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.

Slightly hazy amber body, medium sized frothy white head. Aroma abounds with hops; piney, resiny, delicious hops. Flavor is the same, big citrus notes and lots of sticky hops. This is backed up by a sweet malty backbone and it finishes dry and peppery. I’m so glad I finally got my hands on some Stone brews! Even my girlfriend loved it and she’s normally not an IPA fan at all.

Too a trip to Dallas and had the chance to pick this brew that is unavailble to us in Fl. The aroma was as hoppy as I have ever had and the finish is dry and bitter. Good beer if this is your style

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 As far as an IPA goes, this is perfection. Pours a perfect amber color with a great white head that lasts long and it leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is filled with hops. Taste is slightly sweet at first then ends with a nice light bitterness. Very smooth and creamy. Great brew.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 mmmmm...hops. It is a clear rich gold poor with a nice white head. Very nice citrusy, floral hops in the aroma. Oh, but the hops are a powerful (and pleasureable) presence. Slight malty sweetness help balance those oh so lovely biting hops. I really love this one and would have it again in a heart beat.

Jayb0 (1122) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 Very bold and fruity but a bit creamier than most IPA’s. A very good offering. I hope to find more Stone IPA variations to compare against. 3/15 Years later this really is still a Benchmark American IPA, less fruity than mAny, hop forward and has some weight. Great Malt balance, even some subtle chocolate for me.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Pours golden clear with a small white head. Aroma is pure hops as expected, but this one does not impress me. Grapefruit rind and hops in the taste. Good, but not great.

Radek Kliber (6890) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 22, 2004
True IPA aroma, hoppy nose, very refreshing. Gold, small bubbles, small but long lasting lace. Bitter at front, medium full body. Crisp, refreshing, great for session time. Very nice but you can find more refined competitors IPA around.

GregClow (3042) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2004
Golden-orange colour with a decent white head. Aroma is big and hoppy and flowery. Flavour of hops, hops and more hops, with enough malty sweetness to keep it in line. My first Stone beer, and it was pretty much what I expected - hoppy and good.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2004
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.
