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...

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.

Great pour: head and lacing is great. Very clear bronze with light carbonation visible. The aroma is good but surprisingly light given the strength of flavor. Rich and complex flavor leading to a long and changing finish.

Tastebuds got smacked up by this one. It was a bit too bitter for me, and I seriously didn’t realize this was 6.9% ABV when I had it off the tap.

Stone IPA poured a hazy gold from the bottle with a decent white head. The hops come through nicely in this beer and I noted scents of pine. There is a balanced bitterness in this beer and as I got further along in my drink I started to pick up notes of butter. This IPA finised smooth with a nice mouthfeel.

Golden brown, some nice sediment floating around with a one finger head. Looks like it will lace nicely. The smell has a strong floral scent, with some fruity and hoppy undertones. Bitter up front, which follows with sweet and malty flavors. Very light carbonation and goes down smooth. I can see why the reviews are so good, it's a great beer.

Good in the bottle. Better on tap at the brewery. Tastes of grapefruit and hops. Head with plenty of white foam. Orange color.

Stone is consistent. I have been drinking their IPA for many years and cannot notice any change. There might be one or two brews out there to offer a challenge, but for the price, this is my staple IPA. Pour, head, aroma, fllavor, mouthfeel, finish are all top notch. I sure am glad somebody can make a beer this good, regularly. Thanks, guys!
