LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Nice deep amber color, big frothy cream-colored head, yeasty malt aroma. A bit of pine? Tast is hoppy with a big helping of malt. Heavy mouth feel. Tasty. Very different from my usual pale ale (Sierra Nevada). Stone is darker and heavier. A very good ale. Update: Just drank this after having a Stone IPA, and was less impressed. Perhaps the IPA overpowered the APA, so I won’t change the score now. Will have it again in the future to see if it warrants a change.

Light amber with nice head and smells of biscuits and orange. Taste is citrus hops with some malty hits following it up. Pretty good pale ale.

Headbanger (3663) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2016
12oz bottle 1/12/16 (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a nice head. Aroma of hops and malt along with the taste. This light bodied brew is well balanced and is a great Pale Ale.

tfontana (375) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City, Seabrook, NH. Aroma is weak and fairly nondeScript--light fruit/mild bread? Appearance is clear orange/amber with nice sparkle, finger-width off-white head with good persistence and fair lacing. Taste is light malty sweetness with late mild bitter. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thick, frothy texture/carbonation and mild bitter finish. Overall, gorgeous appearance but the rest is pretty pedestrian/forgettable.

Amber with an average white beige head. Sweet malt and enough evergreen hops to give it just the right kick.

Rating the non 2.0 one. The 1.0 version was orange pour and white fluffy head. Hops of pine and lemongrass. Flavor light malts and bitter pine hops. Finishes almost session like and very quench able.
