An awesome pale ale with all the hops you’d expect from Stone. Pours darker than your average pale ale. Tasted a bit "green" to me. Grassy and lightly fruity. For me, it makes a decent chugger.

Blah. I am content with the Stone IPA, so figured I would give it a chance. Completely lost my interest because of the bland taste...watery.

Welcome to NC Stone Brewing Co.! While pale ales are not my preferred beer of choice, I do have to admit as they go, this is a good one. The pour is a nice copper, with a decent white head. The nose is well balanced with hops, malt and even a hint of sugars. The taste is equally well balanced, refreshing and leaves a nice lemon aftertaste, but is not nearly as hopped as some of their other ales. Worth trying and is a winner for its style.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 12 oz bottle I found this offering from Stone to be pretty average in comparison to their other ales. It’s certainly better that most pale ales, but that said, it is a far cry from Ruination, Arrogant and Double Bastard. Or smoked porter. Just sayin.

SD trip, sampler: Amber to copper pale ale with piney and citrus notes. This may have seemed less flavorful due to the Sublimely I was having at the time.

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.

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

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.
