COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of Stone IPA! "Dry-hopped" for an extra two weeks, this unique process gives our IPA its bountiful hop aroma and rich hop flavor. A full 70+ IBUs (International Bitterness Units) creates this beer’s crisp and refreshing bitter character.

Day 3 of my IPA Advent calendar. Bottle rating. Much better on tap. I love Stone but in a month of IPA drinking this didn't hold up in uniqueness and felt tamer than I recall on tap. I plan to re-do this as it seems odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great IPA - a standard and for a good reason. Hints of grass, citrus, and extremely hoppy and delicious on the tongue that lingers after the finish. Extremely drinkable too.

Straight from the fridge to a large Sam Adams glass. Pours a nice golden color with a very nice hop scent and great hop taste. They say it's dry hopped for a couple weeks and it gives a great taste. Nice beer, nice aftertaste, a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: nice clear yellow beer with white head and minimal lacing A: grassy nose and piney hops T: a very good IPA. A little sweetness and good bitterness M: appropriate carbonation for the style. I would like a little more to cut through the maltiness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (948) - Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. A: Clear copper color with a thin fizzy white head. Bubbles throughout. No lacing. N: Tasty hop smell: grapefruit, pine, earth, and pineapple. Leaves and some Mary Jane. Cracker and biscuit backbone. T: Sharply bitter with a touch of malt sweetness. M: Resinous and razor dryness. Medium body. O: A much better beer than Ruination. The Stone yeast characteristics accentuate this one, and the hop profile is more pronounced. I’m actually surprised.

Saeglopur (434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Deep amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, pineapple, red berries, pine, some candy. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, peach, red berries, grass, caramel, very hoppy and smooth at the same time. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and it finishes bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, pine and peach notes. Wow, this is a tasty IPA, that offers almost everything at the same time: slightly sharp hop bite and a lot of fruitiness, complexity and high drinkability and most of all a perfect balance! This really is an accomplished example of this style!

Tap. 10 oz pour at new bohemia. Light gold with white head and good lacing. Grapefruit aroma. Very hoppy and super dry throughout. This one doesn’t pull any punches.

Cerveza que tomé ayer traída desde Chicago y que conserva su frescor. Es una cerveza ligera muy equilibrada con un amargor final bastante interesante. El color también es apropiado.

Transfer from BA review on 5-27-12- Poured from growler into pint glass Appearance – The brew pours a nice golden color, with a thin white head. The head fades rather fast and gives way to a very light amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is a nice mix of caramel, bread and a blend of citrus (mainly grapefruit in nature) and pine hop. Taste – The taste starts out of sweeter caramel and a nice smooth bread flavor. There is a nice citrus hop present up front, that begins losing ground to some of the sweeter tastes more toward the middle of the tongue. While it temporarily loses ground in the middle, more toward the end it intensifies again and mixes with a pine flavor, which in the end, leaves a slightly sweet hop flavor on the tongue. It is quite pleasing. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is above average in creaminess and the carbonation is right about average. The carbonation is good for the exciting hop flavors, but the creaminess is good for the malty and sweet. Together it is a pleasant feel. Overall – A nice easy drinking IPA. It’s not over the top in hop, or lacking either. It is a good session IPA.
