3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Nice deep amber color, big frothy cream-colored head, yeasty malt aroma. A bit of pine? Tast is hoppy with a big helping of malt. Heavy mouth feel. Tasty. Very different from my usual pale ale (Sierra Nevada). Stone is darker and heavier. A very good ale.
Update: Just drank this after having a Stone IPA, and was less impressed. Perhaps the IPA overpowered the APA, so I won’t change the score now. Will have it again in the future to see if it warrants a change.
Pretty surprised by this beer the first time I tried in back in 2011 at a Flying Saucer stone tasting in 2011. Considering the modus operandi of stone, the subtlety of this beer, its balance between caramelly sweetness and citrus hops, it quite nice. Grumbo (3464) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017

Sample at DØE 2016. Hazy amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma and flavour of hops, malt, caramel, citrus and bitterness. mice (994) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Kuparinen, punertavanruskea kirkkaahko olut, joka ei vaahtoa juuri lainkaan. Tuoksussa humalaa, havuisuutta, sitruksisuutta sekä jokin - ei niin miellyttävä - sivutuoksu, josta en saa päähäni mitä se on. Maku mielenkiintoinen yhdistelmä karamellista makeutta ja greippistä katkeroa. Katkeran greippinen jälkimaku. Keskiasteinen suutuntuma ja sopivasti hiilihappoja.

Pours a murky amber with a thin white head which is gone quickly........aroma is slight earth, sweet malts......taste is medium mouthfeel, earth, bitterness tailing off into a slight metallic finish. BeerRenter76 (1028) - Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Originally rated on 9/16/08. Another good offering from the Stone brewing co. Thier pale ale pours a deep burnt copper colored body, the head is a little on the thin side though. Aroma of sweet malts and floral hops. Flavor gravitates towards earthy malts and the hops compliment nicely. Overall a pretty fine pale ale. melush (4341) - SPAIN - JUN 24, 2016

In short: buttery viscous pale ale.
Pours little hazy deep gold-orange, with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Buttery, bready, ripe fruit nose. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is some sweet, fruity, peachy, still malty, biscuits, buttery. Enjoyable.
