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: MAY 5, 2004 Nice Rocky Head. Amber in Colour. The Flavour is of Hops in the IPA tradition. The Head dissipates slowly.WOW! This packs a Hop Wallop. The Alcohol is present as the flavours of Malt, Caramel, Grapefruit and Tangerine Prevail. This is one Creamy Concoction with Hops in Abundance. Prepare yourself to enjoy this brew with great Vigor. Salud!

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 Very hoppy, with citric overtones. The bitterness is prevalent but well balanced.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2004
Pours dark gold, with a nice white head and great lacing. I swear I saw the Taj Mahal in my lace! Very hoppy aroma, with some citrus. Tastes very hoppy, with a dry, bitter hoppiness. Finishes very smooth and complex, with a creamy, hoppy, great mouthfeel. A delicious IPA, and worth seeking out. One of the best, as usual, from Stone.

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2004
Boy this smooth. Its hoppy but the finish is rather abrupt. Mouthfeel is excellent. A little on the floral side which is a negative to me. Nice malt understones. This went down way too fast for a 6.9%er.

temporrari (389) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2006 Golden yellow. White head. Lots of hops. Aroma and flavor are dominated by them, of course. Very good IPA. Gotta get it fresh.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 An outstanding IPA. Very smooth with well blended flavors. Pours an enticing golden color, with a small white head. If you want to introduce someone to IPAs, this is the choice. Does not have as strong of a citrus aroma and bitterness as most IPAs. Also, the bitterness does not kick you in the back of the throat like some IPAs (not that that that is a bad thing, but it’s tough for a person new to IPAs to get used to). The bitterness kind of builds slowly to a crescendo, and then slowly fades. Great beer.

joshpiledean (316) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Re-rate 1/24/05 - Beautiful light amber pour with a small but long lasting head that leaves a good amount of lace. Strong hope nose, pine and floral hop bitterness. Wonderful body, not too thick or thin. Great hop profile, a very smooth hop bite and a long pleasing aftertaste, backed by a great malt body.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 19, 2004
Draft, Golden colored beer. Hops dominate the aroma and flavor. But I was surprised by the malt backbone in this one (I know it's Stone, but I thought I remembered less malt). There's also a little creaminess to this. Very good.

I prefer the Ruination, but this is quite excellent. Decent hop flavor. Expensive in my area though.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2004
22 oz bottle. Clear off yellow color with a lasting white head. Big hoppy aroma. Flavor is hoppy with a nice hop flavor/bitterness component. Extremely well made and drinkable.
