Something else stands out every time I drink this beer. One day, it’s the mild hoppy flavor. Another day it’s the light-malt roastiness. Sometimes, both. Either way, delicious, very balanced beer. Pours red with a very light head.

superspak (2999) - Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2015
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.

excellent pale...nice malty and hoppy blend that leaves you with a nice hoppy bitter bite at the end. smells of malt and hopps and is soft on the pallette. pours reddish orange in color with a thin cream head. had a bottle pour at home.

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.

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!

maekchu (2453) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Fruity nose, light grassy hop, caramel (, and some fumes!?). Clear orange/amber color, thin white head, and some lace. Thin malty initial, very gentle hopping -- which intensifies in mid palate, hints of orange peel. Medium body. Maybe this isnít in the best condition? Or is it supposed to taste this ... aged?

Butters (3896) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2014
How this rating eluded me for so many years I will never know. Clear amber dark copper pour with thin soapy near white head. Smells old metallic and malty, slightly sweet. Hoppiness comes on the flavor with a floral bitter earthiness. Maybe it will be better fresh, but this is pretty uninspiring.

ARH (660) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. Mild caramel and citrus aromas come through with some grass character. The beer is a copper, oily color with an off-white, soapy head retaining a medium ring and leaving a light, speckled lace. The taste is a medium-high bitter and a medium sweet. Itís waxy with a fuzzy carbonation. The medium body has flavors of caramel and citrus with a resin bitter finish. A chalky and waxy aftertaste lingers and ends with a clean, dry pine touch.
