COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and youíll 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 beerís crisp and refreshing bitter character.

The head vanishes almost instantly but the crisp bitter bite of this brew makes up for any set backs in its appearance or aroma. You got to give it up to Stone brewers for creating these damn good recipes and expierments they do.

Best IPA Iíve had to date...no question. Pronounced hops but not rough on the taste buds. Beautiful deep gold color and thick head. Citrus flavor with little aftertaste. The above average acohol content gives it a warm feeling on the way down. Well done stone. Iíll have to try the rest of the line.

Pours a deep golden colour with a thick head. Standard I.P.A. aromas ie. citrus hops, malts. The taste is a knockout punch. Big hops,pine, citrus, grapefruit, some peaches strong malt backbone, nice mouthfeel. A great I.P.A.

Thanks to Lord Gorlock for this one. Pours a amber/golden color with fairly active carbonation and a rocky, dense head. Aroma is wonderful, fruity hops and not much else. Flavor is very tasty, but lack balance. Of course, this is an American IPA, so what did I expect? Hop flavor is exceptional, and mouthfeel is smooth. Great lacing in glass. Iíd definitely like to try more beers by this brewer.

poured a light golden color with a thick whte with impressice retention. Flavor was mildly sweet with a good hoppy bite that was not to overpowering just right for the other flavors in the beer. I could detect a skight lemony presence in aroma and flavor. good ipa

Pours a nice light copper color. Very aromatic. Smells very hoppy with some sweetness. Power hop flavor. They did it with this IPA, very hoppy but so well balanced. Little alcohol kick at to give it a nice finish.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2004

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2004
12 oz. bottle. Pours light brown/orange with a fairly small, white head that almost completely disappears. Aroma is hops, slight alcohol, honey, and perhaps slight citrus. Flavor is immediately slightly malty sweet and very, very hoppy, with a tiny alcohol warmth on the way down; pronounced grassiness in the middle. Aftertaste is remarkably bitter, but pretty clean. Not as clean and crisp on the palate as Iíd like, wth a slighty syrupiness to the beer. Is this a 4.1? Hell, no. Really good, IPA, though? Sure.

Bottled. Good sized head, color like in the picture, kind of golden honey with some orange, great lacing, fully lasting head, crystal clear...beautiful, beautiful beer. Very aromatic...sweet, grapefruit, honey, sugar, floral; smells like a good IPA. Front is sweet and malt laden honey and sugar, middle is more balanced with hops and finish is definite hops, powerful hops, but the malts are fully lasting and some alcohol flavor comes in to balance out the hops...itís fantastic. Bitter, fantastically bitter, but nearly balanced with a long lasting...balanced...finish, slightly sweet. Wow. Fullish medium body, some syrupy character, pleasant, lively carbonation. Good from start to finish and Iím having another.
