Aroma is hops, dark wheat bread, floral notes, and some sweetness. I could smell this all day. Appearance is a bit of a hazy brown/copper color. Good thick off-white head when poured and then dissipates. Flavor consists of wheat bread, some sweetness, rich maltiness with a splash of hops which adds bitterness. Very nice. Overall, I really like this beer. It’s got flavor, looks great, and always leaves me satisfied. Very good beer.

Clean, crisp, clear. A good session beer worth buying over and over again. Stone knows how to make good beers. This one is not great...just good again and again!

Ehhh, whatever. It’s good? Yeah. I’d buy it again? Yeah. It’s more balanced and not a hop slam like most American Pale Ales? Yeah. But seeing that it’s rated at 96 right now makes me think people on here beat off to Stone too much. I mean, it’s no Levitation Ale...

Poured a nice golden amber from a bottle. Fluffy white 2 finger head that remained somewhat of present throughout the drink. Best pale ale i’ve had in a while. Loved the malty balance. The hops were definitely present but didn’t overpower. Great soft citrus and floral taste on the back end. Great beer! Am definitely going to buy again.

I only rate this one low for me because I’m not a huge pale ale fan. Pours a deep Amber red with a light head. Definitely smell the malts before you dive in to this brew. Taste wise is very roasty very toasty. Great caramel flavor with a slight bitterness to cleanse the palate. And a superb smooth finish. Great pale.

12 oz. bottle poured amber with a moderate head.. Aroma was decent but nothing to write home about. It goes down smooth but the flavor is lacking.
