3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: hazy orange in color, with a large, creamy head.
Aroma: citrusy, fruity: peach, apricot, pineapple, zesty, hoppy, and very uplifting, dazzling, enticing.
On the palate, lush, sweet, malty. Medium body. Great balance. Overall, full of consistently delivering flavor. Tasty, tasty, tasty! I was happy with this beer all the way down, every inch and ounce.
Quite unique in flavor, this one, and resoundingly delightful. I would happily enjoy these day after day, if they would just find a way across the border!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear orange-coppy body, short-lived white head. Lots of grapefruit in the nose, has a good balance of citrus sweetness along with bitterness. The flavor is quite nice, features intense sweet and tart grapefruit citrus flavors along with a dry, crisp finish. The body and the malt backbone are pretty lightweight. Overall the beer isn't very complex but it tastes good so who cares!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange, with lots of sediment and no head. Grapefruit scent. Not a very strong taste, but what is there is citrusy. Average at best.

nice even head
Strong clean pleasant aroma
It's a light colored pale
This seems to be a well made bitter beer that doesn't fit my taste.. I liked everything about this beer except the way it tasted.

A nice APA. Was a little weak on taste and a bit watery would drink again. Not bad

Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but this seems to have a sour aftertaste which is not very becoming.

The smell of grapefruit was overcoming on this one. If you like the hops this one delivers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, sweet floral, hoppy bouquet. Small to average sized head, white. Excellent lace. Slow carbonation. Poured from a dark brown bottle, I expected a deep reddish, amber beer, but got a gold one instead. Hopefully this was not a decision made to appease the dark-beer-ophobes. Hoppier than your average pale ale. Could almost pass for an IPA. Has enough sweetness to balance the bitterness. Well done. Has some oak notes, which helps prevent it from being a run-of-the-mill pale ale. A little cloying in the aftertaste, but a very solid brew overall.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2005 Stone Tepee is one pow-wow of a pale! Great stuff!
Color is a very nice hazy, pale golden gold hue with a thin white head fading out to leave bubbles on the edge and leaves all sorts of inkblot-like spotty lacing. Looks yummy! Smells yummy too, nice citrusy floral character up front, it smells quite fresh and clean and has a slight sweetness lingering in the back. Yummy taste of bright, but dulled, zesty hops, "paled" perfectly in smoothness with a citrusy tang smoothness and the sweet malt layer fits right in there making this one easy drinker. With a good firm, solid medium body and gets slightly airy dry in the finish. A sensational Pale, beautifully bittered, in every aspect. Great job Tyranena on putting this one together! In a word, "Yummy"
