Poured into a glass mug. Pours slightly hazy amber with an eggshell colored two-finger length head. The head dissipates slowly. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption as well as a light cap of lacing. The aroma of piney hops is strong. There are also citrus and malt aromas as well. It's a very earthy smell. The big hop flavors hit up front to perfectly support the mild malt flavors. The citrus and sweetness are subdued, but present. It's incredibly well balanced. There is a slight bitter aftertaste. The body to this beer is actually surprisingly quite light, though it would be more light to medium. The carbonation is not strong, but this beer is still very easy to drink. Overall, this is another solid offering from Stone. It's a sessionable hop forward ale.

Poured into a plastic go-cup at Sydney's in the middle of French Quarter Fest.

A: clear amber with a tan, one finger head that settles.

S: light malts, toffee, citrus. Plus that famous Stone hop presense. A nice mix

T: Now this is what I've been looking for in a Stone. Hops and malts waltzing together in a perfect taste blend. Malts on the outset, with a whisper of hops that don't bite. Toffee and citrus done just right. A light feel that drinks like a full bodied brew.

M: medium, creamy. Frothy carbonation.

O: A very sessionable Stone-r. One I will require more of. Levitate me, little gargoyle!
