Stone Brewing Co. doesn’t waste a lot of time and effort naming their beers. Their pale ale has a slightly citrusy scent, and the middle is all bitter hops with a touch of grapefruit trailing off to a bitter, slightly piney finish. This is, to me, a pure pale ale, and it’s dominated by a clean bitterness. If you like bitter beers, this is a good one.
I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
