COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 I am thankful I can find this beer easily. It has an awesome citrus and floral aroma. The taste is quite bitter and easy to sip on. This stuff is addictive and I will continue to purchase this! RERATE : Had this again tonight oh yeah baby, better than I thought!

On tap. Met 2 friends at a bar and I recommend a round of Stone IPA’s. The other 2, having been raised on swill, did not like it. Me neither. I LOVED IT! And I got to drink their pints also! Orange/amber color with a firm but small white head. Incredible citrusy hop aroma. Great hop bitterness which was even better by the time I finished the 3rd pint. My new favorite IPA.(for now)

Best IPA I’ve tried yet. Simply perfect. Great light amber/golden appearance with a medium white head. Aroma is well balanced of fruits and hops. Flavor is well-hopped, not too complex, but just great. Slightly citrus, crisp. Could easily drink a bunch of these. Great.

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!

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2004
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.
