Pours nicely with a good head. Darker than many California pale ales. Stone makes big beers and this one seems to have a stronger emphasis on malt than on hops. The bitterness is not over the top but lingers nicely. I personally prefer a more floral aroma than this has, but it occupies a nice nitch for drinkers who want a full bodies PA with some hoppiness that balances well with malt.
I don't regard this as much of a session beer as do some of the other reviewers. I enjoy one at a session but then feel like moving on to something else.
