Thanks to Sarah for the bottle. The body is a slightly hazy dark orange and almost copper color. The head is light khaki and a hint of yellow. The aroma has some oranges and caramel. There is also a hint of flowers A very tame smelling beer. The taste is toasted walnuts with some caramel and iced tea. There is a little bit of bread crust. The body is smooth with a light amount of carbonation. A good expample of the style, but more subtle than I expected. barleyPops (1183) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2006
12 oz. bottle picked up at Applejack in the Denver suburbs. drank this right after an Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale. this does not compare, lacking in hop aroma & flavor to the Dale’s APA. by itself, this is a decent brew, but in comparison, its just not as good as other APA’s. this Stone brew may be riding the coattails of some of the breweries outstanding beers to get an average rating of 3.75. marvinpontiac (117) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JUN 18, 2006
A quality pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma - probably cascades - but still not as enjoyable as the alesmith pale ale, which is bigger and better in every way. BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Hazy amber pour...smallish white head. Bigger than expected hoppy nose...big Cascade. Chewy...didn’t expect that. Nice malt balance with this one...yet hoppier than any pale ale this side of India. I’d avoided this one in lieu of Stone’s other offerings...shame on me...this one is very good. sbaz040 (39) - phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2006
A tasteless version of Stone IPA............

How do these guys do it ? They cornered the market on the worlds best brewery. Genius, pure genius. This brew pours amber honey w/ a shallow, creamy froth. Aroma is malty. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are bright and mellow with a malty fruit character. The finish has a perfect bittering yet wet. Overall: I like it alot. Nice finish, refined, well ballanced. It’s perfect. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2006
