    This was one of the better amber ales I have had. The aroma is a of hops with a topical amber malt aroma. This beer was not a topical amber ale. I felt this beer had way more of a hop flavor than any other amber I have had be for. I also liked the low abv. What still amazes me is how they were able to get such a great hop flavor out of such a low abv. Stone once again doesn't disappoint. This was arguably the best amber ale I have ever had.

    Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a rich head that had nice retention and good lacing.
    Aroma: A good nose of citrus and pine, with malt breadiness.
    Taste: The hops is up front in this brew; grapefruit and rind, with juniper. The malt comes through with flavors of bread crust and toast.
    Texture: Crisp and creamy with a dry finish.
    Drinkalbility: Nicely balanced hops and malt, very drinkable. A good session brew.
    Presentation: Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

    At first I wondered if I got a bad bottle, because this beer wasn't living up to the hype for me. The malty flavor grew on me, but I still think it is way over priced at $12 per six pack. I'd drink it again ... if someone else is buying!

    it pours a rich amber color. The hops are evident the second it's poured. At first, there is a high citrus note but that goes away as the hops kick in. It doesn't have the most bite of any beer I've had, but the bite is there for sure! Surprisingly low ABV at 4.4.

    Great color, great flavor, aggressive but not overwhelming bite, very good lacing.

    [Best served in a Pint glass]

    It poured a hazy medium brown that supported a large light brown rocky head that was bellowing above the top of the glass. It dissipated at a rapid pace leaving just a little residue behind, although it was enough for some really excellent lacing. The aroma was unusually complex with a mild scent of toasted malts, a nice dose of piney hops and an earthy yeast with hints of sweet fruit, honey and a nice citrus note. The taste had kind of a sweet-acidic flavor with a slight fruity note from the onset. Then it slowly but firmly became extremely bitter with a nice strong hop presence and a touch of citrus at the end. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and nice and dry in texture with a subtle soft carbonation. Overall a unique tasting brew that was very enjoyable. A must try for a Hop Head.
