This is a nice, mellow, sessionable Pale Ale. Much more in the English style than in the super hoppy American style, which was a surprise considering Stone's other stuff.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing stuck around the glass.
The smell had a nice settling sweet to bitter grassy and lemon / citrus aroma absorbing a light caramel base underneath.
The taste pretty much copied the smell and added a little bit of breadiness to the taste.
The mouthfeel was semi-smooth with a sessionable crisp light malty sweet aftertaste that led to the same sort of finish.
Overall, mmmm...good APA by a stellar company what more could one ask for.
