3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
HOPS!! This beer is full of it, the flavor of the hops is almost overwhelming, but very tasty. Don’t drink too much or you’ll be sorry!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy amber with tan head and trace lacing. Don’t know what happened to the IBUs -- this beer is dominated by the hop aroma but I found the bitterness somewhat lacking. Citrus and pine flavors are dominant but the aftertaste reminded me of pickles (and yes, maybe a touch of strawberry). I found the beer to be quite overcarbonated which does it a disservice by bringing out some of the less pleasant aftertaste notes.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 big on hops, somewhat cloudy but rich and full of rich malty flavors. could use a little more hops in the aftertaste area. Nice smooth finish, as it warms becomes somewhat rich and full body. Very good beer to have stocked in the box.

Draft pint at Market Cross Pub in Carlisle, PA. IPA as it ought to be. Solid hops throughout. I like the carbonation as well. Do over... And over... And over!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden with about finger of white fluffy head. Aroma is fantastic! Hops, grapefruit, piney, dank, and some good sweetness. Taste follows the aroma almost perfect. The sweetness with the malt profile blend so great with the hops used. Nice bitterness and the piney resin left on the tongue is really nice! Overall; always a go to IPA. Cheers!

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 smells very much like centennial hops a little piney pretty good aroma. pours a nice color and tastes pretty balanced with the centennial hops coming through, the only thing i would say is that i’m not the biggest fan of centennial they just don’t have the kick.

bottle. nice orange color with usual white head that lasts for awhile. full of hops, not overly bitter. well balanced beer that does not overwhelm in complexity of taste. good introductory i.p.a. for those discovering the micro’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear bright gold. Very fine white head settles to an incomplete cap leaving nice lacing.
Nice mix of bready and crackery malts provide a solid base for bright citric hops. Pretty classic AIPA here!
Bright and lively in the mouth. Medium body with excellent balance of malt and hops, both of which are distinctly American in character. Good length, ending with a snappy bitterness.
Carbonation is a little high, which dries the mouth, but that’s a niggle really. Very drinkable, and my favorite of the "standard" Stone offerings by far.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Golden in color with an off white head. Nose of hops. On the palate it is citrusy with a slight bitterness and is somewhat light for an IPA. Clean, crisp and refreshing with a bit of pine on the finish.
