By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2004 One of my favorite IPA's. I like the hops and expect it in an IPA. I will go elsewhere for malt. That said, this beer is not ALL hops - in the end it measures out quite nicely.

First thing that hits you is the wonderfully powerful aroma, very citrusy and sweet. Then, the flavor, hoppy and bitter but very well balanced with a nice buttery caramel front and the hops slowly exploding as it goes down. My first Stone, after reading about it for a year on the site, and Iím not disappointed; now if only we could get more than the couple currently available in New England? Hmmm? Greg??

A nice IPA. About as bitter as you can get before imbalance sets in. Nice body, good head. Some caramel notes along with the requisite spicy, citrus, grapefruit.

Nice bite! Great for an IPA - maybe the best Iíve had (Iíll have to check the old records). Great bitter biting hops.

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. I didnít think this stacked up to Ruination but it is still a contender. Dry, biting hops keep it interesting but it is still easy to drink. Keep íem coming Stone!

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2003 Upon uncapping the bottle, the smell of Cascade hops fills the room. It pours a medium golden color with a decent puffy head. Lots of aromatics and sweet malt mix together with a generous amount of hops to give this brew tremendous flavor and drinkability. Sweet malty body is well balanced with the perfect amount of citrusy hops. I just wish I could get more of this stuff around here. Thanks jcalabre.

This is a great IPA but itís definitely for the experienced American IPA drinker. Brits wouldnít enjoy this beer because it is too far over the top for a Britís idea of an IPA. Here in the U.S. we love IPAs as hoppy as we can get them and among American IPAs, this one is damn good.

What a great ALE. From the aroma to the texture, a classic. One of the best mouth feels on a beer that Iíve had in a long time.

Deep golden color with a a lemon citrus nose. Bold hops, very nice. Stone Rocks!
