look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a beautiful transparent amber color with a fluffy tan colored heading. Very alive looking and a full of lacing after every sip.

Heavy caramel malts with a grassy and medicinal hop profile to match. Little bit more of a sour dough malt is dominant in the finish.

Both malts and hops are dead even in this pairing. A blast of that malty base really pulls through at first with an earthy,wood character but the bitter and grassy hops kind of take over for the finish.

Light-medium bodied with excellent balance, great carbonatin and a slight diacetyl slickness in the finish.

Very hard to believe this is 4.4% ABV. Very tasty and filling. This a perfect session beer for any time of year.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- Deep amber color with a tan head that has nice retention and lacing

S- Caramel malt base, some citrus hops, but a little less than what I normally get from Stone.

T- Solid flavor depth for 4.4 abv. Orange peel, apricot, and pine work together nicely with the caramel malt base. Some toasted nuts also come through. Good balance. Bitter finish.

M- Certainly a dry finish here. Light to mid body, while maintaining fairly creamy. Super drinkable.

O- A well done hoppy amber. Low abv makes this one of the more favorable sessions I've had. Not quite as bold as most from the Stone line, but a solid beer nonetheless.

Serving type: on-tap
