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.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2004 Favorite IPA -- hops are everywhere without making the beer lazy. Anyone can throw a ton of hops into a beer, but they seem to have found the perfect amount at Stone. The Ruination IPA is nice too, but I think this beer is even tastier. DRINK!

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Nice looking orange-golden colour with a thick lasting off-white head. Nice citrus grapefruit, pine, resiny aroma with some spicy character as well. Flavour is surprisingly sweet and fruity with plenty of malt to back up the hops. Some cookie dough character also ends up in here. Nowhere near as bitter as I had been expecting but a fantastic well balanced IPA.

This is a beer I can drink on a regular basis, one of the best IPA’s. Stone knows what they’re doing haha. Nice tangy taste and a great orange/copper color to it. Great citrus aroma. Can’t beat it.

Just an amazing work of IPA art. This is a brew you can spend night after night after night with. Or come home to on a hot summer day. You know it will never let you down.

wow, let me tell you. THis stuff is pretty darn good. Pours a beautiful copper/orange/amber mix with a medium sized medium lasting white head. THe nose is sweet with hops and the taste is sharp with hops that finish bitter with a tang of sweetness. Pretty good. one of the better IPAs that I have had. Not overly powerful.

on tap@mugs in brooklyn. i dunno, every new stone beer i taste i expect might be the one to really convince me how good this brewery is. but this seemed like a pretty typical ipa. a huge amount of hops and some decent marmalade and doughnut sweetness. nothing wrong with it in particular

Oh, Mama! Been drinking many great IPAs of late and this is one of them. This golden/amber nectar with a frothy white head attacks the nose with that citrus/hops aroma I’m coming to love. Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and lightly carbonated. The flavor was, well, awesome. Clean, crisp, refreshing citrus notes. Just a great brew.

When it comes to IPAs, it doesn’t get much better than this. Citrus, lemony hop aroma mirrored with similar flavors. Not overpowering but enough to fulfill you. Spicy lingering finish. Medium boided with nice carbonation. Well done.

Bottle. Medium white head with orange color. Stong hop aroma of grapefruit that carries over into the flavor. Long hop finish.

Bottle. pours a lovely orange color with hops apparent immediately. amazing aroma of hops, a bit of malt, and jasmine as well as other flowers. the taste is also packed with hops but not overly bitter, again a jasmine like flavor almost like jasmine tea but more bitter. very refreshing brew, great for the summer...one of the best ipa’s i’ve had!!!!
