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.

Initial strong aroma of hops that settled down to a more subtle hop aroma after a minute. Poured with a golden color, and a frothy head that was still a half inch thick a few minutes after pouring. Very well-balanced flavor with a mellow hop bitterness and a good amount of hop flavor that melded very well with the malt backbone. Rich mouthfeel that felt almost creamy from the fine carbonation. The beer coated the mouth for several seconds after each sip. This evolved into a pleasantly ligering aftertaste that was a good mix of bitterness and hop flavor. This is an excellent, well-crafted beer.

Received courtesy of my friend Sal Paradise from hawkeyenation.com This is heaven. Perfect IPA. Two Hearted Ale is the best I can get around here, but this is better. Floral scent. Grapefruit and pine. Wish I could get this all the time here in St. Louis.

Bottle at MacNiven’s. Waitress poured and snuck down the side, so no head. Perfect golden body with perfect white lacing. Smelled very intense but not overwhelming. Lots of orange grapefruit and some pine. Excellent flavor with orange again present. Good bitterness lingers a moderate time and is very well balanced. Thin bodied, but not watery. A little soft, but not fizzy. Very good.

Pours orangish, with fluffy head, that falls to a small lasting head, oroma is citrus and pine hops, the flavor is also citrus and pine, with some maltyiness, this is a really good IPA, its not as intense as others, but that can be a good thing

Aroma is caramel, grapefruit and general citrus. Well balanced sweet and bitter flavors. Wish I had paid more attention, but knew it was a fantastic IPA at the first sip.

Wow. I consider myself relatively new to craft beer and thought that dogfish head IPAs were the undisputed IPA champs. This beer is damn good. Pours a nice pale amber color. STINKS of citrus and hops. You can taste amazing citrusy lemon as soon as you take it into your mouth (giggity). One of the best upset it took me so long to try this

Excellente IPA pour ceux qui aime le style très tranchant et belle amertume. Très bien équilibrée. Belle arôme. On sent plus que bien les 90 IBUs. J’ai adoré cette IPA, un classique.

Bottle. Poured a clear, yellow/orange color with a long lasting, white head. Hoppy aroma with slight citrus and floral scents. Light body with a thin, slightly oily texture. I truely enjoyed this beer and would definately recommend it to others and drink again. I enjoyed the very slight citrus flavor and was very pleased with the just the second Stone beer that I have tried. This beer gets better with every swallow.

Nice dark golden colored beer that gives off plenty of aroma of flowers and hops.. tastes spicy and bitter with a biting flavor that ends with notes of citrus...
