dark and inviting rich amber color citrusy aroma taste like orange or orange peel or something just hoppy enough to be a stone brew.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Pours brown/amber with a thick off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Strong aroma of grapefruit, hay, some spice. Nice balance of sweetness with hops. It starts off thin in the mouth, but rounds out nicely and finishes with a subtle lingering bitterness after a quick shot of hops. Overall a tasty ale, which is no surprise from Stone.

Light copper with big dialup off-white head. Nose of caramel, fresh bread, juicy citrus and pine. Good roasty malts are balanced well with slightly biting resinous hop presence. One of the best ambers around. Especially nice at 4.4%!

From bottle. Nose is full of sweet floral hops. Pours deep amber with a pale and foamy white head. A mixture of sweetness and some bitterness, and a full mouthfeel. Not a bad offering. All the signs of a good ale, if just a little boring.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear reddish-brown with a short off-white head. Very hoppy aroma - citrus and spruce. Roasty malt flavor upfront, but quickly overpowered with lots of bittering and finishing hops. Dry, bitter finish. Medium-light bodied and pretty smooth with moderately low carbonation. Lots of flavor for a relatively low ABV beer. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Deep copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is hops, pine, hint of citrus and hint of caramel/malt. Taste is hoppy, hint of citrus and caramel with a nice ending bitterness. A favorite one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Pours a mahogany/red color with a tawny head. Medium co2 with a sticky lace. Aroma is of malt and caramel with a grassy hop presence. Tastes lightly sweet at the start and middle with a dominant hop finish that is downright numbing. Palate is medium bodied with light effervescence. IMHO: an OD on the hops.

I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617, we picked it up as part of a pic six. Umm, well, all I can say about it is that as a beer from Stone, I am not all too impressed. I think they do a great job with IPAs, but as an Amber Ale, I think they tried really hard to be something they werent. It looked great, nice amber red color with a white head. Aroma was a bit towards the IPA side, pretty hoppy. I didnt feel like this had a lot going for it outside of wanting to be an IPA. As a Stone beer, it was ok, but as a beer I would want to buy regularly, not so much.
