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.

I recently decided I was going to try and hunt down as many of these top 50 IPAís as possible. I was a lot more surprised that I hadnít rated this one, than I was that it made the list. The IPA is solid and Iíve enjoyed it for years. Pours a clear oily golden color with a thick foam head and lace. 22 oz bottled on 7/26/15, so itís closer to the best by date than it is the bottled date. Huge citrus hop aroma and flavor thoughout. Just a standard, solid, hoppy IPA here. Impressed with this one.

Zlotta (444) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
0.355 l bottle from FIRMA BIER, no bb date. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, frothy, stable, white head. Intense, sweetish-fruity aroma of orange blossom, mango, honey, resin and tangerine. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of orange blossom, tangerine, mango, honey, caramel and pine, followed by a medium long, medium bitter and slightly warming finish. Medium body, creamy to oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Assumingly a bit past its prime according to Stoneís freshness definition but nevertheless a very good beer. Nicely balanced, not intrusive, great palate, just round.

Great to come back to an old favourite. Wow thatís more bitter than I remembered. Refreshingly so. Not too subtle at all. Great blend of a lot of pine and some citrus from the hops. A little sweetness from the malt. Packs a serious punch.

Great beer orange color really clear and fizzy despite their anti fizzy notes. Really bitter hoppy and crisp. Always a guaruntee go to.

Towey1989 (796) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, melon, slight pineapple, orange peel, pine, some resin and some caramel. Big taste of pine and resin plus grapefruit, melon, some mango, slight orange peel, subtle grass and a caramel backbone. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Full of flavour, very resinous and citrusy. Itís a nice west coast IPA but a bit too dry and resinous to be one of my favourites.

Beergaard (238) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2015
Decent stuff - bitter and refreshing. Some fruity, citric and enjoyable hoppy notes. A bit over rated - still pretty good though. After all Stone never fails.
