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 was very nice. Very well balanced and smooth. Beautiful in the glass. Citrusy, green fresh aroma - hint of malt. Nice hop finish. Thanks again to Fly :)

Spectacular beer. Pours copper, with a thin head. The aroma is of citrus and hops, with a hint of flowers. The flavor is the perfect combination of hops. Bravo. I liked this better than the Ruination, and its available in a six pack.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Hoppy as can be. Reminded me of ginger, pepper, lemon grass. very rich and drinkable. Have to add a caveat to this beer: because of its extreme hoppy-ness, your breath will smell "beery" for much longer than you think, as I found out even after a very thorough floss and brushing!

leninthedesert (116) - Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Lovely, hoppy aroma...very open and clean. Appears coppery-gold with a slight haze. Taste is bittery-floral - opens into a perfume-bitter arrangement...dries out on the palate to finish smoothly. Great beer...incredibly complex IPA.

I’m surprised by the 100 rating on this beer. It is definitely lacking on the hop front. Smooth but as their signature IPA it should have plenty of hops.

Dastrn (115) - Warsaw, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2008
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.

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.

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2003
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.
