2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Body is red amber. Aroma is some hops - standard aggressive ’stoneage.’ Taste is slight bitterness, watered down in comparison to other stones Ive had, but this makes sense when comparing the alc of this to arrogant bastard, double bastard, and ruination.

Heard they were discontinuing this..so sad...great pale ale goto wherever you are, airport craft beer bar a perfect litmus test for pale ales. Great hoppy nose but not IPA big just right. Great clear clean malt with a perfect hop flavoring! Awesome good by my friend.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/16/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, pine, floral, grass, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of citrus/pine hops and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

just discovering pale ales vs ipas. IPAs hit you over the head with hops (which I love), but pale ales let you enjoy the other elements as well. Stone Pale ale gives you a great malt nose and a hop finish. My favorite Pale Ale so far.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a rich amber with a slight white head leaving some nice lacing. Smell is rich malty goodness with hints of caramel and subtle citrus notes. Carbonation is mild and it's fairly light bodied. Taste is very malt forward. Rich toffee notes with a slight citrus backing make for a delightful pale!
