COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and youíll 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 beerís crisp and refreshing bitter character.

I love this beer. It has a big hop aroma which leads you into a crisp sharp hoppy elixir which is a feast for all your bitter taste buds. However they wonít be able to taste much afterwords :).

Huge hop nose - flowery and brightly fruity. While the hops are brilliantly exploding from the glass, the taste actually grooves into a sweet sugary cereal flavor. Nice balance and overall drinkability.

Pale golden color. Good white head. Aroma of hops, and then some. Brutally bitter and hoppy, but offset by a heavy, syrupy sweet body. Not as elegantly balanced as Ruination, but for being its kid brother, itís mighty hefty. You would never guess itís 6.9 ABV from the taste. Magnificent

fruity, hoppy, flowery, perfumy, Trix and Fruity Pebbles aroma with grassy hops and alcohol. Tons of carbonation.

Light straw-colored body with a rocky white head. Lacing by the ton as the head diminishes. Huge amounts of hops in the nose. Smells like fresh hops! Very floral aromas. A well-balanced IPA though. Just the right amount of bitter to balance the malt character. Smooth on the palate and the whole way down. I like this better than Ruination.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 3/3/12: Draught at TJís: Aroma of hops, citrus, resin. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Clear. Not sparkling. Lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, florals, 12/22/02: 10/4/10/5/19=4.8

Great pour: head and lacing is great. Very clear bronze with light carbonation visible. The aroma is good but surprisingly light given the strength of flavor. Rich and complex flavor leading to a long and changing finish.

Wow. By far the best IPA I have ever had. Superbly hoppy and very crisp with a slight sweetness in the middle. Not quite as knock you off your feet hoppy as I would have guessed - but thats a good thing.
