COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and youíll 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 beerís crisp and refreshing bitter character.

Good beer, although I am not a big hophead. The hop and malt aroma was great. The beer is crisp with lots of bitterness which lasts way after finishing the beer.

She a beauty! On tap @ Bardenay Boise for ever! Maybe. Maybe not. Any way the sales donít lie. When this beer is on the rotating IPA handle it sells twice as fast as Bridgeport, Full Sail, Lagunitas, Elysian, Fishtale or Haleís. Stone rules and if you donít agree u r in the minority. By the way....Great IPA.

Just like me in the midst of a wild and crazy round of drunken hopscotch, this beer is HOPPY. Very crisp, bitter finish. I can understand how past raters have claimed its somewhat acidic, with an almost medicinal quality at times.. but still, a great beer. Those 70 IBUís hit your palate like a fat girl crashing a tricycle.

Very nice, Very clean IPA flavor. not as overpowering flavor-wise as some of the other offerings from Stone Brewing. This IPA has a nice crisp flavor, and it does not linger and burn your mouth like some of the super steriod-laden IPAs created for mere shock value.

Never been an IPA fan, so I canít say I cared for the hoppy aroma much at all. Nevertheless, I found it very fresh and drinkable.

The best beer Iíve had in years. I get it in the 22oz bottle. I savor every drop. Crisp and fresh. Great color. Slight citrus odor.

Great brew. This is my standard IPA. Easy drinking at a relatively high %. Hops, malts, but they are overbearing this beer can be drank fast.

Enjoyable floral hops aroma and spicy citrus flavor. Watery compared to the Ruination. I enjoyed it, itís really a good IPA, but I was not impressed quite like the other Stone brews Iíve had.

Very rich, creamy head. Lively carbonation which helps maintain the head. Bitter aroma with strong note of dank hops. Clean, pure medium amber color. Very refreshing IPA. Strength of hops is well-balanced with the alcohol content. The palate doesnít dull your senses by the end of the glass. One of the best in the IPA category. Exceptionally solid.

Smooth. Perfect hops. Amazing palate. By far a superior IPA. Color is amber with plenty of head
