Appearance: orange with a puffy pithy head. Laces up with nice chunks of puff hovering atop her glittering depths.
Nose: orangey, citrusy, grassy, and mangoey. Grass lurks in the back while honey mingles with the orange. Green underneath.
Palate: smooth with oranges and an underlying sweetness of orange honey. Medium body. A dry finish with grass and hop resins. A bit sticky with the mouthfeel she lingers long in the middle with a brief start and short finish. Orange rind adds to the dry bitter finish. Mango freshly sliced and juicy finds her way to the middle where she has good company in freshly sliced oranges. Simple and refreshing with just a dab of toast upon which her other flavors preside.
Final Thoughts: one of Tyranena’s better offerings but not the greatest by far. A so-so pale ale she was assertive in her flavor profile which was unfortunately rather one-dimensional. Okay, but there are other pale ales out there I would rather quaff given the choice.

12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s in Madison, WI. Pale orange pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of light floral and grassy hops mixed with sweet caramel malts. Lightly bitter hopped flavor of grass and pine needles. Underwhelming yet drinkable and pleasant. I’ve come to expect many of the great APAs to be darn close to IPAs but there’s certainly nothing wrong with this being less than that. Overall this is a good American Pale Ale.

The Stone Tepee has an orange/yellow appearance. The aroma is quite hoppy, and the hops are somewhat floral. The taste is a good mixture of sweet and sour. It’s kinda citrusy as well. The palate is great; substantial and full, but not harsh. Once again, another excellent beer from Tyrannena!

On draft from brewery, pours clear golden with little or no whtie head to it, it does lace nice through out the glass, has slight aroma of hops but you really have to try, flavor is fairly bland but is still decent.

Pours pale gold and clear with very little snow white head. Apprears to have low carbonation. Nose if of citrus and some earthy hops. Light caramel aroma and no esters. no evidence of dry hops. Taste backs up the nose. Bitterness cleans off the palate in the end and does not linger. This is a wonderful example of an APA. Way underrated!

TheOldKid (46) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber gold with a minimal fizzy head that doesn’t last long. Aroma seemed pine and malt, hardly any hop notes. Taste was medium to light bitter. Palate had a light body with light to medium slick texture. Light and fizzy. Finish was mildly bitter. Over all not great. Pretty weak even for an American Pale Ale. Like all beers, its at least worth trying once.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 4, 2010
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was musty and mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of wood and mild hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with an off-white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma is pretty sweet with a biscuit and grainy nose with underlying grassy hops. Flavor is more nicely balanced with a bit of floral and grassy hops combining nicely with the biscuits and sweet grains on the tongue.

Not a bad beer, but certainly not a pillar of awesomeness either. Its a an easy drining American pale lae that does offers some nice hop flavor and finishes refreshingly bitter and crisp. I nice one on a hot day. I don’t think this beer is trying to be anything other than an honest American pale ale and in that regard it is a success. If you want an easy drinking pale ale that you can put down down without thinking about it then this beer makes sense.

EithCubes (4699) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Fruity, very juice hop aroma with some pine. Some dusty almost honeyish notes, peach and apricot. Brilliant golden pour is clear with a large rocky white head. Light but lasting bitterness, honeyish with crackery, bready notes. Very full body and a little bland.
