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.

Wow. If you like hops and thats all you like, than this is the beer for you. It’s a very nice golden color with heavy white head that lasts. The aroma and taste is nothing but hops and pine. Very true to the cascade hops, however, it lacks on the complexity of the taste. While I love hops, there still needs to be some undertones of citrus which I’m not getting at all. Not overwhelmingly bitter, but what you could expect at 70 BIU’s. Overall, a very good cascade hops IPA and definitely worth trying.

1" pure white thick head that lasts for ever with very thick lacing, that lasted at the top of the glass when the glass was empty. Crystal clear golden-ornage color. Citrus, particularily orange, and pine aroma. Lots of hop flavor with a good malt backbone. Medium-light mouthfeel with good carbonation, nice bitter bite on the back and outside of my tongue. I like this beer a lot though its not my favorite IPA.

Una de las razones por las cuales cruzar de México a Estados Unidos el mejor IPA que he probado sin contar el de fullers, mi primo dice que Ruination es muchas veces mejor, así que espero probarlo algún dia.

Good beer. Your basic recipe for a good IPA Stone style. Perfect beer to have stocked in the fridge so you can have a good beer when doing yard work or some other manly project. ---Crozier

After many years of searching I have found the perfect IPA. Hoppy, Dry, Powerful but really easy to drink. Outstanding with Italian food. Great with everything else, even Ice cream. It is really easy to consume more than is safe.

Guitarsessions (21) - Crestline, California, USA - JAN 30, 2005
First IPA. Pours into a light amber. Foamy head that is gone after a few sips. Nice bitter hoppy flavor. Very nice. Not a mouth feel I like... but it is ok. All in all... a good beer.

isamublue (21) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - MAY 2, 2006
12 oz bottle. Excellent amber color. Floral and hoppy aroma. I found the floral overtones a bit too overwhelming. Not my favorite IPA, but still a darn good beer.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Possibly the most unique "single" IPA. The aroma and flavor are the most flowery of any IPA I’ve tried. It also has a crispness not apparent in most IPA’s. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first, but by the end of my first one, I was hooked.
