COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
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.

very little maltiness. a clean dry finish. Extremely close to being a double. piny citrusy hoppy. nice froathy head that gives way to lacing. Even if you don’t like IPA’s this beer is worth buying and just smelling it for hours.

12 oz. bottle...pours a very nice orange with a very thin white head...aroma was very floral, with nice hints of fruit as well as some pine...flavor was much of the same...one of the best IPAs I have had...was waiting to try and offering from Stone and I am glad I started with this one.

Pours a clear orange-gold with a moderate white head. Aroma of pine. Properly bitter, lively, good body. A very good, classic, hoppy IPA.

Pours a golden hue with very small head. Faint citrusy hop aroma. Grassy dank flavor with balanced hop bitterness that isn't overly bitter. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz. $3.49 from Bashas. Now this is an IPA! The Aroma knocks you down as soon as you pop the top. For the homebrewers here it like sticking your nose into a freshly opened bad of hops! Pour was a light golden color and the head was intense....too intense. Stong bitter hop flavor that did not dissapoint!

22 ounce bottle. Damn, this is a great beer! The pour delivered a glass of golden-yellow ale tinged with orange. A thick, foamy white head developed and stayed around. The lacing was very good. The aroma was rather complex. Primary aroma: fruity, citrusy. Secondary aromas: caramel, cherries, hint of cloves, hint of caraway seed. The taste just about knocked me out. There is a very bitter "kick" when the ale first meets tongue. The hoppy bitterness continues and finishes with another "kick" at the end. Primary flavor: grapefruit/orange citrus, that is well balanced between the two. Secondary flavors: caramel, slight lemon, slight floral. I will definitely be having a few more bottles of this in the near future.

22 oz. great hop aroma right from the start. crisp, fresh hop flavor, very citrusy/orange and somewhat sweet. slightly sticky mouthfeel, but smooth overall. One i could drink frequently.

lowgun1212 (109) - Carlstadt, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2008
honey gold color. thin head. nose isnt huge but pretty. flowers and vanilla. flavor is big but balanced. definitely a hoppy ipa but not obnoxious. grapefruit, blood orange, and vanilla is still there. mouth is crisp and light. dry finish whets the palate for more.

Nebulor (109) - , California, USA - FEB 17, 2009
Fresh hop aroma of mild pine, grapefruit and other florals with caramel malt in the background. Beautiful apple juice color with a copper hue and sediment particles are suspended. Lots of action with an off white head. Resin flavor of well balanced mild pine and fresh grapefruit with some sweet tea and caramel flavor in the background. Medium bodied, resinous, crisp carbonation, and has an alcohol warming throughout. A session IPA for hopheads very tasty and well balanced overall.

pours golden/amber yellow. nice white head that lasts. medium hoppy nose and pleasant complex floral aroma. this is very well balanced beer. there are so many IPAs out there that aren’t hopped appropriately.
