Not impressed with this one at all. As far as a pale ale goes... I can’t realy taste the hops in it. Too rich a maltiness for a pale ale. It’s not even pale... it’s copper.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an off honey color. Has a medium ambery tinted head that lasts for about a minute with little cratering. Aroma of malt, nitrous oxide, and a slight sourness. I was supprised by the taste of this highly acclaimed beer. It was not as good as everyone raves. It is an ordinary tasting pale ale. Mostly malty with a slight hop after taste; no unique aftertastes. If you want an origanal pale ale try Flying Dog’s or even Sierra Nevada’s.

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.
