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.

Orange beer, nice head. Floral & citrus aroma slams you big time. The cascade hops rock this beer, with initial sweetness giving way to big bold bitterness all the way down. Good stuff, not for the faint of heart.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2002
Nice fluffy head. Excellent lace on the glass. Full bodied and very hoppy in all aspects. The brew reeks of PNW hops and lots of it. The beer has enough malt to avoid being hop-water. The malt and hops create an orange vanilla flavor that is good. Nice stuff.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - JUN 24, 2002
Re-Rate: Clear hop nose with citrus tones and an orange-amber color. Bright hop taste yet a full malt body that really supports and complements the bitterness well. Great balance and a great American IPA - love it!

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2002
indian corn golden orange color, clear as dappled light through a mountain stream. a big bubbled head was wet and evanescent, but did a winning song and dance before the curtain came up on the aroma. from an adequate malt foundation, the hops soar: cedar and lumber-mill piney; if hops bloomed big as roses they’d smell like this. through it emerges a subtle warm radiance of a cognac-like apertif. but @ 22 oz., plenty of time to savor and wax poetic, uttering unctious blandishments to the noble drink.

Never been an IPA fan, so I can’t say I cared for the hoppy aroma much at all. Nevertheless, I found it very fresh and drinkable.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 19, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 re-rate 6/28/2004. On draft at Goat Hill. This is still an excellent example of an IPA, but now that I've had a few hundred beers since then 6/19/2002 Excellent IPA. Great Aroma

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 This beer poured out a nice copperish gold color and formed a nice fairly white head, that when subsiding, left some nice lace. Aroma had elements of hops and some citrus. The taste had a substantial amount of hops and slightly bitter aspect to it, which is good in an IPA. Good beer
