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.

Aroma: gorgeous note of grain an hops, the closest thing you will you get to walking through fields of the stuff. Appearance: Bright Amber whit head Taste: Massive hops that slowly mellow out in to the very definition of an IPA, bitter and floral with a more sweet finish Palate: Substantial in all regards, a nice long finish Overall: Do you like beer? Yes? Have you found this one? Yes? Why are you not buying it?

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 The floral citrus bouquet in the aroma of this beer is laced with a touch of honey maltiness then the flavor takes over with pine and mango hoppiness balancing a biscuit maltiness. Well balanced finish.

What a terrific IPA! Out of a 12oz bottle, the hoppy aroma hits you instantaneously. The taste is very citrusy and extremely hoppy. The hops slam the back of your throat but in a very very good way. I really love this beer.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Bottle: Pours golden/light amber with medium size, long lasting white head with decent lacing. Aroma of piney grapefruity hoppy goodness. Medium body, well balanced bitterness. Very drinkable.

Dark orange/ medium yellow witha head that ends up coating about half of the beer to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is malty, kind of like sticking your nose into a bag of dried malt extract, but it also has that sting of hops there in the background. Taste is malty, but immediately goes to the hops and just lingers there on your tongue, producing an aftertaste of sweet, sweet hop goodness.

Stone’s India Pale is excellent. Definitely one of my favorites. If you’re feeling brave enough try Ruination

linkolnlogg (94) - your home, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Bottle to shaker (pounder). Pours out a pale gold colour with a light creamy white head with nice lacing. Scent is light earth and sweet floral hops. The hop is abruptly agressive and then quickly subsides to mild sweet hops. Taste is as above- abruptly aggressive hop elements with a grain element additionally intermixed. Mouthfeel is smooth and the finish is amazingly smooth if not a bit quick. A good brew overall but it unfortunately seems a bit short lived and relative to other stone brews slightly lacking in aggression.

Couleur Doré et clair. Arome de banane, poire, et ananas. L’amertume du houblon en bouche et coriace, mais tendre à la fois. Ensemble fruité, dont on ressent les agrumes, le pin et les épices. la finale sèche ressort une bonne amertume. Awesome IPA

Pours amber with a smooth head. Peppery hops. A lot of flavor but its dryness blocks out any complexity. Would like something a bit more zesty and fruity and maybe have the mice malt tastes shine a little bit brighter. Still a very decent beer. One for the hop heads!
