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.

Large olfactory presence. Rich, citrusy-fruity, & juicy malt characteristics. Well balanced and very tasty. Mouthwatering hop flavors complement the malty aroma. Malt flavors reminded me of some IPAs I had in Canada; had a round, "fruitiness" to it. Lingering sweetness plays in the mouth.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2002
Sweet, floral, citrus aroma. Sweet, hoppy flavor at the start, tastes and smells like unfermented wort. Crisp, bitter, hoppy finish. Not as good as the Ruination IPA, but still better than most others.

Very hoppy, although surprisingly not too much that it is overpowering. Citrus/floral aroma and citrus and hop flavor with a nice bitter finish. Malts were still somewhat detectable as not to make this too one dimensional.

Holy Hoppiness Batman! Sit down and hold on if your cracking open a beautiful bottle of Stone’s India Pale Ale because your palate is in order for a rude awakening. Definitely citrusy/flowery taste..defined best by my friend as "liquid weed." I’m not much of the hop craver myself, but this was a nice treat for my taste buds. Wonderful aroma, striking taste, and long lasting aftertaste. A good IPA to pick up if you have the time!!!

A pure citrus and hop amalgamation wafts over a crystal clear golden amber lake. The foam scribes angry dragons and monsters down the glass. Encroaching malt sweetness harmonizes with a brazen bitter. This is a classic. I keep coming back to it, and never tire of the senses it spins.

Strong, citrusy. Some sourness in the aftertaste. Some pine thruogh the nose as well. Could use a little more carbonation out of the bottle.

Just like me in the midst of a wild and crazy round of drunken hopscotch, this beer is HOPPY. Very crisp, bitter finish. I can understand how past raters have claimed its somewhat acidic, with an almost medicinal quality at times.. but still, a great beer. Those 70 IBU’s hit your palate like a fat girl crashing a tricycle.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 This beer does a breakdance in your mouth. The flavors are bold and bitter. Seems well crafted.
