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.

Ahh, hops. Candi sugar, green floral and grassy hops. Grapefruity. Lemon pez. Floral, bitter finish. Really lemon pledgey.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2004 Pours a bright golden orange. Nice sized white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops, a little whif of alcohol and malt too. Flavor is full of hops. Palate is happy, wow, might be my favorite IPA to date. Thanks to SHAG for this tasty brew.

The first word that comes to mind when imbibing this wonderful beer is power. Everything about it screams "more". Its hard to believe a beer that is so hoppy can be so well balanced and malty. The mouth feel is incredible as each bite, er...umm. drink is absolutely filled with richness and delight. A true to style IPA that could only have been made with an American Flare.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Pours a deep gold with a thin, yeasty head. Aroma is strong and hoppy with a firm backbone of malt. Very hoppy flavor as well, with the sweet, fruity malt coming in on the back end leading to bitter hop finish. An excellent IPA.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 This is a damn good IPA. IPA’s are soon becoming one of my favorite styles of beers. This ale starts out with a stong aftertaste, but once you taste buds get acclamated then its smooooth sailing from here on in. This beer has a crisp beginning with a mildly bitter after taste. For the money there is no IPA better than this one. Go out and get it!

beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Aroma: Citrusy, grapefruity hop over caramel/toffee malt. Appearance: Darker gold color, low head retention. Flavor: Grapefruity and flowery hop flavor. Nice malt backbone and flavor. Well balanced flavor. Mouthfeel/Palate: Nice and assertive bitterness,which gives way to sweet maltiness. Medium mouthfeel. Overall: Straightforward IPA, but good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Classic American IPA Light and hoppy aroma belies what comes with your first sip. First impression makes you do a double take, glorious hoppiness. Very fresh tasting hops with hints of fruity sweetness. Thick refreshing finish focusing on the malty/floraly finish as the bitterness fades. Makes you want even more. Golden-orange appearance, finger amount of head that fades quickly.

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 A really pretty orangey apple juice clear pour with a short soapy white head. Slow moving carbonation. Clean fruit, pine and flowery aroma. Relatively straight forward for Stone. Herbal with fresh grapefruit. Mild toasted to a charred flavour. Lots of minerals. A malty caramel and soft peach flavour kicks in near the end. Nicely balanced. Very tastey.

12 OZ bottle (thanks Sam). decants a golden-orange color with a big sticky white head that laces the glass... minimal carbonation...scents of plumbs, musty caramel and ample floral hopping. Starts mellow with a nice whack of fruit laden malts....THEN the hops take over and make a complex floral/grassy/bitter mixture from those northwest cones melding with the ample cramel malts gives a buttery peach impression...finish is surpisingly thick with the bitterness restrained by the maltiness plays long on the aftertaste as a lingering bitter fruit impression. A big beer for the style.
