Ehhh, whatever. Itís good? Yeah. Iíd buy it again? Yeah. Itís more balanced and not a hop slam like most American Pale Ales? Yeah. But seeing that itís rated at 96 right now makes me think people on here beat off to Stone too much. I mean, itís 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 iíve had in a while. Loved the malty balance. The hops were definitely present but didnít overpower. Great soft citrus and floral taste on the back end. Great beer! Am definitely going to buy again.

A very mellow amber color and a malty, caramel aroma combine to make a smooth Pale Ale. Stoneís is a simple beer with simple ingredients, no preservatives, and a high ABV. You canít go wrong with this one.

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.

Almost an Amber but great BREW never the less, Perfect hoppiness for me but maybe too big for others, nice malt balance and crisp finish. Another classic brew from Stone

Pale????????Lokks more amber, darker than the IPA and bigger in malteeness. Very robust a nice change from the mild pales out there but then is it a pale? Iíll rate well cuz I like this particular beer very much and recommend it
