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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Copper hue with good head. Nutty caramel aroma. Sweet and nutty as well when tasted but a good hopping follows, mostly orange citrus. Kidding me though. This is not a pale it's an amber.

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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.
