COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of Stone IPA! "Dry-hopped" for an extra two weeks, this unique process gives our IPA its bountiful hop aroma and rich hop flavor. A full 70+ IBUs (International Bitterness Units) creates this beer’s crisp and refreshing bitter character.

Nice appearans, have 12 beers left of an total of 48, so it is a nice beer to always have in the fridge. Saw it on yesterdays episode of weeds and it gave me the fever for drinking one!

Great Great IPA, I’m not a huge IPA fan, but this one def rises above many others that I’ve had. Its got a fresh hoppy aroma and great deep golden appearance. The burst of hop flavor is smoothed by a citrus aftertaste. Very drinkable!!

Mat yellow colour, slightly hazy with medium head. Smell of pine, grass and some malts. Taste is nicely bitter, pungent but not overdone, citrus, pine, grass with a hint of sweetness and a malty aftertaste of bread. Palate is dry. I really like this.

Finally got to try some off the tap after consuming countless bombers. Hazy orange body with foamy off-white head. Full floral nose with plenty of citrus and pine. Hops overpower, but don't dominate the smooth malt flavors from initial taste to finish. The standard-bearer of IPAs deserves all of the praise it gets.

Close to my ideal beer. Sampled on draught at Tria in Philadelphia, PA, which incidentally is a GREAT beer bar and well worth a trip. Big rocky white head tops a pale, clear, slightly orange body. Huge hop nose, very flowery. Initial sip knocks you back with bitterness but subsequently sips reveal a subtle complexity. Stone managed to get the right balance between maltiness and hoppiness. The resut is a full bodied beer that just seems right. Very refreshing and thirst quenching, although a bit too high in alcohol to be my session beer.....

Poured amber with a slight haze. Small white head with lots of lacing. Huge hop aroma and flavor. A highly sessionable IPA. One of the west coast greats. REPRESENT!

22oz bottle. golden orange with a decent cream head that dissipates leaving traces on the glass. Aroma is very hoppy with a hint of wood. Taste is full of hops with a grapefruit bitterness. Finishes dry with no excessively bitte aftertaste, just a hint of that grapefruit..

Mild aroma compared to most ipas. Flavor is nothing to write home about. Hazy brown orange hue. Its an IPA and that’s about it.
