Strong hops flavor with a definite grapefruit flavor. Bitterness is pleasantly stronger than average, but not overboard. Quite a bit of uniqueness. Reasonably priced in San Diego ($7.29 for 6 bottles). A definite recommend.

For me, this is the best session beer in the world. How can you do any better? Delectable hoppng with a solid, well balanced malt backbone. I went on a trip to San Diego last year and enjoyed many great beers but it was always nice to come back to Stone. Man, I’d like to get this in my draft fridge!

Very nice brew for the hops lover. Very drinkable and is an all time favorite of mine. Another excellent brew from Stone.

Nice Floral aroma. Reddish Orange body. Great Hoppy American Pale. This is a good intro beer to the Stone Brewery. At 5.4 ABV it packs a punch without tasting like liquor.

It smells just like an average ale would. Medium golden brown in color medium head. it is a little sweet with a little bitterness. It has a little citrus after taste but nothing overpowering. overall its a pretty good beer. If you like an ale thas easy to drink with a little bite and a little flavor this is perfect.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2004 Clear amber color - small head. Not as hoppy as I had expected- partially covered by light caramel malts. Sweet mouthfeel and no aftertaste- easy to drink.

vicepeddler (24) - Broomfield, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours a beautiful crimson with a light, slightly tan head. Slightly sweet aroma and a distinct yet light citrus hop note. Quite crisp yet very mellow on the palate with a very even balance between hop and malt. Finishes exceptionally cleanly with a slight lingering hop bite. A marvelously well balanced pale. Very sessionable.

A good all-around American pale. Not too overwhelming like some of Stone’s stuff. Nice balance of spicy hops. Great in the bottle or on tap.
