Aroma of tangerine, pineapple, pine. Appears a crystal clear color of brass with faint effervescence and a well-proportioned yellow meringue-like head. Flavor is very bitter hoppy, with more tangerine, pineapple, and resin. Palate is thick, chewy, slick, syrupy. Overall, this beer is quite a bit less than the sum of its parts, mostly suffering from an unpleasant flavor. toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Pours amber with a whie haed. Aroma very subtle with pine and bread, and malt. Surprising ly good davidflores99 (225) - Signal HIll, California, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Poured a light amber, with a white head, not too big. Aroma was citrusy and slightly hoppy and a bit malty. I really liked this brew, it had a nice hoppy and yeasty flavor, nothing too special but very tastey. Overall nice. DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Pours yellow with a medium sized white fizzy head. Smells malty and hoppy together in a difficult way to explain, kind of like carmalized pine needles. Taste is quite interesting, it starts off sweet and soothing tasting of caramel. It then gives way to a complex bitter aftertaste that is quite unique. Nice beer.

Has a very hoppy taste, but is not overly bitter at all. Has some sweet fruity undertones with a mild finish. It tastes sort of like a milder version of their IPA...and I find it easier to drink.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange gold with a tiny white head that quickly became a ring around the rim of my glass. Smells very hoppy, floral, like grapefruit. Tastes very bitter and tart. It lingers and really masks the other flavors that the beer might have. timmy300 (203) - bloomington, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2006
great beer starts off like lemony gummy bears and finishes like pine needles.....the alcohol rounds it out and keeps you from pounding this one.....while it is still quite refreshing.........nice uvajed (187) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Hop heaven, with just enough wheat -- almost (but not quite) too sweet, with a great balance of hoppy bitterness.
They say it isn’t "yeasty", but I taste the yeast. Fortunately, that’s something I like. Brilliant, if you like what Stone usually do. brettpace (176) - New York City, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Very good ale, piney. However, i prefer the levitation double hopped ale to this. Cant wait to hit stone up this weekend!! porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Pours a golden color with a very thin white head. A very citrusy aroma with some hints of oak and grass. A piney and citrusy hop flavor, with a slight warming of alcohol. No malt flavor that i could detect. It was like a different tasting IPA, with a rather thin body!
