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? I’ll rate well cuz I like this particular beer very much and recommend it

Poured into a pint glass reveals a deep copper color with abundant head that disapates quickly. Smell is citrus with hints of lemon grass. Tates is a bread malt that has a light citrus undertone and light hop finish. Overall a nice drinkable Pale that is not over hopped.

Light copper color with a floral hops aroma. Light to medium body. Really well balance between the malts and the hops. An everyday beer. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a bad pale ale. Maybe too much caramel flavor in it? Hops decent. I wouldn’t turn one down if it was offered.

Nice dark amber color. Caramel overtones balance well with hops. tan head doesnt' have long life. Definitely a recommended daily drink.

Head: good for the style, nice lacing. Not too big. Aroma: citrusy Cascade hops, fresh malt. Also appropriate for style. Color: a bit too much protein clouds the brew for this style, but a nice color. Flavor: not to hoppy for a pale ale, which is nice for a Malthead like me. Too many West Coast pale ales are WAY overhopped in my opinion. This is not one of them. Very nice balance between hops and malt, particularly when the beer heats up somewhat. Nice dry finish. A great session beer on a hot day without air conditioning. Throw out your adjunct-laden Bud/Miller/Michelob swill and switch to this for the game.

Poured a hazy orange-reddish color w/ a two finger head (very tight air bubbles). Leaves a very nice lacing on the glass. The hop flavor is present throughout the tasting in the mouth from start to finish.

Nice golden color. Another great brew from Stone Brewing. A nice hoppy bitterness and hop aroma. Some malt here, but in the background. As most hoppy beers from Stone - this too is about the american hops. An easy drinker.

Love this beer. A great pale ale in my opinion. The hops have a great profile to match the malty background. The mouthfeel is just right, not too thick and not watery. The aroma is nice, but not as well done as the taste. Nice hop-forward brew with complimentary malt base with slight notes of bread, toast, and sweetness - just enough of each to keep the hops in balance.

Somewhat muted aroma in a bottle poor into a pint glass. Great pale amber appearance. Good hop mapper balance. An easy drinking beer with a light to medium mouth. Overall, a very solid brew.
