22oz brown bomber with the standard stone silk screen design. I have no idea why this and their levitation ale never make it to out here but all their other brews and seasonals do. So this was ordered online. This one pours a great orange amber color with a good-sized head of off white. As the head disappears it leaves a beautiful lacing around the glass and beer. The aroma is predominantly citrus hops with a trailing sweetness from the malt. The taste of sweet malt briefly starts this one before the hop rush kicks in. The finish is a hop bitterness that counter balances the malts nicely. Mouthfeel is unusually thick for a pale ale but I like it, there is also a good amount of carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer as most are from stone and is a great pale ale. It really makes me wonder more why this isn’t as abundant in stores as the rest of their line. Oh well its definitely worth a try for anyone that comes across it.
