12 oz, Best by 12/21/11...

Pours a dark, translucent orange, giant sticky off-white head eventually reduces to a decent cap, nice lacing.

Faint, pretty plain scent. Pale and bready malts with light hints of fruit and herbal hops, kinda earthy.

Taste has a bit more to it, very tame for a Stone brew though. Lots of bread and butter malt, caramel malt, small dose of herbal and grassy hops with some light fruitiness.

Smooth, decent mouthfeel, could use more carbonation.

This drinks kinda like an English pale, nice to see an American pale ale that's not a hop bomb now and then. Easy drinking but a little bland to me.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is dominated by piney hops. Taste is a hop bomb. Significant bitterness throughout, no balance to speak of. Feels medium bodied and very bitter in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Had on draft at Chameleon on a Friday after work (happy hour, but before all the kiddies showed up), poured into a pint glass.

Pours dark amber, much darker than a typical pale ale. The head is about a fingers wide white foam with minimal lacing.

Smell is malt with a dash of citrus from the hops.

Taste is great, malt with subtle hops and a mild bitterness. Medium body with minimum carbonation.
