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.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2003 12 oz. bottle Stone scores again (surprised?) with this fist-sized cousin to the beautiful 22 oz. works of art we all know and love, or should. Don't make the mistake of drinking this out of the bottle, though - there's a big beer inside of there, with an assertive hop character and brilliant, clear golden hue. A worthy IPA, and less intimidating than it's brethren.

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

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2015
12fl oz bottle pours a clear mid amber with a good off white head that lasts. Aroma is tropical fruit syrup, grapefruit, mango and pineapple. Mouthwatering nose! Taste is great with over ripe pineapple and big honeydew melon and some sticky caramel. Lovely, surprisingly thick mouth feel and a big hoppy, resinous, pine sappy, bitter finish. Excellent IPA.

This is a very good IPA. I didn’t really care for on first taste, but as the glass went on it seem to get better. Clear rich golden color.

This was my first IPA and this made quite an impression. Strong aroma of hops. I like the pour, a bright orangish, amber color with an off-white head that diminished to a decent lacing. Someone described the taste as lemony, and I guess that about hits the main notes of this beer’s flavor. I wasn’t crazy about it at first, but as I got towards the end of my bottle, I quite enjoyed it. And although the alchohol is not prevalent in the taste, I was feeling it pretty strongly by the end of the pint and a half.

After chasing 3 kids around Sea World on a warmer than normal October day, I came home to this, and wow did it hit the spot. Hops, hops hops! Citrus aroma, golden color, very bitter, and the alcohol is well-hidden. An excellent IPA, my favorite.

Good IPA. Pours gold with an average sized white head. Lively carbonation. Starts slightly sweet with a nice bitter finish. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Bitter, but still smooth. Hoppy, but not overly so. If your preference is an insanely hoppy and floral IPA, there are other beers to try.

AlephNull3 (114) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Very good IPA. Light poor with small frothy head. Very crisp taste of toasted hops. Best if slowly consumed so thegreat taste of hops can satisfy your palate.Highly ranked IPA for all beer lovers, but espically the IPA enthausist.
