Beer Review - Stone Brewing Ripper Pale Ale

Stone Brewing - Ripper Pale Ale

Beer Type: American Pale Ale - 5.70% ABV

Appearance: Stone in a can! Got the stone devil with some bright surfer type colors on it. Beer poured a copper/amber color with a beige head.

 Dank hops aroma with pine, grapefruit, and resin. Doesn't smell like a pale really.

First Drink:
 Something a bit soapy? Otherwise it's pretty much like it smells only with more malt.

 Medium bodied and a bit sticky with a bite from the carbonation.

Last Drink:
 A bit more tropical fruit flavors coming out of the hops and malt combo now.

 It's a bit odd for a pale ale and not what I was thinking it would be.

 Hard to follow up my last pale ale review with this one. Not even the same.

3 out of 5. Too malty and dank for my pale ale needs.
