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.

Fantastic, especially if fresh. Piney and resiny in the aroma and taste. The ultimate in available west coast IPAs.

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Orange amber hue, grapefruit, citrus & resin profile. Perfume, herb, caramel malt nose. Crisp and acceptably bitter finish. Again, agree with Pipper, not my favorite IPA but its a decent one.
Sampled at Rozi’s Wine & Liquor, Stone Tasting Event, Lakewood, OH.

HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 4, 2011
This is a classic San Diego IPA. It is crisp and refreshing and has a very good hop profile.great for everyday drinking without draining your bank account. It pours a light golden color with a 1 finger head with decent lacing. Smells are all hops with a little malt. Taste is bitter and hoppy with a little malt flavor just as you’d expect. It has a clean and dry mouth feel at the same time. Overall, like I said it isn’t going to make you drool for more but it is a great goto especially at bars that have bud, coors, miller, bluemoon, and stone ipa. Can’t go wrong with it in that situation...

porkdiggity (108) - Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Great example of a West Coast IPA. Pours a hazy gold, with moderate head. Immediate taste of resin and pine followed quickly by grapefruit bitterness and a touch of sweetness to finish it up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Medium hoppy citrus and pine aroma. Cloudy orange color with substantial white head and persistent lacing. Medium bitter start and long bitter finish. Medium body and creamy texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark golden ipa with a lovely fresh pine aroma. Citrous fruity flavour, with a very bitter aftertaste. For my taste a little too bitter, but a high quality beer with distinctive character

ksigty (107) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2007
A fantastic IPA. This beer has plenty of bite that goes great with just about any meail It reaks of malt and hops and the taste confirms it. For a "basic" IPA this ranks near the top.

hawkshadow (107) - Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2009
I got this on tap at Lucky Pub in Marion, VA. I was getting growlers of dogfish 60 minute. I tried this at the same time and boy was I surprised. The Stone blew away the Dogfish 60 minute in every way. Scent, flavor, color and palate. I will never waste money on Dogfish Head 60 minute again!

Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Poured a bright gold with a thin white head and lively carbonation. Bold, sweet hoppy aroma. Strong citrus flavour, very bitter middle and finish. Moderate lacing. Overly bitter for my taste.

One awesome IPA, this is what beer drinking is all about. Copper colored with a hoppy, hoppy nose and flavor, just damn good!
