4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

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.

12oz bottle. This is a little to hoppy for me. Not bad though. For the price itís not for me but if you really like pale ales give it a shot.

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.

This is one of my favorite session brews, by far. Clean, hoppy, and somewhat mildly sweet in aroma. Nice tan head and mild lacing. Great clear copper red colors with nice carbonation. Flavor is smooth, crisp and very well balanced with a nice pine dry finish.

Couldnít get much aroma off this beer (yeah i swirled it around). What i did get was, surprise, hop bitterness and fruityness. Copper in color with creamy off white head. Dry, hoppy bitterness with undertones of mellon, perhaps, slightly there. Hops obviously dominates but there is enough malt to make in interesting. Leaves a nice lace around the glass. Great beer. Stone rocks!
