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.

Crisp, golden color with a cohesive white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Flavor is thick, resiny and chewey with hops. Not overly bitter but chock full of that good hop flavor. Very above average.

Golden orange with a slight haze. Large, thick head that dissipated over time. Lacing all the way down the glass. Aromas of fresh hops and ripe citrus. It has a nice bite from hops but not over-powering. A citrus flavor coats the mouth and has a pleasant after-taste. Wonderful IPA.

Very nice crystal clear orange color with a big frothy off-white head that leaves creates nice glass lacing. Super citrus, grapefruit aroma some sweet malt also. Flavor is grapefruit and sweetness. Bitterness really kicks in towards the end. Yum this stuff is good. Body is medium and not overly dry but still very crisp. Some stickiness is noticeable on the teeth. Overall an excellent IPA, one to which others should be compared.

Pours a juicy orange color with a nice off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is very citrus with some floral notes as well. Mainly grapefruit smells in this beer. At first this beer is surprisingly sweet but ends with a huge hop bitterness. Body is medium with a rather dry finish. Very good IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2003 Killer IPA, big-time grapefruit smell, see-through copper. Sweet and fruity with brutal hops.

NathanJ (42) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 1pint 6 oz. bottle poured orange/amber with lively carbonation and an off white head. Sweet flowers and sugar aroma, generous hop bite and bitterness with an awesome floral taste. hides the alcohol well except for a warming in the back of your throat and the buzz at the end of the bottle :). very nice

Color is a lighter shade of pale yellow, some hazy cloudyness with a finger high white head of looser thickness, fades and bubbles down to some bubbles along the rim. Lace in webby loose sheets. Smell is quite floral and sweetly hopped lending light pine, light grapefruit and a touch spicy. Not all that strong but very fresh and hoppy. Swirling brings out some soft caramel malts and alcoholic warmth. Taste is a calming smooth, subtle hoppy little treat. Solid floral and dried sense of hops with a good touch of pine and grapefruit mixing with peach notes. Nice light backing of soft caramel malts; a bit of toasted bread. Well balanced and the bitterness is well under check with nice lingering spicy dried grapefruit notions in the finish. Lightly creamy and a fair medium body feel with a crisp, clean subtle hoppy finish. Maybe expecting to much from this beer with all the high recommendations. Its a solid IPA for sure, but didn't quite make the impact on me with more of a mellower hop flavor then I was anticipating. Comparisons aside, this was very close to Town Hall's Columbus Pale. So as an IPA this was more like a great pale.

Wow, great aroma. Starts out as sweet peaches and finishes with a nice soft floral aroma. Ok head with light carbonation but leaves some great lacing on the glass. Flavor is hoppy but not so much that you pucker up while drinking. Quite bitter flavor too with a little citrus. Color is a cloudy amber orange. Finish is bitter and lasting. A top quality IPA that is not over the top hopped and balanced very well for the hops that are there. Stone comes through again.
