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: APR 10, 2007 2003 Draught. Yes!! I love it. I get tired of all of these new super wowee double ultra IPAs. . . I like a sessionable IPA. 2004 draught. Yes. Good. Balanced.
Having had bottles of this twice now in blind tastings, I havent been as impressed. I actually got some yeasty, blandish, sourish type notes, almost buttery. Though the mouthfeel is still creamy and soothing and the nose expressive.

Hoppy as any exmaple that is available on the market today. The overall strength of hops somewhat takes over the the other subtle flavors that show as it crosses the palate. Overall it is a definite "must try" for any fan of the style, but unbalanced overall.

Big head and citrusy-hop aroma start off nicely on top a beer that is just a shade lighter than many IPA's. The body was a little thin and the finish was short. With an IPA like Ruination, I don't know why they need this beer.

White foamy head with lacing. Golden appearance which is see through. Smooth, drinkable, well balanced hops and malt. Nice (small but effective) hop aftertaste. Hop acidity tingles on my tongue as the beer goes down. Slightly dry but not overly so. Excellent beer.

Very hoppy. Loads of cascade. Great refreshment. Unfortunately the finish is slightly thin and short.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Lighter color than expected- seems like the probably stuck to just pale malt without any character malts. Not to worry- this beer is all about the hops anyway. Aroma and flavor are overloaded with NW hops which pack a huge punch to the senses. Very resiny almost like that of an I2PA, yet it is still very drinkable.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Another IPA that is just way, way too hoppy for this rater. Wow! A small sized white head that was creamy and smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was carboned and cloudy with a golden hue. The nose is hops without question and the flavor is bitter and very hoppy. The palate is tingly and hoppy. This is a medium-full bodied IPA with good lacing. Just too much hoppiness for someone who is not a hop head.

This bottled brew poured a large head of white colored fine to medium sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a slightly hazy carbonated light yellow brown colored body and a good lace. The aroma is all hops and the mouthfeel is tingly and stongly hopped with a lingering hop presence. It has a hoppy flavor with more hops for added flavor to go with the hop that are in the flavor next to the hops that were added to add more hoppy flavor to this very hopped brew. Did I mention that it had hops in it?
