Bottle. Poured copper orange with a big bubbly foamy head. Little lacing. Grassy hop aroma with a defined yeasty malt body. A bit sweet, malts evident with a mild hop finish, fairly plain tasting. A little watery with a nice lingering aftertaste.

Everyone seems to say the same thing about this beer: beautiful, copper color, quite nicely malty and a pleasant, but restrained amount of hops. I cannot disagree. I liked it quite a bit, but I probably wont opt for this one too often given the other (and I think superior) APAs out there.

This beer pours copper with a small head. The aroma is hoppy, but not overpowering. The flavor is alright. It is hoppy and some maltiness. There is something funny about the hop flavor I dont like in this one. It tastes almost metallic. I think it tastes too much like resin....astringent-like. It has a medium body and medium carbonation. Im not sure I would want a six pack of this stuff.

Appearance: Pours a translucent amber with a 1/2 inch of thick white foam topping of head. Aroma: Light whiffs of malt sweetness Taste: Starts off with heavy bitter hops. Then I get a nice English-like maltiness followed by some more bitterness. Mouthfeel: Very carbonated and medium bodied. Overall: A way better session beer than Levitation, an agressively hopped pale for fure. I like a bit more crispness and citrus in my California Pale Ales.

12 oz. bottle. this PA was a bit heavy on the malt for me. nothing stands out as above average. the first Stone beer i do not see buying again, too many better PAs out there without the stone price tag.

Bottle - pours brownish amber with a 1 finger white head. Nose is of malt and hops. Taste is decent, nothing to write home about. Finishes with a little carbonation and aftertaste lingers of hops. Not bad but certainly not my favorite APA.

Pours a nice copper color with a medium white head that fades fast. Good carbonation, lots of lacing. Aroma is caramel, malts, and a touch of hops. Taste is surprisingly low-key. Theres some hops, a little bit of sweetness and floral taste. Iits certainly not very bitter, theres also a bit of caramel in there but overall its pretty boring. Dont get me wrong its a well made beer and possibly a good starter beer for someone thats not used to hops but probably my least favorite beer from Stone.
