Released September 2000 - both bottles and kegs. Brewed to celebrate the 4th Anniversary of the Stone Brewing Co. Identical recipe of the always-available Stone IPA, but
with 3+ times the hops (we couldn't actually put four times the hops in and
still get beer back out...). 100+ IBU's (International Bitterness Units).
The human palate can taste up to the 75-90 IBU range.

The king of IPAs. Only true lovers of the hop should try this one, as only the true hophead could stand the pure intense rush of hops. The smell alone almost makes your eyes water, and the first sip is dazzlingly bitter. But there is also a HUGE malt background that somehow manages not to get swallowed up, at the same time bumping the ABV up to a knee-bending 8%. The 5th Anniversary is due out soon, and the brewery reports that it will be bottled regularly from then on - my prayers have been answered. One of the ten best beers on the planet.
