointed. Too much of a fruity aftertaste for me, over seemed a little flat tasting.

pours orange and cloudy with a white head. nose is a little hoppy. flavor is smooth, no over the top hops, solid malt presence. nothing to go nuts over but a good example of an apa.

Pours a nice dark amber with a frothy, creamy head that has good retention. Nice malty aroma with a slight hint of hops. Strong malty flavor with a good balance of bitterness. Has a good thirst amount of carbonation that tingles the tongue lightly.

Ahh, a nice package of Stone arrived for me on Halloween. First off I try the Pale. This beer amber color and filtered. The taste was smooth and malty- slighty fruity. A pretty dank beer if I must say so.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells great, lots of light fruity, flowery aroma. Pours a copper/amber with a bubbly head. Taste reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada’s brew. Lots of light fruit, citrus, apricot, some peach. Lots of malt, only a bit of hops. Very good stuff here.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a rich amber with a slight white head leaving some nice lacing. Smell is rich malty goodness with hints of caramel and subtle citrus notes. Carbonation is mild and it's fairly light bodied. Taste is very malt forward. Rich toffee notes with a slight citrus backing make for a delightful pale!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2005 Darker in color than most pale ales...but the flavor is not as robust to match. Lots of sweetness in this one with a hoppy finish. Nutty taste. Feels kind of "light" for a Stone brew. Would rather be drinking thier IPA and I even prefer the quiet complexity of their Levitation Ale to this.
