Balanced beer. Liked better than the ipa. Stone seems to be a hop happy brewery and this one is not as strong.

Shot (150) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper with a frothy white head. There are aromas of caramel, cut grass, bready tones and floral hops. It really smells fantastic. Flavors start off slightly malty but then lean heavily on nuttiness, bready tones and some rather herbally floral hops. Clean, hoppy, dry finish. Clean, but slightly oily mouthfeel. The hops kind of coat the tongue, which isn’t a bad thing. Overall, this is a very nice pale ale, but I find myself wanting just a bit more malt character. But don’t get me wrong. This one is a keeper.

Ambrée. Beau collet blanc/orangé. Voilée. Fraiche. Bien houblonné. Belle amertume persistante. Peu sucré/malté. Résineuse. Sèche et rafraichissante. J'aime beaucoup.

adster (400) - HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2014
Borostyán színben tündököl, és az egyik legpuhább és legkrémesebb habot produkálja, amellyel apátsági és trappista söröket leszámítva valaha találkoztam. Az pedig külön esztétikai élmény, amint a mennyiség fogyatkozása során a továbbra is megmaradó habkorona szabályos gyűrűket képez a pohár falán. Illata szépen fejlődik, egyre inkább megnyílik, a végére már mennyei tűlevelűek aromáját ontja, amihez mézes-gyantás, halvány bodzás-ánizsos jegyek is csatlakoznak, mindamellett a jól ismert komlós hangulatot hordozza. Elegáns a test, melyben a zamatok kiteljesednek, semmiképpen nem egy izomkolosszus. Szárazabb és enyhébb, mint amire az illatok alapján számolhatunk, de ez a főzet nem is a feltűnősködésről híres. Helyette egy természetességet sugárzó, harmonikus ízvilágban részesülünk, a feszes malátás pályán minden tekintetet magára vonz a komló erőteljes játéka. A nyelvgyök és a lágy szájpadlás így kitüntetett célpontok, az orvosságos keserűség legalábbis gondoskodik róla, hogy az előadás hatása kellőképpen megérintse ezeket a szegleteket.

The body has a medium reddish/orange amber color with a slight haze and a nice one inch cap of just off white foam. The head slowly fades to a light ring and leaves a few lace rings at the top of the glass. In the nose I pick up a little bready and caramel sweetness with a firm dose of floral like citrus and piney hops. On the tongue there is solid base of rich caramel and bready sweetness with mild hop bitterness running thought it. It finishes much more balanced with a burst of citrus and pine like flavor fading into the background. This pale is moderately carbonated, smooth and easy drinking.

chinchill (1900) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2014
12 oz bottle consumed on BB date. Pours clear, dark amber, with a moderate amount of carbonation bubbles rising to a durable,bone-colored head. Aroma: some malt, more floral/herbal hops. Flavor: follows smell. More medium malt, and perhaps more hops, than the average APA.
