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: SEP 13, 2013 Refreshing although a little too sweet.. This is the go to IPA for all occasions although not my favorite style.

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2009 Piney/citrus hops dominate a bitter beer that doesn’t seem all that bitter thanks to the well-balanced body and clean finish. Great stuff.

gameface23 (131) - Haverhill, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2008 The best part of this beer was the smell. It smelled great with loads of hops, citrus (mostly grapefruit) and pine. The head was foamy and stayed for a little while. The flavor started off by showcasing the hoppy bitterness and then transitioned to somewhat of a malty sweetness with the slightest amount of coffee hints.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2005 Stone’s most enticing hop aroma delivers its promise to the very last dry-hopped drop! This is the best IPA I’ve tasted, with an equally beautiful pale malt finish brewed nearly to dryness. Having finally tasted the draft version at Dominion’s Beer Fest only increases my admiration. Stone has clearly mastered the art of hop extraction!

Bomber. Aroma is dominated by pine with some citrus notes. It’s similar to the pale ale, but stronger and sharper. Color is a clear blonde with a thin white head. Flavor is piney, sharply bitter, lasing into the finish--very one dimensional. Some warming. Overall, pretty disappointing beer. One dimensional, very light, bitter, lacking malt to balance and not nearly as much hop flavor as I’d like. This finished near the bottom of the pack in a blind tasting of 8 IPAs.

snowden719 (130) - USA - AUG 14, 2006
Pours golden orange witha medium white head that cascades well and doesn’t disapate much. Aroma is dominated by hops, mostly citrus, some pine, bit of caramel in the nose. Flavor starts off with a nice maltiness and moves to a ncie citric ending. Finish is shorter than I thought it would be, bitter, but not overly so.

Aesir (130) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 17, 2002
This is a really hoppy, really good beer. The initial flavor is good and finishes with a mouthful of hops. I say its a winner. Hopolicious.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Thick rocky head that disappears quite quickly. Pale golden color. Enormous amounts of lace on the glass. Looks like a traditional IPA. Smells of hops and sweet flowers, a nice balanced aroma. Hopped quite well with a suttle balance between the hops and the malts. I like the Ruination better. However, this is better than most IPA's on the market that I have had.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 a wonderful ipa. pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a quickly dissipating off-white head. hugely floral nose. clear hops with a bitter bitter aftertaste. a tad on the thin side, but overall a really great brew.

12 oz. bottle (2009) courtesy jbean. Beautiful, beautiful IPA. Hazy orange w/ a huge off-white head. Flowery cascade goodness and quite well-balanced to boot. Only marginally below the Two Hearted ale. Lovely.
