imdownthepub (14225) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2011
Bottled, 355ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Brownish amber with off white head. Finally got to try the original and although there is a soft, tropical fruity hoppiness the thing that really strikes is the malty sweetness, way above what I was expecting. Almost candy like, the hops try to cut through but they are a little masked. A little disappointed really.

Tmoney99 (14199) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Tap. Deep amber color with medium white head. Great aroma of complex hops and sweet. Flavor was full and the finish was long and pleasent. I will be seeking out more of Stone brews.

argo0 (14022) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2003
If, as the bottle say, this is their flagship beer, how come I can get every other of their non-seasonal except this one?! Regardless, hazy copper body topped by small beige head. Big hoppy aroma (grapefruit/flowery), supported by mild sweetness. Flavor is medium flowery hoppy, with hints of peach and grapefruit. Chewy body. No attempt to overwhelm you, which is somewhat unexpected in a Stone brew. Instead, what they've given is a delicious full-bodied beer.

Scopey (14014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle at BrewDog Camden. It pours clear deep amber, with a thick beige head. The nose is resin, straw, pine, floral, grass and brown bread. The taste is grass, pine, hay, straw, more grass, citrus pith and grapefruit, with a long bitter-dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A good pale ale, but perhaps a bit too dry.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 14, 2009
(10/31/08) Draught at Lucky Devils in Hollywood. Slightly hazy amber color with a medium stable off-white head. Nice floral hoppy aroma with some citrus and a bit of malt. Sweetish malty flavor at first with some caramel and bready notes and later turns to pleasant moderate hoppy bitterness. Rounded-bodied.

On tap at flying saucer. Has a clear amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is verry hoppy and sweet with caramel. Good lacing on the glass. The taste is very hoppy with a dry finish. Easy to drink for a good session beer. A good pale ale from stone.
