Eh, kind of a dissapionting brew from perhaps my favorite brewery...its drinkable and mild but it lacks the kick i love from stone beers chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Pours dark amber orange, darker than most ambers. Aroma of malt and roasted nuts. Flavor begins with roasted malt and finishes with a nice hoppy bang. Overall, a good amber ale. flyingshoes (100) - USA - MAY 31, 2009
12 oz bottle. Better than I was expecting, even as a fan of Stone. Beautiful aroma of grapefuit, citrus, and seemingly raisins. The flavor is very full for a 4.4% It’s subtle, but complex, and very similar to the aroma. Another winner from Stone. rking (100) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Simply the best session type beer that I have ever had. Only if it was available in Missouri... iNBe (100) - USA - SEP 2, 2010
So glad this is now available in my area. This beer is pretty tasty. I plan to buy more.

Sampling at the brewery. Deep amber color. Slight butter, hoppy (grapefruit). al53 (96) - FINLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber colour with medium head.
Aroma is tropical fruits, hops, malt, citrus, grassy and bit sweet.
Taste is citrus, grapefruit, sweet tropical fruits, piney hops and malt.
Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Citrusy and grapefruity finish with hops and hint of rye.
My bottle was almost outdated, so I can’t even imagine, how good this tastes fresh. In this ABV absolutely stunning! bierchik (95) - lakewood, California, USA - AUG 26, 2004
not a strong aroma some citrus hints, very hoppy IMO, it was too bitter for my likings. can’t say much for the appreance, i drank it out of the bottle. Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
12oz bottle - Ruby/amber color and makes a small white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with citrus hoppiness and lightly roasted. Taste starts out with a hoppy spice and finishes with a roasted malt character. Nicely balanced. Thin and smooth palate. properhops (88) - - OCT 12, 2011
