bhensonb (13733) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2007
Nice medium aroma of hop and malt. More than many APAs. Light copper color with a transient white head. The remains laced a bit. Starts with malt, somewhat balanced by hop. A bit musty, woody. The finish is a bit malty for my taste. Good drink though.

Tmoney99 (13161) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Tap. Deep amber color with medium white head. Great aroma of complex hops and sweet. Flavor was full and the finish was long and pleasent. I will be seeking out more of Stone brews.

FatPhil (13060) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2013
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Sweet caramelly aroma. Bright orange, floaty bits, Watery palate. Toffe and some walnut papers at first.. But after the first sip it’s just sweet water with some hint of hops. Another uninteresting APA.

mcberko (12996) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours brownish amber with a tiny head. Aroma of balanced caramel malt and hops. Flavour is a nice balance of the same, with a more pronounced hop flavour and citrus. Pretty standard but nice.

If, as the bottle say, this is their flagship beer, how come I can get every other of their non-seasonal except this one?! Regardless, hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Big hoppy aroma (grapefruit/flowery), supported by mild sweetness. Flavor is medium flowery hoppy, with hints of peach and grapefruit. Chewy body. No attempt to overwhelm you, which is somewhat unexpected in a Stone brew. Instead, what they've given is a delicious full-bodied beer.
