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.

Pale, golden color. Slightly cloudy. Subtle maltiness but megga hoppy on the nose and palate.

Sweet, pleasant (not powerful) aroma with nice color and clarity. Has a nice balance between bitter and sweet (fruit) flavor. Personally, I would have toned down the maltiness of this IPA a bit , but that is a personal opinion. There is a definite orange/tangerine bent to the flavor of this beer. Hoppiness is there, but not as overpowering as some reviewers would suggest. For me, the sweetness of this beer was more prominent than it’s bitterness. It’s not my favorite IPA, but overall, a very good beer-- I definitely understand why this is such a highly rated beer.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 4, 2002
A darn good IPA. Solid hop backbone, but this beer is set apart by the malt character. Deep caramel and slightly roasted malt flavors really make this IPA worth drinking. The relationship between the hops and the malt -where some other IPA’s fall flat IMHO - make for solid mouthfeel. Another fine West Coast IPA

Typical west coast IPA - more hop character and fruitiness. A very special beer.

if you know what an IPA is, then you’ll love the hoppiness in this.

Hugerat99 (26) - USA - JAN 31, 2002
This is a truly fantastic IPA for those who love a strong, lasting hop presence, and at nearly 7% ABV it doesn’t lose any drinkability.

I guess I’ll be the only ’sissy’ reviewer. There comes a point where less is more. This beer is way past that point to my tastes.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2003 Cloudy gold color, medium head and lots of lacing. Piney hop aroma. Very bitter hop flavor and finish.

Orange colored. Sweet & malty. Huge flowery cascade aroma. A relatively well balanced hop monster.
