look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Consumed 11/15/12

Appearance: Somewhere between light amber, orange, and copper - very clear - leaves some spotty lacing

Smell: So... mellow... is this really a Stone beer? - floral citrus, light fruits, some gentle pine - tons of caramel malts - lightly toasted, lightly sweet - very clean, very balanced

Taste: As mellow and quaffable as the aroma suggests - lightly sweet caramel malts, lightly toasted - clean, decidedly non-earthy - lightly fruity, with some hints of orange and tangerine - very mildly bitter

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice carbonation, very smooth, easy to drink

Overall: A benchmark for American Pale Ales

I bought this beer because I realized I hadn't had it in a while. I didn't realize that I had failed to ever review it on BA. It's actually pretty odd pale ale for Stone, in the sense that it is balanced and not particularly hoppy. It is absurdly drinkable, greater than the sum of its parts.
