This is my most fav. beer in the world.....hence the perfect 5.Great white (not shark) head not to foamy not too flat. The aroma has a prickly hoppy fruity flavor which matches its overall flavor. Not too tart but a slight fruity similar too a Bass but much more. Big backbone on malty flavor very smooth thouout the tastbud transfusion and the aftertaste goes on and on...no skunkyness

It poured a darker orange-brown with minimal head that dispersed quickly. The smell of hops was obvious but not strong or overwhelming at all--really got put your nose to it. Feels slighty bitter and bubbly in the mouth. The taste in a strong, hoppy one, slightly bitter. You can tell the alcohol is there but not strongly. Definitely drinkable and would recommend.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma is floral hops with a little bit of biscuity malt. Flavors are floral hops, citrus hops, some Caramel malts as well. Nice, crisp finish.

Copper color with a dense head of foam. Medium levels of carbonation, and mild lacing in the glass .Aromas that are sweet and a small amount of grapefruity hops. Smooth, small hop presenceand a dry end. It does have a small dry aftertaste.

12 fl oz bottle. Cellar temperature. Pours a lovely amber red with a fluffy head. The aroma was very subtle, hoppy and pleasant. The taste is smooth with a slight bitter after taste. All in all not as outrageous as some of the other Stone Brewing beers. I can see this as an easy drinking every day beer. Wish we could get this in Montreal.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was a great malty smell with a hint of hops. No head at all. The tasted was really clean and easy. A great amount of hops, malt and yeast all balanced well. It was smooth and light on the palate. Would suggest.

Medium refreshing hops aroma. Salt, honey, grass, peaches and buttery apple pie. Easy going palate builds to a nice astringent finish. Good pefume hops backbone. Sour apple flavor. Syrup on pancakes, bisquity malts to balance it out.

A quality pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma - probably cascades - but still not as enjoyable as the alesmith pale ale, which is bigger and better in every way.

I love everything that this brewery puts out, so maybe my opinion is a little biased. This beer is fantastic on a hot Las Vegas day. Malt and hops balanced well into a piney-citrus and refreshing finish. Great beer!
