bottle into Duvel Glass
appearance: dark mahogany with a subtle amberhue, large white head with intricate lacing, good retention
smell: tropical fruity hops, emphasis on citrus, grapefruit and apple
taste: very well balanced, enough bitterness to satisfy a hop head but smooth enough to appeal to anyone, follows the nose with citrus apple and grapefruit notes. very refreshing smooth finish, bitterness doesn't linger too long.
mouthfeel: not much carbonation, surprisingly full body for a pale ale
overall: I would say this may be a benchmark for the pale ale category, alongside Sierra Nevada's classic green label. Never had a bad beer from Stone; think of this as their "light" IPA, all the flavor and awesomeness, but in a more session-able variety.
