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.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 What can I say but yum. This has to be one of my favorites, a wonderfully fruity sweet hop aroma accompanies the flavor wonderfully. If you love hops, this brew’s for you, flavor is full and fruity, with good carbonation for the beer. Pours a thick white head with a clear golden body. A great brew.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - OCT 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2009 Nice bitter IPA, has an airy mouthfeel that doesn’t seem as crisp as it should be. one dimensional, not very clean. very orangey throughout. The aroma is the best thng about it, huge outstanding hoppy nose. the rest is good but it’s not as good as torpedo or union jack. definitely good but overhyped.

Like everything else from Stone, this is a great beer. Nice and Hoppy but not overbearing.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a dark amber with a lasting white head. Not very carbonated. Long bitter aftertaste, but well balanced and creamy mouthfeel. Actually doesn’t seem as bitter as advertised. All in all, a very good beer.

hopheadjohn (14) - Manasquan, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Outstanding IPA. Pours a orange(ish) coppery gold color. Not much of a noticable nose. Floral citrus flavor goes a long way. Somwhat sweet, but tart hoppy finish is memorable. A Home Run.

benpickens (475) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Golden copper with sparse carbonation and a huge long lasting rocky head. Bready citrusy aromas. Touch of malt up front and hops mid and late for a sustained hop finish.

larsniclas (6532) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2006
[Sampled at SBF -06] Hazy golden. Small bubbly head. Big, powerfull, fruity hoppiness. Dry and big hoppy bitterness. Sweet and citric.

CultHero (16) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Pours a clean golden amber with an off-white head that lasted thoughout the pint. The aroma and flavor was a sweet floral balance. One of my favorite IPAs.

good ipa, nothing special. good flavor and clean bitter aftertaste. kind of a boring beer by stone’s standards.
