This is a tones down version of the IPA. Different than most other pales I have tried. I like to great aroma and flavor of this beer. It has a fuller body than most pales (which I like). Malty sweet undertones. All around great beer.

Dastrn (115) - Warsaw, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Poured reddish brown with a thick, 2 finger, tan foamy head. nose contained burnt malt, lots of hops, and grapefruit. the taste is well balanced between roasted nut malts and hops, with less citrus than there was in the nose. Itís a little sharp on the palate, but I think it might just be a little too cold for the style. Next time, Iíll let it sit out for 5 minutes before I serve it. Overall, very impressive. Not as good as the FFF alpha king or nimbus pale ale, but itís a damn good ale!

This pours a hazy amber orange, with an off-white head. Leaves an alright lace. This has a sweet malt nose with a hint of spice. The taste is about the same with a nice bitter pine hop finish. A good beer.

njbfr (113) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2009
A pretty reddish amber with a thin white head. Nice, light, malty almost floral aroma. Fruity flavor of hops over a slightly sweet malty character. A little flat with a slightly bitter finish. Pretty clean mouthfeel. Decent lacing.

cryfreedmb (113) - Ocean, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Good stuff. Nice balance of hops and malt APA style. Not sure if itís better then SNPA or Troegs PA but a fine Pale Ale none the less. A good staple APA to keep in the fridge. Very drinkable.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Pours a dark copper/amber with a silky head, perfect level of carbonation, and lovely appearance. Aroma is of biscuits, caramel, and of grassy hops. Medium body. Taste is bready with grassy bitterness. Not nearly dry enough or bitter enough for an APA, it’s a good session beer nonetheless.

rodneykm (111) - Westminster, South Carolina, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Not too bad at all. Its a bit less hoppy than most stone beers are (but the hopps are defnintely still there). Really good beer. Canít wait for it to be available in SC.

Full of hops, but not overbearing. Sticks to what stone does best. Enjoyable over the long run. NOt that dark, head settles quickly, awesome stone. Very drinkable.

MrChris (110) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Light hoppy nose. Pours honey brown, slightly cloudy, with a medium white head. Taste medium hoppy on the IPA scale. No bitter after taste, but a dry ending. Not as frothy as a lot of pale ales. All to quickly this ale disappeared from the bottom of the glass, evidence of itís drink ability.
