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.

This is my favorite IPA so far. Great hoppy flavor and aroma without the bitter aftertaste. A must try if you are an IPA fan.

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.

drawde (115) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Very golden, not much if any red. Long lasting head. Sweet, peachy smell and taste, even a little lemony. Smooth finish and not quite as bitter as many of its peers. A little alcohol warmth too. [Tasted next to a Bear Republic Racer 5] The Racer is more red color; more apiricot and pine flavor; and more bitter. The Stone is much sweeter, smoother, and lemony-peach.

Bottle. Light brown, clear pour, moderate head. Big floral hop aroma, with some citrus undertones. Grassy hop taste, with just a little fruit. Very hops, very bitter. very delicious. fantastic IPA. This beer defines what an IPA should be.

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - MAY 18, 2009
A hazy yellow ale with an airy white head. Citrus nose with some pine the malt aroma is hidden but there. The taste is hoppy with a good balance of malts. It is sweet and bitter, a good IPA. A strong medium body beer with a nice lingering hop taste. Overall a well balanced IPA.

illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2009
12oz bottle, liquid gold with a hint of orange color. Definitely a standard bearer for American IPAs - flawless balance, great hop bitterness, pine, caramel. Fantastic!

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Cask at the White Horse’s American Beer Festival 2009. What a perfect beer for the summer weather. As I sat in the sun I found the floral, pine and hops aroma thoroughly refreshing. Absolutely full of those classic IPA flavours: citrus, pine and a lasting bitter finish. Wonderful.

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.
