12 oz. bottle picked up at Applejack in the Denver suburbs. drank this right after an Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale. this does not compare, lacking in hop aroma & flavor to the Dale’s APA. by itself, this is a decent brew, but in comparison, its just not as good as other APA’s. this Stone brew may be riding the coattails of some of the breweries outstanding beers to get an average rating of 3.75.

12 oz bottle, via IrishBoy. Pours a clear orangish copper colored body under a generous foamy bone white head with good retention. Aroma is a balance between sweet caramel and toasted malts and a light citric hoppiness. Flavor is your basic APA, fairly light on the hoppiness up front, but a nice bitterness on the finish. Malt is well represented mid swallow. Well balanced overall. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with active but soft carbonation. A pretty nice beer, but I can never get too excited about an APA.

Thanks to Beerdrenched for this one. Pours medium / dark amber with a light tan rocky head. The aroma has lightly musty caramel malt, some butter and some hops, but they are not in the forefront. Medium body with a decent amount of semi-sharp carbonation. The tate starts with musty malt and some woody hops. There is some light fruitiness detectable as well. The finish has some piney / woody hops, just a bit of cardboard and some bitterness along with a fari amount of resin. While this was a alright beer it was not nearly what I had hoped for.

Amber in color with a thin head this was a nice easy to drink Stone brew. No huge hoppy flavors which was good. Liked the finish nice and crisp this was a great finishing brew.

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.

Funknmilla (727) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2007
UPDATED: APR 23, 2007 12 oz bottle...amber color with a decent beige head...smells fresh and mildly malted...clean on the palate, with a nice malt front and subtle bitter finish....its good, a little on the pricey side for a pale ale but stone is worth it!
