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.

Gusler calls this beer ’Quite sniffable’, let me take it a step further, remember the show ’I dream of Genie’? If I were to live in a bottle, this would be it! The hop aroma is incredible, I wouldn’t care if this beer were purple, I’d still love it A great flavor to match, just enough malts to smooth out this liquid ode to hop heads

This is a really hoppy, really good beer. The initial flavor is good and finishes with a mouthful of hops. I say its a winner. Hopolicious.

aracauna (3087) - Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2002
I probably should have drank this first. It seems almost boring after the Ruination. Less floral than Ruination, with an intense smell of a christmas tree sap. Smell almost gives me a headache. Stone makes pretty beers and this is one of them. Good head with nice retention, good color. Flavor is surpisingly malty, nutty. Hops strong from the beginning and very short finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2002
Re-Rate 07/11/02: Pours a clear amber, generous off white head and sheets of lace. Nose is floral, citrus, hints of malt and ’Quite Sniffable’. Front is malt and lightly sweet, the top is light to medium, the finish is ’A Hop Heads Delight’, dry, acidic and still a top 5 IPA on my ’Master List’.

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.

Very bitter IPA with excellent malt balance. Citrusy and delicious.

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!

Nice red amber beer with a fruity and very hoppy taste and fullmouth aroma. Very refreshing beer.
