By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

Standardowa IPA. Bez wad, ale też nie mająca nic takiego co by człowieka skłaniało do rozwodzenia się na jej temat.

The quintessential west coast IPA that defines everything great about the style. The appearance is translucent orange tinted gold. The head is creamy white. Super dank aromatics of pine and citrus. Apricot, grapefruit, lemon and tangerine dance around with fresh cut pine tree. The tasting treats the pallette to slightly toasted malt, refreshing citrus with a long dry pine finish. Clean, balanced malt bill let Stone’s talent for hop aggressiveness shine through. A brew that keeps me coming back for more and more.
