36th review on BA
Draft to pint at T. Phillips in Glendora
App- When I 1st had this and I read about it, I neglected to recognize it was a Amber/Red. I was expecting something different to come out of that bottle. On draft is another story the color was the same but had a much nicer head than out of the bottle.
Smell- Its a malty smell with a bit of the roast lingering after the initial smell. Was a small bit of an earthy hop aroma as well.
Taste- This does not taste like a 4.4% Drinks so much bigger and better than that. Its a slight bitter but its negligable at best. Great taste that is well balanced.
Mouth- Perfect carbonation and all around good little beer.
Drink- I had to drive home but would have loved to stick around for a few more pints of this nice little beer.
Serving type: on-tap

This ale pours a gorgeous deep reddish copper color with a thick white head that lasts well into the beer. It does finally give way to a nice film and spiderweb lacing. The aroma is more subtle than I've come to expect from Stone but delicious none the less. There is a lot of sweet malts on the nose with an underlying hoppy bitterness, mostly citrus and pine. The flavor is quite sweet at first with lots of malt and caramel notes this is followed by a bit of a bitter hop bite that resolves to a nicely balanced finish. The ale sips quite light and easy, almost too much so. I'd honestly like a little more coating and lasting flavor with this one. This is a nice amber/red ale but nowhere near the best of the offerings out there.

Poured sparkling copper with white cap- very bright and moderately. Carbed
Aroma: caramel, biscuit and floral.
Taste: nice bitter backbone. Biscuit, sweet waffle and piney. There's a fruit that I can't quite place .... Mango?
Mouth is moderate with good malt presence.
Overall: very balanced and tasty - has a nice hop profile and is very robust for a session beer
