This should be better! For as good as Stone is at everything else - here is where it lacks a bit, and I am saddened by it! One nice thing is that it is thick for a pale which is interesting - but the flavor is not as kicking as it should be!

This beer had a funky smell to it. I could not detect a lot of hoppy aroma. The appearance was great-nice golden color aith creamy white head. The flavor was that of a typical pale ale, good hops and carbonation. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Perhaps I should have had the Stone IPA after this one but I decided to have this one with the pizza. Pours a very very faintly hazy medium bourbon under a medium size medium short lasting light yellow head. Faint hop aroma and not much else - a touch disappointing for a Stone beer. Flavours of medium aromatic woody hops followed by mildly sweet caramel malt. Aftertaste was medium length medium intensity and crisp. BTW - went extremely well with anchovy pizza.

Bottle. This is a very, very malty beer. So many malts that the best one word to describe this is earthy. There is a nice bitter there that borders on too much. I love Stone, but this one just didnít do it for me. Too musty.

Bottle. Poured copper orange with a big bubbly foamy head. Little lacing. Grassy hop aroma with a defined yeasty malt body. A bit sweet, malts evident with a mild hop finish, fairly plain tasting. A little watery with a nice lingering aftertaste.

Everyone seems to say the same thing about this beer: beautiful, copper color, quite nicely malty and a pleasant, but restrained amount of hops. I cannot disagree. I liked it quite a bit, but I probably wonít opt for this one too often given the other (and I think superior) APAs out there.

Poured a slightly cloudy/hazy orange/amber color, with a nice tall head. The head was nice and tall. There was a mild hops aroma and also a mild flavor. This was a nice beer. My opinion of this beer was probably not accurate after having several stronger, better tasting beers that this one couldnít stand up to. This one paled in comparison :)

This beer pours copper with a small head. The aroma is hoppy, but not overpowering. The flavor is alright. It is hoppy and some maltiness. There is something funny about the hop flavor I donít like in this one. It tastes almost metallic. I think it tastes too much like resin....astringent-like. It has a medium body and medium carbonation. Iím not sure I would want a six pack of this stuff.

Dark, dark amber with a 1 inch head that settles to a thin film. Aroma is weak. Flavor is pretty smooth, clean, a little creamy, slightly hoppy. Character is lively. The brew is medium full and refreshing without being too heavy. The finish is malty and biter and has a lot of bite.
