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.

Samuel214 (495) - SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Burk från SB. Tjusigt klar bärnstensfärgad vätska med högt fluffigt vitt skum som ger lite rester längs kanterna. I doften fräsch citrus; mandarin, apelsin, grape, lime, citrusskal, lite brödiga toner, lite tropiska inslag, granskott och en gnutta kåda. Fina, färska humletoner. Mellanstor kropp, åt det något större hållet. Fin, len munkänsla. Något klibbig. En något maltig bas bär upp humlet fint. Nära doften i smaken. Beskan är där från början och är påtaglig, men håller sig ändå väl på sin plats. Väldigt drickbar och lätt att få ner ett par stycken av. Stilren, enkel IPA som håller ihop väldigt snyggt. Mycket gott! Prisvärd dessutom.

Pours a clean golden color with medium white head. Aroma was a little let down at the beginning, not much going on but after a while, citrus, pine and bread stanted out. Taste was more inense, citrusy, piney, biscuity, grapefruity and slightly tropical, with a strong bitterness on the aftertaste.

Estebanik (715) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Wersja z Berlina. Piana ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat chmielowy, owocowy, aczkolwiek niezbyt rześki. Jest w nim coś takiego średnio fajnego, nie potrafię określić co. W smaku wytrawne, owocowe z mocną, nie do końca przyjemną goryczką. Nawet lekko herbaciane się robi po ogrzaniu. Jest poprawnie, no ale kurwa, od Stone wymaga się chyba trochę więcej.

Lawger (267) - SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2016
Fresh can from Stone Germany. Pours a clear, dark gold with white head. Something didn’t feel quite right about this from the start, it was very musty and mostly lacked the fruitiness and freshness one normally associates with a west coast IPA. Luckily, the initial aromas soon gave way to more tropical fruit scents of apricots and mango, I slight toffee hint, some wet wool, resiny hops and a hint of sweet red licorice. The palate is medium bodied with balanced sweetness and a very long, growing bitterness that coates the tongue nicely.

gr_pa (369) - siemianowice, POLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Golden, perfectly clear, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: tropical fruits, citrous, caramel, bit malty. Medium to high sweetness, full body. Lots of hoppy fruits, some malts and sweetness, but everything is just background for heavy to medium bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Burk från SB. Bärnstensfärgad med vit skumkrona. Söt frukt doft. Mediumsöt och besk kropp. Smak av knäck, ananas, tall, bränt socker och grapefrukt. Bra efterbeska.

UjoKlobasa (545) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 8, 2016
Berlin can. Golden color with a tin of amber, clear liquid, white head. Smell of vegetable. Aroma of lager, earth, zest. Harsh bitter. Long bitter finish. Alcohol is hidden. Nice touch of the beer history, but today’s brews are somewhere else. Still great though.
