2.05/5  rDev -45.2%

Poured a hazy yellow with a thin layer of white head.

The smell is odd, not hoppy, almost soapy with a bit of astringency.

The flavor is a bit on the bland side with a light toasted malty base which isn't to bad, but the hops are on the flat side with just long light piney bitterness and no real depth to them. Also a touch of copper, maybe a bit of oxidization, I can't find a discernible bottle date to tell if its old or not.

The mouthfeel is light and a bit chalky.

Overall a pretty poor beer, I'm hoping maybe its just old, but I have a hard time thinking a fresh version would taste great either.

2.3/5  rDev -38.5%

Pours hazy orange-yellow with a dense white head that quickly dissipates, leaving some sticky lacing.

Aroma is sweet grainy malt. Some caramel and tropical fruit. Earthy hop bitterness and a bit of a mineral quality.

Taste is muted grainy malt. With a very slight earthy bitterness in the finish. Flavor seems disjointed and rather off. Finishes with an odd oxidized musty quality.

Mouthfeel is light bodied. A little too thin and watery to hold real flavor.

The flavor is really confused, thin, and uninspiring. Perhaps this is an off beer? However, I'm not ready to drink another one and put it to the test.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

I don't like the numerous accepted spellings for the titular conical dwelling. Just sayin'. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises biscuit, mild mixed greens, and a twinge of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, with more greens and sweeter flowers. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda wet feel. Overall, a middling pale ale at best, one that lacks any real character worth noting.

Amber colored brew with not much head. Nose is citric and somewhat hoppy. Flavor continues with muted grapefruit and sequestered hops which is just fine in an APA. Bitterness pretty much throughout peaking in the finish. Thanks to Jeff Krenner for the bottle.

Not Tyranena's best. It pours pretty yellow, slightly yellow. Not much head. Malty taste, light on hops. Definitely some fruit characteristics. Not that citrusy, but a little. Almost a little corn flavor. Not my fav from this brewery. The IPA is amazing.

A. golden. Light head good retention.

S. Lightly fruity with the right amount of hops.

T. The Stone Tepee Pale Ale has a light hoppy taste as well as a slight spiciness to it. Slight maltiness detected as well.

M. Nice mouth feel with the right amount of carbonation. Smooth.
D. Easy to drink. Perhaps light citrus (orange peel?) might make this one pop a bit. Overall, a decent beer worth trying. Tasted good with camembert and walnuts.

Pours a nice gold with a whole lotta suspended stuff in there, with a decent head down to a thing wispy film, and some nice lacing. The hop aroma is a bit fruity, though a bit odd, not grapefruit or lemon rind, more like peach skin, and its not my favorite. Little malts around here, kind of weak.

Taste is a bit odd to me, like the hop kiddies grew into hippy stoners and got all super herbal on me, its woody, and the malts are hard and rough. Now, I like my herbal woody tones as much as the next guy, but its just a bit much with this one. The mouth is pretty solid, carbonation is just right, with good body and dry finish. But I still just don't like this one, and I shouldn't judge this subjectively like this, but it is what it is, and its a dislike for this beer.

The thanks go to nflmvp for this one.

12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. No bottled date. Thanks to BeerFMAndy for the bottle!

(A)- Pours a clear orange color that produced a great frothy white colored head with some good retention & lacing.

(S)- Some bits of lemon & pine with some corn husk.

(T)- A light bitterness of pine with bits of lemon & corn.

(M)- A good carbonation level. Rather bitter with not much citrus to speak of. One dimensional.

(D)- A decent pale ale. Nothing to write home about, but easy to enjoy one after another.

Thanks to jpm30 for adding this to the trade.

A hazy, golden body with hints of orange in it. A cream colored head that recedes to a thin ring leaving minimal lacing down the sides. Citrus hops hit the nose very delicately. Bitter hop taste with a touch of lemon and grapefruit which lingers nicely on the tongue a bit. The only negative about this beer is that there is a slight wateriness to the body. Medium body that makes this a good, drinkable beer. Very good.

Orangish-gold. Off-white head settles quickly to an incomplete cap.

Light citric hops lead the nose, with some nice orange zest the predominant note. Good spiciness from the yeast. Solid biscuity malt supports. Solid APA nose.

Medium in the mouth, and a let down from the nose. The malt is the star here, but it's pretty diffuse. A bit of orangey hop flavor adds some complexity, and there is a decent level of bitterness that kicks in on the mid-palate, but there's really not much to it. Finish is of decent length with the bitterness eventually overcoming the malt.

Very fine carbonation, but it is at a relatively high level. When combined with the mineral profile of the beer, it really accentuates the hops at the expense of the malt. Drinkability is okay, it's just not a particularly captivating beer. That said, I'd happily have a session with it.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a lightly-hazed golden color with another flash head that falls back to the collared ring of fizz, minimal lacing. Smells of floral and light orange peel, tastes of cracker malt, lemon / orange peel, and unfortunately lacks much of the floral / perfume nuance from the nose. Spritzey carbonation on a lighter body.

3.26/5  rDev -12.8%

The beer is clear and light golden with a thick, white head. Aromas of muted floral hops, biscuit, malt, a hint of citrus. Bready malts with a touch of earth and subtle floral and hop notes. Thin body with light bitterness. Middle of the road pale ale.
