22oz. bomber poured into pint glass. Clear light golden color with creamy, fluffy and sticky white head that lasted forever! An excellent presentation. This is a hop beast with hop aroma all over and bitter taste to perfection with nice malt balance to the finish. Big, smooth and creamy body. This is IPA - WANT HOPS!

Touch of cloudiness and a thin head. The aroma is not quite as full as I anticipated but there is definitely a noted floral hoppiness as is to be expected. The body is creamy and medium. The taste really makes up for any flaws. Bitter hops with a fruity sweetness on the side.

From bottle. Balanced tasty ipa, enjoyable and sessionable without being an absolute standout. A fine import beer Iíd recommend it.

This one has seen better days. Not bad, but much better on the other side of the Pacific. Iíd imagine.

Stone India Pale Ale is one amazing brew. it pours out a moderately clear golden tint with a small white head with slight lacing. The aroma smells strongly of hops which is definitely expected considering the type of beer. A slight malt aroma is also present but plays a secondary role to the hops. The flavor is tiered. It begins with a malt flavor, moderately sweet that quickly gets passed up by the bite of the hops. Itís a pretty floral beer and it works well with the light body. It all works together it create and strongly flavored IPA with a great bitter bite throughout. Great brew.

Without a doubt the Hoppiest beer Iíve ever had. I knew right after that moment that it would be ranked really highly on this site. It was a little too much for me, but it definitely wasnít bad, Iíd like to try it again one day.

i have slowly become a lover of beers that are íover the topí hoppy. this one may be the best of the bunch so far. Just picked up a sixer and the first two went down deliciously. The sizzle on the tongue from the hops is unmistakeable. Nothing about the look is going to warn you about the big character taste you get from this beer. I canít wait to quit typing so I can pour another.

This brew is strong yet refreshing, crisp and hoppy. The hops triggered a response from my parietal glands. As my salivary glands started to spam, my ears and sinuses reacted in kind. This brew is phenomenal. It is not for those that proclaim patronage to the non-bitter beer institute. As the good book says, donít cast pearls before swine. This beer is for the conesuer, for one who appreciates perfection. California ales are definitely leading the way for these hop righteous brews. Stone and a few others are defining the new era in IPA brewskies!
