UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Nice deep amber color, big frothy cream-colored head, yeasty malt aroma. A bit of pine? Tast is hoppy with a big helping of malt. Heavy mouth feel. Tasty. Very different from my usual pale ale (Sierra Nevada). Stone is darker and heavier. A very good ale. Update: Just drank this after having a Stone IPA, and was less impressed. Perhaps the IPA overpowered the APA, so I wonít change the score now. Will have it again in the future to see if it warrants a change.

Pine and lemon , nice caramel and grain cereal malt backbone. Really refreshing, smooth finish - balanced and sessionable, one of Stoneís better offerings.
Sampled at Roziís Wine & Liquor, Stone Tasting Event, Lakewood, OH.

A very drinkable pale ale. Surprisingly hoppy for the style with a long bitter finish. Aroma of caramel and dough. Medium body and creamy texture.

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2010
This is one of the beers that Stone donít want me to have...search AussieBrewsNews and grey imports for more info on this silliness. Despite the brewers worries however this beer seems to have made the treacherous journey to Australia in pretty good shape. Slightly cloudy amber to copper with a thick long lasting head. Juicy citrus and flowery aromas with some malt behind. Thin to medium body very smooth despite the high carbonation with a nice lingering bitterness. If this is an example of the dangers of grey imports I say bring it on. This is a great beer that Iíd love to have regularly.

Bottle. Blind buy. Smells like a pale ale, looks like an amber. Itís a little more bitter than Iíd like, but the aroma keeps talking to me in the glass, and it leaves me with a mixed impression that starts out rough but ends up mostly good.

smooth, clean ale with faint citrus and honey flavor notes and a dry finish. There taste a measure of British specialty malt wether there is any or not it tastes that way. This is my bottled beer of choice with best balance of malt hops and fruity esters. Total consistencey with any aspect ot this brew.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2009 grabbed a 12 oz bottle, great smooth taste, white head that stays for the duration, smooth and balanced with a hoppy taste, thinner in body than other pale aleís all, very good.
