Hoppy Stony Face Red Ale ~ Hoppy Brewing Company

Appearance: amber and garnet hues with a touch of haze. Coppery head, filmy and bubbly. Swirls average.

Nose: hoppy. Red apple skins, peach skins, apricot skins – all including skins. Grapefruit pith, lemon pith, dry outer skins galore. Crisp. Dried hop cones. Clean and crisp.

Palate: clean, crisp, and dry. Apples, peaches, and apricot with skins included followed by sweetness of meats and juices. Mouth dries immediately – grapefruit and lemon. Skins and sweetness up front. Hop cones on top of tongue. Clean and unassuming but to the hoppy point.

Final Thoughts: the one thing about not expecting a lot out of a beer is when one gets happily surprised by a very pleasant tasting and quaffing experience. That was me and this beer.
