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

This is a tones down version of the IPA. Different than most other pales I have tried. I like to great aroma and flavor of this beer. It has a fuller body than most pales (which I like). Malty sweet undertones. All around great beer.

garnet burgandy color,excellent aroma smells of cotton candy. Malty thick and rich drank slightly below cellar temperature. Finish is unique nutty & malty.Very complex ale I would not have believed it was less than 8% ABV, maybe its Double Bastards Little brother--Mini Bastard. This beer is as balanced as any I have had. I wish a few cases could be sent this way, I would stock up. Reminds of mixing a Barley Wine with an traditional Pale Ale, this is in no way a traditional Pale Ale, though it absolutely is a top 50 beer. Highly Recommended, special thanks go out to Mr.ArrogantBastard for sending this superb well crafted beer.

Very clear straw color bordering on copper. moerate flowers on nose white rocky head. full body Initail fruity malt flavor turning a perfect bitter. long finish great brew.

Soft floral aroma. Copper in color with a thin frothy white head. Flavor is Floral hops, faint fruits and a simple, but sweet sharpness to it. Not long and drawn out hoppiness, like the IPA. The malts are good as well. I expected it to be just a little brother of the IPA, but this brew has characteristics of its own. Damn good!

Never seen this on the east coast before. Hope its here to stay. Unexpected flavors, caramel but not sweet, with a touch of bitterness, like an Arrogant Bastard Lite. Has significant body, almost cask ale like and overall very well balanced. Just a fantastic and original interpretation of pale ale.

I had this beer at Isacc Newtons in Newtown PA. The appearance is a dark amber. The aroma is bitter, very pleasent. Not too overwhelming. For a pale ale, it’s very hoppy. Smooth, good beer. Best Pale Ale so far.

my favorite beer from the stone brew and probably my favorite pale ale that you can get. not overly malty or hopped just right for a perfect ale that could be drank with any food at any time of year. little darker color with a nice foam head that just calls to you as you pour it into your favorite glass. if i had a little bit more money i would probably have a big stock pile of this beer at all times just waiting to be drank.

Bottle - Amber pour, white head. One of my favorite styles. Good citrus, hop aroma. Citrusy, fruity, hoppy, malty, good to the last drop-e. I can never get this in my state, but via friends and neighbors or friends of neighbors (Texas) maybe I can get some more of Stone Brewing’s sweet nectars.
