Real killer stuff. Hardly ever do you get so much hoppy bitter in a beer so easily drinkable. Drinking this beer is like hanging out with Jackie Chan - dude is strong enough to kick your ass at any given moment, but he’s too cool to do you like that.

Bottle. Creamy light orange color with 1.5 finger white head that stays. Lacing. Aroma of sweet, flowery hops. Flavor had citrus and caramel notes along with a ton of hops. Palate was creamy and light with a dry finish. I was looking forward to this and it did not disappoint. Killer logo too!

The color is good. Great lacing. There was a keg of it for free, so I didn’t really have time to decide how good it is, I just kept on drinking.
There has to be ample hop content and that gets done.
One outstanding IPA.

I was excited for this one, as it was something I considered a classic IPA. Poured a beautiful golden color and gave that hopsy smell I love. Had a sip, wasn’t disappointed, but not blow off my feet either. A good IPA, but nothing to go wild over. A smooth drink, that I would buy again, but not get too excited about.

If you’re just starting out on IPA’s, I would suggest Stone. Just the right amount of bitterness and hops. Almost textbook of what a great American IPA should be Nothing too over or under powering. Even more crisp on tap, enjoy!

On tap-I live this beer in tap. Really is at the maximum of my hop preference. Very dry yet somehow refreshing. Stone is a great brewer.

What a great beer. Stone IPA presents with a golden amber color and a slight haze.An obvious hops aroma was present the minute the beer was poured. Despite the vast amount of hops this beer is incredibly well balanced.
