12oz bottle thanks to kmweaver for this extra. pours amber with creamy white head. nose is doughy malt and some citrus and peppery hop notes. flavor is malty at times almost harsh, lacks much of a hop presence otherthan a crisp finish. just decent stuff.

12 oz bottle, pours deep amber with beige foamy head, which mostly dissipated and left mild lacing. Aroma of malt and hops, similar to Arrogant Bastard, but milder. Taste of bitter hops, mouthfeel a bit watery, but smooth. Is a decent pale ale, but not as great as I would have expected, since Iím a fan of Arrogant Bastard/Double Bastard. Just OK.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
A nice looking copper red beer with a small head. The aroma is a mild hoppiness, with floral and spicy notes. The flavor is mostly malt with a bit of hop bitterness. A bit thin in the mouthfeel. Not offensive in any way, but not intense in any way. Iím a much bigger fan of the IPA, ruination, or arrogant/double bastard.

Bottled at some Taco-place in SF Slightly hazy with a white head. Pretty malty aroma with light hoppiness. Sweet in flavour with a medium bitterness.

Bottle. actually a pretty fine pale ale. Not a big fan of the floral hops but the spices and carmal made it good.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 12 oz bottle I found this offering from Stone to be pretty average in comparison to their other ales. Itís certainly better that most pale ales, but that said, it is a far cry from Ruination, Arrogant and Double Bastard. Or smoked porter. Just sayin.

pours a clear copper with a small off-white head, and good lacing. smell is floral, caramel, some spice, and a little pine. taste is of oats, malt, grain, some caramel, a little bit of cheerios, earth, and roasted nuts, ends a little dry and a little bitter.
