Even though IPAís and the taste of hops are not among beer tastes I like this still isnít bad. Itís better than many of the IPAís I have. Even though it has a strong taste it goes down smooth and leaves a pleasant feeling as it goes down the hatch. So drink up you IPA lovers.!

Enjoyed on the patio at the brewery. Looks great - smells better; pine, malt and big cascade hop presenece. Flavor is much the same as aroma. Extremely well balanced and 6.9% is well hidden - until about half way through your 3rd pint I found.
One of the best (actually probably the best) American style I.P.A.s..
Could we get this in Ontario please?

a fearsome stone figure that has power to ward ward off evil spirits. Good hoppy taste Pours a clear yellow with a hoppy aroma. Hazy orange w/ a huge off-white head.

A great IPA. Not the best Iíve ever had, but top tier. Bitter, but not quite bitter enough. Fruity notes and a good backbone of flavor. Will try again when I get the chance.

So, maybe it is because I've been spoiled by the NW Style IPA, but I can't help but feel like this beer is so average. The color was really nice, but the love that makes up an IPA is all filtered out. It smelled pretty medicinal, it tasted bottled, maybe a little old. It wasn't bad, just wasn't great. I think I'll stick with Arrogant Bastard the next time I go for a Stone beer.

Beautiful, golden color. Great head. Great tastes, oh the hops. It was bitter, but in the best possible way. I want more.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Was nice. Poured a light amber hue and had a big foamy head. Lots of hops in scent and flavor and a nice bitter after taste. Also detected hints of pine and citrus in the scent. Recommended but preferred second to Ruination IPA.

Real killer stuff. Hardly ever do you get so much hoppy bitter in a beer so easily drinkable. Drinking this beer is like hanging out with Jackie Chan - dude is strong enough to kick your ass at any given moment, but heís too cool to do you like that.

Pours light and clear, and has good floral aromas and strong hoppy flavors.
