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.

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!
