Oh you like Pine trees?? This IPA is the gold standard. It’s just perfect. Theres nothing here that an IPA lover would dislike. It has everything. Theres nothing else you can say about it. Resinous Pine, enamel melting, tones of tropical fruits just go apeshit as it warms up. It’s bitter as hell and you love it. This is a perfect IPA. It’s simple and delicious and I can and will drink this until I’m on the floor. Great stuff.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden with a thick lingering head. Immediate taste of thick crisp hops. Just the right amount of pine, with a long finish. Then the hops stay on your tongue when you breathe in.

It is a great beer. No doubt about it, but lack of body is a bit annoying. Color bit too light. Plane bitternes. And aroma is nothing memorable!

Pours a hazy gold with a med white head. Aroma is floral hops, peach, grapefruit, pine. Dry for an IPA which is actually quite nice, big big bitter hop throughout.. malt character keeps it light and slightly sweet. A classic.

Stone IPA is no doubt a classic craft. Just slight fresh hop aroma coming from this amber pour with a nice head. Taste is big malt character followed by the hops -- mostly pine notes -- and a bitterness that complements the flavor. Not much complexity, just a solid hop character. Finish is nice without a lot of lingering bitterness. Stone IPA definitely blazed a trail, but now have lots of competition. Still it is a nice quaff with dinner.
