Pours a deep amber into a pint glass. 1 inch foamy head that dissipates into a 1/2 inch lacing.
Very piney on the nose, citrusy, lots of hops for an Amber Ale, but hey, this is Stone Brewing we're talking about!
Hops right on the tongue, with a hint of malt sweetness in the back end.
An amber ale that reminds you of a hoppy pale ale. At 4.4%, very drinkable and tasty.

Beautiful red amber, pretty transparent. Lots of coppery bone lacing.

Smells of grains with very light hop sting. Like a good red.

The taste is hoppier that the nose lets on. A refreshing swigger. It seems halfway between a PA and a red. I am happily confused.

Overall: Fantasizing about sessioning this and Founder's All Day side-by-side.

Dark amber color with a tan head and moderate lacing. Big citrus hops in the aroma. Flavor was citrus hops with hints of pink grapefruit. A little malt in the background but a good hop finish. Just a little thin, flatness in the finish. Overall good amber.

Pours an amber to walnut colored body with reddish hues beneath the dense, tan head that slowly disappears to leave a thick, tacky lacing.

Earthy hop aromas float from the glass, consisting of wood, pine, and citrus with secondary aromas of caramel malt.

The flavor is a bit sweeter, focusing more on the caramel malt and citrus hops with the pine and woodnotes taking a back seat.

Medium in body with generous carbonation and a bitter, puckering finish.

This is a great beer with excellent flavors and aromas to entertain the senses without the higher abv associated with similarly flavored beers making it great for sessions.
