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.

Bottle poured a lightly hazed orange hue w/ medium thick white lasting head and sticky lacing. Big sweet hop aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are straw, pine, grass, and grapefruit. Medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose of the beer contains rich floral and citrus aromas. In the glass is a vision of delightful opaque copper. Flavor starts with a touch of blonde grain. Then a large, long lasting, multidimensional voyage of hops with the best characteristic of flavor profiles they can impart. The beer is a hop lover’s dream. This is the Cadillac of IPAs.

Pours golden with small white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, caramel malt, some pine, earthy, spicy notes. Textbook balance of bitter grapefruit and caramel malt. Some earthy bitterness swarms and strangles. Long bitter finish. If your IPA preference is for conservative tasting, but bitter, beer this is the one for you.

Franzen (315) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Faint hop aroma, mainly mango, probably a bit to old. Golden clear, white head. Really bitter, just enough maltiness to back up the bitterness without beeing noticed. Light body average carbonation. Nice taste but could have done with more aroma, probably lacks due to age

Flaske, 65 cl. Ravgylden, lavt off-white skum. Dufter af mos, grćs, pot, urter. Ikke sĺ frugtig. Gummi. Třr. Karamel. Maltfylde. Udtřrrende og bitter, men ikke for bitter. Lćkker. Balanceret. Og herligt fri for tropisk frugt-duftende mode-humle.

One of my favourite IPA’s. However I read that the brewery bullied a small CO brewery named Kettle and Stone for using Stone in their name. This may put this beer on my forbidden list. Using hot stones for brewing is an old method that is still in use. STONE can therefore not be registered as a single brewery’s name!

The last of the 1,000+ ratings Stone beers I’ve had many times before but never rated ! Keg at Stone Brewing San Diego Airport, 22/04/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains well. Nose is bitter citrics, juicy hops, bitter orange, grass, grapefruit. Taste is more agressive than the aroma suggests, bitter hops, grapefrit, light pine, toasted bread, orange pith, grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressve hop bitterness in the close. Well balanced easy drinking IPA.

Nice golden colour...white head that sticks. Pine and citrus aroma. Nice hoppy flavour and a bitter finish that goes on and on.

Ez volt a legzsírabb sör, amit valaha ittam. Jó nem vagyok még túl öreg, jön még a folytatás. Nagyon frissítő, igazi sörkülönlegesség, színe, mint a sárkány aranya és enyhén citrusos mellékíze jól oltja a szomjat. The BEST!

Tasted from bottle. Pours pale cloudy yellow with fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Huge aroma. Big time citrus notes of grapefruit, orange, mango with some pine aroma as well. More citrus dominated hops also come through on the taste. Very nice crisp clean bitterness throughout. Love the citrus flavor. Very smooth with little bite at the end. Very drinkable. Excellent IPA. Definitely a top tier beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
