UPDATED: FEB 21, 2020 Keg at The Neighborhood, San Diego, CA on 25/03/2008. A very nice pale, with bitter and apricot hoppy notes.

PhillyCraft (12291) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2019 Backlog, Bottles over the years, and probably on draft. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium fast receding top. Notes are pine, ash, grapefruit resin, sweeter malt, and grape sugar. A bit sweet and malty for me especially compared to other beers from Stone and the lower percent. Light to medium bodied.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2019 This has been on my wish list for a couple years now, but did not get around to it because a little pricey and tried other things. Grabbed a single to sample first, but worth $2 a beer IMO.....barely though. Could be at the top of my APA list, right up there with Stoudts. I find the two very similar all-around. A murky medium orangish color. Aroma of pine and citrus, but not as strong as their IPA. Flavor is well balanced....leaning slightly towards the hops vs. malt. What I really like about these is the mouthfeel, very smooth, crisp, refreshing, however you want to describe it. Something that I will return to for sure!

zaclogan (31) - - FEB 3, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2019 Poured from bottle a golden copper with a white head. Aroma: citrus, grapefruit, biscuity malt, candy orange notes. Taste: citrus, grapefruit, peach, carmael, mild candy orange and mild biscuity malt flavours. Thin to medium bodied. Mild sweetness followed by mild bitterness finish. Moderate carbonation. Easy to drink and a fantastic Pale Ale.

Bitterbill (3030) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 26, 2017
From Jun 2007 Purchased as part of a mixed 6pack from Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Collins. This pours from 12oz bottle a hazy orange amber with a medium sized head of foam that dissipated quickly leaving a few islands and it has some nice lacing. The smell is on the sweet side. I get caramel malt with just a touch of hops and some fruit. The taste on first sip has some good malty sweetness up front with a solid backbone of hop bitterness that comes in about midway through and dominates the finish but it's not overly aggressive and I'm liking it. A few more sips in and I'm beginning to realize that this APA is all about balance and I start to notice a fruitiness in the flavour that I mentioned in the nose. Maybe cherry? Dang, this is certainly a drinkable example of the style and now I wish I had bought at least a 6pack. Oh well, I can cure that on my next trip to the Fort. ;^) Bottom line: This a great APA that I can highly recommend. See some grab some.

Pretty surprised by this beer the first time I tried in back in 2011 at a Flying Saucer stone tasting in 2011. Considering the modus operandi of stone, the subtlety of this beer, its balance between caramelly sweetness and citrus hops, it quite nice.

Borup (22592) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016

mice (2604) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Kuparinen, punertavanruskea kirkkaahko olut, joka ei vaahtoa juuri lainkaan. Tuoksussa humalaa, havuisuutta, sitruksisuutta sekä jokin - ei niin miellyttävä - sivutuoksu, josta en saa päähäni mitä se on. Maku mielenkiintoinen yhdistelmä karamellista makeutta ja greippistä katkeroa. Katkeran greippinen jälkimaku. Keskiasteinen suutuntuma ja sopivasti hiilihappoja.
