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.

12 oz bottle poured a golden orange with a little head. Aroma is super citrusy and amazing. Taste is a hop blast of flavor. Lots of citrus and pine, kinda sticky mouth feel. Long bitter aftertaste. What an awesome IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2004 All Stone IPA variants rule, but their standard IPA is the best. Strong, complex hops are supported by a surprisingly good malt backbone throughout. Every aspect of the profile has been addressed in a masterful way. Stone's cheesy marketing campaign is completely blown away by the very high quality of this brew. One of the top IPA's of all time..... immensely excellent.

A little bit of a light color to it with a nice head. Great bite on the hop flavor, really nice IPA!!

12 oz bottle poured into a short wine glass. Aroma is of pine and citrus. You can just smell the hops bursting out of this one. The color is a light orange and the head is medium to light. This beer is one of the best tasting IPA's I've ever had. Grapefruit and citrus with a long lasting and deliciously smooth palate afterwards. Love this ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted: draft at Stokesay Castle , Reading , Pa. Orange, yellow color. Solid 2 finger head that lasts. Aroma of grassy hops and some citrus fruit. A very pleasant hoppy aroma. Taste is awesome. Starts with the citrus flavor ( apricot, pineapple) and moves to the light caramel of the body. Finishes with a grassy/ piney hop with a touch of lasting citrus. This beer is mega hopped but balanced nicely. Medium body and carbonation. The various hops work well together. A hoppy muddle masterpiece. Great beer.

Positively glows golden with a nice foamy head. Plenty of resiny hops on the nose. The hops make their presence known pretty quickly, the caramel malt quickly gives way to the hops that take you to the finish. Medium bodied.

Day 3 of my IPA Advent calendar. Bottle rating. Much better on tap. I love Stone but in a month of IPA drinking this didn't hold up in uniqueness and felt tamer than I recall on tap. I plan to re-do this as it seems odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NathanJ (42) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 1pint 6 oz. bottle poured orange/amber with lively carbonation and an off white head. Sweet flowers and sugar aroma, generous hop bite and bitterness with an awesome floral taste. hides the alcohol well except for a warming in the back of your throat and the buzz at the end of the bottle :). very nice

Small white head with a clear light orangeish body. Lovely hoppy aroma, citrusy with a hint of pine. Nice bitter flavor.

This appeared a lot lighter in the glass then I had expected, but was still a nice pale gold colour. The head was a healthy 3 fingers of cloud-like creamy texture. The lacing coated the glass, to where it was opaque - cool. Smell, oh, the smell. Grapefruit citrus, and pine hops, all in attendance, right where they should be, which follow through to shine in the taste. Firm body, nice balance, sufficient carbonation, dry - can a big IPA like this be called silky smooth?
