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.
