Typical Stone product but less "oomph" to it. Pale golden color with frothy white head. Amazing aroma of hops typical of Stone. Lighter taste that lends it drinkability compared to other Stone brews. Basically, a "lighter" version of their IPA, and thus not as good.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle pours amber with off white 2 finger head. Aroma is mild roast, caramel, and a slightly grassy hop profile. Taste is toffee with a resiny and spruce-y hop profile. Body is medium and oily with average carbonation and a dry bitter finish. Overall, this is a solid beer but not nearly as exciting as other offerings Ive had from Stone. Middle of the road as compared to the other great pale ales I have sampled in the past few weeks. Whats really odd is that Ive really enjoyed this beer in the past but it somehow tastes different (inferior) than it did last year.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thick head. Fairly dull aroma of toasted malt. The flavor is also quite malty - and a little bit soapy - with a hint of citrus hops on the finish. Seems out of balance - not one of Stones better beers.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Amber orange pour with a fingers worth of white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts up front with underlying citrus and earthy hops. Flavor is mostly sweet caramel maltiness with bitter hops coming through in the end. I honestly dont think Ive ever had this, but Im kind of disappointed by it. Maybe its expired?

Bottle at Patricks. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, hop, butterscotsch, fruit. Flavour is the same. OK beer.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a dark amber color, with a big offwhite head that quickly disappears and leaves lacing. Aroma of caramel and fruits. Sweet taste of caramel, not as fruity/hoppy as in the nose. Good beer, considering the meager abv.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Balanced beer. Liked better than the ipa. Stone seems to be a hop happy brewery and this one is not as strong.

SilentJo (68) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Poured a dark orange with an light tan head. Tastes nice, comes on strong but finishes with a caramel malty taste thats rather pleasant.

xShanex (60) - Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12 oz bottle. Copper with diminishing head. Bread and malt on the nose, sweet. Medium to full body consisting of malt and bready sweetness. Lacking a balanced hop character. Have another? Maybe next year.
