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.

Thanks Radek! Appearance is a golden colour with a white as can be head. Aroma is hoppy......very hoppy. Cascade hops here? Anyway, the smell makes your mouth water. Taste is hoppy bitterness to the max. Everything about this beer is hops and bitterness up the ying yang. Nice one Stone!

Clear copper with a white head, large bubbles. Fruity nose, hoppy, with citrus notes. Flavor slightly sweet, a bit thin, very bitter with grapefruit and violet notes.

jercraigs (8106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 Oct 2007. Lightly hazy orange body with a modest creamy off white head. Modest resiny hop aroma. Moderate bitterness throughout, light resiny character, very muted citrus notes. Smooth average to medium palate. Hops are pleasant but surprisingly muted. May have sat in the cellar just a bit too long. 7/3/7/3/15. <P>May 2004 Rerate - Hoppier aroma and a lot more resiny than the previous sample. Upped the aroma and overall 1 pt each. <P>May 2004. Thanks for bringing this great find Radek! (and Tim for the wee bottle I took home with me) Golden yellow colour with a solid white head. Nice hoppy aroma and plent of hoppy bitterness but not nearly as much of either as I expected. Fairly well balanced which I was not expecting either. Very drinkable, and a very nice beer but a bit disappointing. I will likely re-rate with the bottle in the fridge and a fresher palate.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 Pours a dark golden color with a small head. Scent is very fruity and the taste give you a blast of hops. Then the aftertaste of even more hops kicks in. A great IPA, not as good as Dogfish Head however.

This IPA is a hop head’s paradise! Powerful hoppy bitterness with toasted, carmel malt. Slight toffee flavor. fruity and good. Another nice one from stone!

This is my favorite beer. The hops, lord this has the best hoppy taste ever, very complicated, multilayered. Head is great.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2004
The aroma is exactly my idea of IPA. Some malts, hint of fruit and lovely hops. Could have more body, the hops overpower the malts, but more of both wouldn’t hurt. I’d call this a very nice session ale.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2012 actually, this is one of the better IPA´s I´ve tasted, but I´m not exactly a IPA man. Dark yellow amber colour, very hoppy citrus aroma, taste was VERY pleasantly hoppy, nice finish. NICE IPA! re-rate now a hop addict, world class

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2004
Golden w/ orange hue. Dense, fluffy white head. Crisp, fresh citrus aroma w/ an almost tropical fruit character. Sticky, resiny feel. Big, hoppy flavour w/ some nice biscuity malt & just a hint of mint. Long, extremely bitter finish.
