Had on tap right at the brewery itself after the tour.

Beer pours a ruby-orange color with a good bit of foam.

The beer smells sweet and just slightly hoppy. Floral notes are also present.

The beer tastes extremely fresh and refreshing. Slightly hoppy, but not too much. Also a bit sweet.

The mouthfeel is very thin, as you would expect from a pale ale.

Overall, very nice pale

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Good looking one finger head that dissipates slowly leaving behind some fantastic lacing.

Smell: Very good smell with a balance of hops and sweetness.

Taste: Delicious taste that is very well balanced. The sweetness and hops flavor hits first with a nice bitter malt taste on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Mild carbonation with a medium body. Not the smoothest finish but still very good.

Overall: Another excellent beer from Stone Brewing. Definitely worth buying again.
