Deep amber in color, Stone Pale Ale is robust and full flavored. A delicate hop aroma is complemented by a rich maltiness.

Maybe I should try again. I didn’t get this beer at all. Just kind of run of the mill good quality pale ale; not enough hops for me, and too much malt.

Full red amber; foresty nose w/ some candyish notes. Earthy, chewy character with notes of cocoa and wisps of lemony hops overlaying a solid malt footing.

2004 bottle. Orange-amber-yellow with some very light reds. Decent off-white head, quite foamy, lots of lacing. Clear. Smells very dry of hops, paper, biscuits, white bread. Flavor is hugely dry, not overly bitter, but just so dry you wonder where the malt is. Definitely strong for the style, though I really like that. Flavor is certainly crisp and clean, I just can’t seem to get used to the huge dryness of the malt and hops.

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.

Pours a hazy amber orange color with white head. Light malty aroma with bitter hops. Light malts with piney bitter hop finish. Good pale ale.

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.
