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.

Dark Amber Color, with a small white long head. Smells of cirtus and hops, floral. Medium bodies, Thick texture with medium carbonation and a metallic finish. Hops, Hints of citrus and malt. A whisper of pine. Excellent IPA.

Typical IPA nose of citrusy hops. Not overpowering but prominent enough that you know you’ve got an IPA in your hand. Some malt nose as well. I wish I could score the aroma higher but there just doesn’t seem to be a lot going on in the ol’ nose. Amber to dark yellow with off-white head. Thick lacing. Visually appealing. Kinda makes you anxious to have that first sip. Medium mouthfeel and a bit sharp. Perfect for a IPA! Ultimately delicious! Finishes with a quick, bracing bitterness that doesn’t last. Very drinkable and my favorite, everday IPA!

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 This is a damn good IPA. IPA’s are soon becoming one of my favorite styles of beers. This ale starts out with a stong aftertaste, but once you taste buds get acclamated then its smooooth sailing from here on in. This beer has a crisp beginning with a mildly bitter after taste. For the money there is no IPA better than this one. Go out and get it!

Gargoyles are cool. Hopped to near perfection. Beautiful amber coloring with huge creamy head. And best of all---behind the obligatory hops galore is a remarkable beer. A mouthful of malty cream that finishes with a distinct bitter edge.

Everything great in an IPA, this one has. My one complaint would be that the hop profile isn’t as complex as some other (newer) IPA’s, in that it is really all about the grapefruit with this one, whereas some styles present sweeter fruits (mango, peach) as well. Extra point overall for reasonable ABV for a session beer, minus point overall for relative expense.

Nice golden-orange with a good sized head. Very hoppy aroma.Tastes of citrus, pine, and a little sweetness. One of the best IPAs ever.

650 ml Bottle: Big head, strong hoppy aroma, bitter taste. I love amercian style IPA and Stone Brewing has to be one of the best.

Really good but expected a little more with the hype, expected it to be a little bolder, prefer SKA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
