COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
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.

Not a bad ipa but not my favorite. Very biting and grassy in taste. Okay. Not super impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2577) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Somehow hadn’t gotten around to this one. Sharp tangy grapefruit nose, some thick caramel behind, a bit of stinky fruit, too. Light copper/orange color, thin head, some lace. Tasty hopping right away, begins to balance in mid, but hops re-emerge, with a bit of burn in finish. Medium body, a bit of hop texture. Well, nothing is really outstanding, but somehow it all adds up. Pretty damn good (and I’m not a huge fan of the brewery, overall).

kjc51478 (440) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2015
12 oz bottle. Appearance is clear, pale amber color with light, creamy off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, with floral and alcohol notes. Taste is hop bitterness up front with flavors of grapefruit giving way to a subdued sweetness. Palate is light on the tongue, somewhat viscous texture, with a bitter finish.

dhatton (137) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Brilliant golden color, clear body, with ample fluffy white head. Sticky lacing as I progressed through the glass. Very fresh and aromatic...strong floral and citrus scents on the onset. Slightly peppery finish. Huge pine flavors with grapefruit and other citrus notes. Some bready biscuit flavors as well. Well-balanced with plenty of zip from the hoppy goodness.

Very good ipa. Stone knows how to do it. Citrus hop and caramel flavor. Great lacing on the glass. Nice bitter finish. Will get again.

A glowing, clear amber body supports a fading tight white head creating dense, intricate lace all around

Aromas and flavors display a lean, balanced glow of grass and pine, grapefruit and orange, pineapple, and honey on a silky smooth, lightly creamy, light plus body finishing and resonating with restrained malts, citrus and tropic heavy, pine and grass playing a supporting role, one of the best lean IPAs there is, which makes it one of my favorites

12oz bottle code ENJOY BY 03/04/15, 90 days from bottling puts this in early December, served at 45° into 14.7oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter followed by Spiegelau IPA glass

Boozy aroma with citrus notes. Clear amber colour. Tropical fruit notes, with caramel flavour; sustained bitter finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Quite a tasty beer.
