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.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Great off-white frothy head lasting a good part of the beer. Clear sparkling body but did notice tiny body particles and a thin density. Brilliant amber IPA coloring convinced me to drink.

Heavy hops aroma, slight lemon but more grapefruit/orange; quite like a fruit punch. Light yeast aroma that I thought was a bit meaty, more so as I finishes the glass. Initially lightly sweet and acidic, this IPA finishes with the acidity elevating to a moderate bite and lasts quite short. Fairly full bodied as it is an IPA and a bit dry but has a lively carbonation. This a very good IPA even though it left a slight metallic feel in the mouth.

Until I discoved the AleSmith IPA, this was my favorite. And sometimes I still choose this over the AleSmith. This diserves it’s famousness.

This is one of my favorite brews in the world. I drink more of this one than of anything else out there. It is a fixture in my fridge. Very citrus in taste and aroma. Pours a golden-amber, nice and cloudy from the bottle. Head is a beautiful froth, if slightly less than a finger. Beautifully refined in bitterness and sweetness, dry and light in body. This brew almost singlehandedly redefined west coast IPAs, and continues to excel. It is rare that other IPAs can even come close, and even rarer for a brew to eclipse the high-quality flavor and all-around goodness delivered in a Stone IPA.

zesty hopiness, lavender, pine, oranges, caramel, vanilla. Nice fruity aftertaste, palate too thin.
