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 won’t opt for this one too often given the other (and I think superior) APAs out there.

Appearance: Pours a translucent amber with a 1/2 inch of thick white foam topping of head. Aroma: Light whiffs of malt sweetness Taste: Starts off with heavy bitter hops. Then I get a nice English-like maltiness followed by some more bitterness. Mouthfeel: Very carbonated and medium bodied. Overall: A way better session beer than Levitation, an agressively hopped pale for fure. I like a bit more crispness and citrus in my California Pale Ales.

12 oz. bottle. this PA was a bit heavy on the malt for me. nothing stands out as above average. the first Stone beer i do not see buying again, too many better PA’s out there without the stone price tag.

Bottle - pours brownish amber with a 1 finger white head. Nose is of malt and hops. Taste is decent, nothing to write home about. Finishes with a little carbonation and aftertaste lingers of hops. Not bad but certainly not my favorite APA.

Pours a nice copper color with a medium white head that fades fast. Good carbonation, lots of lacing. Aroma is caramel, malts, and a touch of hops. Taste is surprisingly low-key. There’s some hops, a little bit of sweetness and floral taste. Iit’s certainly not very bitter, there’s also a bit of caramel in there but overall it’s pretty boring. Don’t get me wrong it’s a well made beer and possibly a good starter beer for someone that’s not used to hops but probably my least favorite beer from Stone.

IndianaRed (2604) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle pours a clear deep amber with a frothy sandy colored head. Loght malty aro.a a bit of cardboardand wet grocery bags. Surprisinggly little of the west coast hops I expected. Woody light bitter malt flavor. Light pallettte that finishes quick. A bit dissapointing.

I expected a little more from a pale from stone. it was descent light citrus hops with some malt to balance things out in the aroma and flavor. maybe I had a bottle that was about three months old. I will have to revisit.
