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.

A fantastic IPA. This beer has plenty of bite that goes great with just about any meail It reaks of malt and hops and the taste confirms it. For a "basic" IPA this ranks near the top.

Had this one from a special cask that used centennial hops. Stone was doing some sort of promotion at Iron Abbey. Poured a golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma was very floral and hoppy. Taste was a heap of hops right up front, but then some faint fruity notes and a bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable, very balanced, especially for something this hoppy. Like I said, this was a special cask, so it’s a little different from the standard brew.

My go-to IPA. Fresh with the citrus notes, lite on the piney aspect,and smooth hops blend well with this beer. Sexy lacing. The only thing would do is bring more hops out in the aroma without messing with the taste. I love smelling the hops while taking a great swig!

Minimial aroma, light color, overall very smooth for a good ipa. Great tasting hoppiness without an overwheling bitterness

Dégustée à Los Angeles lors d’une soirée bien chaude... Très bonne IPA, du corps, des arômes d’agrume, de la longueur en bouche... On dirait presque une double.

One awesome IPA, this is what beer drinking is all about. Copper colored with a hoppy, hoppy nose and flavor, just damn good!

Orange in color. Bitter bitter bitter. Very complex, sweet, sour, fruty. An amazing aroma. My second brew from Stone.

This hazy, orangey golden brew has a medium, white head. The nose is full with herbal hoppiness and the slightest nuance of maltiness. The palate brings out the malty character with roasted grains and nuttiness. The finish resumes the hoppy character with some herbal/lemony bitterness.

Clear dark golden color with big off-white head. Ummmm, lots of Northwest hops in the aroma, and some malt. Bitter at first, in the middle, and the end, with lingering hop aftertaste. There is malt to back it up though. A very good Amercan-style IPA.
