Something else stands out every time I drink this beer. One day, it’s the mild hoppy flavor. Another day it’s the light-malt roastiness. Sometimes, both. Either way, delicious, very balanced beer. Pours red with a very light head. grimreaperguru (263) - santee, California, USA - OCT 26, 2009

A great pale ale. For the newcomer to pale ales, it might be a bit over the top, but it’s on par with many pale ales. The hop balance is great and it’s a great overall beer. My standby, now that I found it close to home. chunz (1) - USA - JUL 12, 2010 does not count
Great smell, awesome aftertaste...would buy again...also I love the label design! mkel07 (5963) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2010
355ml bottle. Looks great in the glass with a thick deep light beige foam top and a dark orange hazy base. Flowery hop aromas delight the nose and lead into a mouth tingling flavour sensation with hops flavours that sit on the tongue well after the beer is gone. Another great effort from Stone.

Poured into a 12oz. Glass. Color is amber, and slightly cloudy. Head is off white and sticks around. Aroma right out of the bottle was very smooth hops. Flavor is slightly fruity (citrus) and hoppy. Medium full bodied with a lively carbonation. Finishes bitter the way you would expect a Stone brew to. Overall this is a great beer from Stone that is a much more mild alternative to Arrogant Bastard... this is a Tasty Bastard!!! Grzesiek79 (4295) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 11, 2014
No powiem ze jestem milo zaskoczony. Nareszcie piwo mocnio nachmielone i bardzo bardzo gozkie w piciu. O dziwo srednio sie wyczuwa w zapachu cytrusowosc chmieli z USA. A w smaku takze jakby to byluy inne odmiany, europejskie. Dziwne mam troche skojarzenia. Mocna podstawa slodowa orzechowa koncowka no i to o czym juz wspomnialem, bardzo gozki smak i finisz.

Bottle. Pours copper with a frothy white head. There are aromas of caramel, cut grass, bready tones and floral hops. It really smells fantastic. Flavors start off slightly malty but then lean heavily on nuttiness, bready tones and some rather herbally floral hops. Clean, hoppy, dry finish. Clean, but slightly oily mouthfeel. The hops kind of coat the tongue, which isn’t a bad thing. Overall, this is a very nice pale ale, but I find myself wanting just a bit more malt character. But don’t get me wrong. This one is a keeper. ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2015

I am going to miss this old friend. Pale 2.0 is bad. This one was great pine and subtle floral hop aroma. Taste of light malts and super fresh hops. Great dry finish, a superb pale ale. Sorry to see it go.
