This is one of the better pale ales I've had. Thanks to mentor for including this bottle in a trade.

The beer looks great. It is a clear and pale golden amber with a nice carbonation supporting a tall frothy white head. The foam laces to the side of the glass quite well.

The smell is good as well. Has a very bubblegum and hard candy-ish hop aroma with a little bit of floral. Behind the hop bouqet is a sweet caramel malt aroma.

The taste is wonderful and refreshing. The same hop aromas transfer very well to the tastebuds. Very melon-ish. Only a little bite from the hops, and a very well balanced caramel malt flavor. Very refreshing.

I could only ask for a bit more of a carbonated mouthfeel to help give the hop bite that extra zing. Seems a bit light in body, and quite refreshing, though it doesn't seem as crisp as something like SNPA. Either way it is just as tasty and a hell of a drinker. It is obvious that Stone put some quality ingredients into this beer as opposed to some breweries I've tried recently who just throw the cheapest crap they can find together into a brew kettle. Even something as basic as a pale malt has a noticable difference in quality. Kudos to Stone.
