4.13/5 rDev +6.7%
Poured from a bottle into a mug.
Appearance: Bronze reddish color with a nice head and good lacing. Decent carbonation.
Smell: Nice semi-sweet caramel smell. There are citrus and floral tones.
Taste: Very nice taste. It has a slight bitterness toward the beginning that fades and finishes smooth. It is clean and crisp.
Mouthfeel: It has a nice crisp feel that goes down smooth. There is a mild carbonation and it leaves a mild bitter after taste.
Overall: Very good beer that I would drink again. It has a nice complexity and is easy to drink. It was a little pricey but I would definitely drink again.

Pours a deep amber color with a big cloudy puffy marshmellowy head. Smells like hops and citrus. A somewhat chewy, thin mouthfeel. Very refreshing. Hops and citrus are balanced nicely with a faint malty undertone. Lots of flavor and super sessionable, a great beer for working in the yard on a hot day.

A: Clear dark amber. With a wispy head.
S: Nice malty, bready smell. Some fruit is in there like apples.
T: Carmel malts. Pear and apple cider fruitiness / tanginess. Nice hop bitterness afterwards. Pretty balanced in my opinion.
M: Light to medium body. A little dry.
D: Real good. Sluggin it back. Nice drink.

4/5 rDev +3.4%
Appearance: Pours a reddish brown/dark amber hue with about a finger length head, leaves little lacing
Smell: Upfront it has a pleasant aroma of hops with citrus, grapefruit, and wood chip notes; has some malt qualities to it
Taste: The flavors are soft as you would expect from an amber/red ale, and the taste is about what you would expect from the smell.
Mouthfeel: leaves an oil feel on your tongue, its light bodied and smooth, aftertaste is soft as is carbonation.
Drinkability: Its very drinkable since it is such a light beer; it goes down smooth and easy; and I could definitely session with this beer no problem.

A coppery red ale that pours out fast and has a tan head that dissipates fast. A pleasant brew on the whole, that combines both bitter and sweet flavors. It'll never be one of my favorites, but it's a half-notch or so above the middle of the curve. I'll probably buy it again.

3.23/5 rDev -16.5%
Appearance - Pours a dark amber/orange from the bottle with a lacey off-white head that is retained very well.
Smell - A pleasing smell of citrus hops, pine, grass.
Taste - A mild bitterness that ends in a bit of a sour note. There is some taste of grapefruit that shows itself. Not too much malt characteristic.
Mouthfeel - Fairly watery.
Drinkability - A somewhat disappointing beer from Stone. Not at all undrinkable, but it lacks a lot of complexity in the taste. The smell seems to promise a lot that just isn't followed up once it is drunk. Decent, but probably won't be having this one again.
