UPDATED: JAN 1, 2009 grabbed a 12 oz bottle, great smooth taste, white head that stays for the duration, smooth and balanced with a hoppy taste, thinner in body than other pale aleís all, very good.

Bottle. Dark amber with a creamy head. Nice hop aroma with a maltiness that dosn’t infringe on the hops. Very nice palate. Flavor starts out hoppy with a well balanced malt finish. An excellant beer.

My go-to everyday beer. Perfectly balanced hops and complex aromas. The color is classic with a nice reddish hue. A mouthful of balanced flavor and just fizzy enough. British pale ale style with a California flare. I donít know if a quaffer can get better than this.

Drank straight from the bottle at a party so canít comment on the color, but aroma was a nice mixture of hops and malts. Taste was basically the same with the hops coming through enough to make is a very nice tasting pale ale. Will be buying again.

Probably the best American Pale Ale Iíve tried yet, but if Iím going to buy a Stone Beer its going to be their India Pale Ale. Overall, this is pretty good if you arenít in the mood for something too hoppy.

Great tasting pale ale with caramel, citrus peel and spices. The hops were there but not overwhelmingly so. I would buy this one frequently and I plan on it. Yet another great beer by Stone.

The guy I drank this with described it as Sierra Nevada, only doubled and also said that this should be Stoneís IPA. In a way heís right. This is totally a flavorful pale ale and to say itís double Sierra Nevada is in my opinion, about right. As for the IPA remark this guy made, the only thing I will say is that Iíve had IPAís that arenít as hoppy as this beer is. Good example of a pale ale.

Nice aroma with a touch of fruitiness.NIce clear copper appearance.The flavor was smooth then a touch bitter but finished clean. It felt good on the palate and overall the beer is solid.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 Pours reddish gold. Offwhite, fluffy, long lasting head. Balanced malt and hop taste make smooth drinking. Pronounced character. Wonderful stuff.
