COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep amber in color, Stone Pale Ale is robust and full flavored. A delicate hop aroma is complemented by a rich maltiness.

nice orange color- almost clear, slightly haze. Ample head, good lacing- stayed the whole way down (not that it lasted long). Aroma was nice- slightly floral with some sweet notes. I was expecting a little bitterness punch from the hops, i mean this is a Stone brew. But i was pleasantly suprised that the hops actually took a back seat to the malts here. Tatse was definitely sweet, but not overpowering- there was no sticky feel but it did lend a heavier body, even slightly chewy or bready. Hops seem to add more of the floral notes than bittering aspects. Again, the body was fantastic. Heavy enough to actually feel it without loading you down after having 1 or 2. Even chewy without being sticky, yet still a little crisp. Did I mention this went down real easy. Another great, yet somewhat different, Stone brew. I’m glad I bought a 6-pack

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a medium-sized head that stays around. Aroma is rather bready with a lot of sweet orange on top of it. Taste is balanced between malts and hops, though towards the end it gets hoppier and almost metallic. Lightly carbonated with a crisp, dry finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Well-rounded brew, though nothing mind-blowing.

nice amber hue, w/a white head, amora is sweet & malty. starts off a bit sweet, some hints of caramel a well, but ends w/dry bitterness. good balance...a good pale ale from stone.

Reddish copper pour with a decent sized head. Hoppy aroma with a touch of malt in the nose. The flavors are a bit thin but overall not bad. Not the best Stone offering but it will do.

More grassy with a touch of orangey citrus. Light body and thin malt presence. Watery with distinct hop presence.

Flaska från Bishop Arms i Lund. Trevlig american pale ale från Stone. Balanserad men hade väntat mig lite mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smallish but long-lasting white head. Mild aroma. Hints of lemon flavors which dissipates into a dry finish. Good session beer.

Stone’s Pale Ale is really good, but I prefer their other stuff over this one.

Bottle. Poured a darker copper color with a finger high off white head. Smells floral and a little earthy. I’m surprised how tame this IPA is for a product of Stone Brewing. The hop flavor is there but isn’t overpowering, and finishes smooth. I like Ruination or their IPA better than this, but this is very drinkable. Also has a sweet smell to it.
