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.

Bottle. Great pale orange color with a nice white head. Smooth mouthfeel, plenty of alcohol kick, and that floral aroma. From start to finish, outstanding.

Great aroma, hops and grapefruit. Color is a nice gold. Taste is mostly the same as aroma, hops and grapefruit. Body medium to thin. Hops/bitterness is not overwhelming. The taste improves as it warms.

pineypower (2791) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 I always heard it was good, and boy did it smell good upon cracking it open. The amount and types of hops they use make a very nice bouquet of pine/citrus hop notes. Upon pouring it out it had a large foamy white head. It is a very smooth beer with a somewhat bitter after-taste, but not too bitter. A great very clean tasting beer, you can tell they do it right.

hopdog (10105) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Poured a deep amber/orange with a large frothy white head. Strong floral hoppy smell with hints of citris and malts. Smooth to drink. Bitterness after taste is almost done to perfection (not too much and not too less).

mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2004 22 oz bottle: this beer is truly delish! i could drink it ALL DAY LONG. or until i passed out. milky frothy white hed, looks like fluffy clouds. the color is one of orange and gold combined. Smells of, um hops? This brew puckers my lips at first encounter, it's sticky, resiny, and pungent as a mofo. The mouthfeel is smooth and buttery, and slight malts too. i'm way into it. stone leaves you wanting more and more, tastes better everytime in my opinion.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Tap (5/03/04): I think this is the beer I had (not anniversary). Pours with a golden, clear color with a nice frothy, white head. Aroma: lemon, hops, spice, orange. Flavor: initial sour lemon, orange rind, citrus, hops, dish soap, apple. Aftertaste: sweet lemon, fortune cookie.

Beaver (1488) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Stone IPA pours a golden color with some miniscule floaties. It has a huge, frothy, white head that lasts forever.

The nose is huge on hops (kind of on the grassy, piney side)! There are also some grapefruit tones. Very appealing!

The taste is hop juice up front, leading to some citrusey, bready malt. It ends with a big, bitter hop finish and aftertaste. It’s medium bodied and fairly well balanced - though it obviously favors the hops over the malts. The slight malt and citrus help balance it well.

Overall, this is probably the best IPA I’ve had to date. It’s a nose ahead of Avery IPA and Victory Hop Devil.
