UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 big on hops, somewhat cloudy but rich and full of rich malty flavors. could use a little more hops in the aftertaste area. Nice smooth finish, as it warms becomes somewhat rich and full body. Very good beer to have stocked in the box.

Draft pint at Market Cross Pub in Carlisle, PA. IPA as it ought to be. Solid hops throughout. I like the carbonation as well. Do over... And over... And over!

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

Clear golden with about finger of white fluffy head. Aroma is fantastic! Hops, grapefruit, piney, dank, and some good sweetness. Taste follows the aroma almost perfect. The sweetness with the malt profile blend so great with the hops used. Nice bitterness and the piney resin left on the tongue is really nice! Overall; always a go to IPA. Cheers!

Bottle from father and sons. Poured into pint glass. Poured hazy golden with a slight white head. Piney grapefruit aroma. Very floral taste. Very drinkable IPA.

bottle. nice orange color with usual white head that lasts for awhile. full of hops, not overly bitter. well balanced beer that does not overwhelm in complexity of taste. good introductory i.p.a. for those discovering the micro’s.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear bright gold. Very fine white head settles to an incomplete cap leaving nice lacing.
Nice mix of bready and crackery malts provide a solid base for bright citric hops. Pretty classic AIPA here!
Bright and lively in the mouth. Medium body with excellent balance of malt and hops, both of which are distinctly American in character. Good length, ending with a snappy bitterness.
Carbonation is a little high, which dries the mouth, but that’s a niggle really. Very drinkable, and my favorite of the "standard" Stone offerings by far.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Golden in color with an off white head. Nose of hops. On the palate it is citrusy with a slight bitterness and is somewhat light for an IPA. Clean, crisp and refreshing with a bit of pine on the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 smells very much like centennial hops a little piney pretty good aroma. pours a nice color and tastes pretty balanced with the centennial hops coming through, the only thing i would say is that i’m not the biggest fan of centennial they just don’t have the kick.

Got a 22 oz bomber from my local liquor store. Stone IPA and Arrogant Bastard are the only 2 Stone brews available in Texas, so I tend to take these beers for granted.
Poured a 1 finger head into my imperial pint glass.
Color is light amber.
Aroma is floral citrusy, powerful for an IPA.
taste is just the right balance between maltiness and hop bite that I expect from an IPA.
Drinkability: I could drink a lot of this but I usually get a lower abv ipa for a session beer.
Extremely well balanced.
Stone, you haven’t let me down yet.
