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.

What a great beer. Stone IPA presents with a golden amber color and a slight haze.An obvious hops aroma was present the minute the beer was poured. Despite the vast amount of hops this beer is incredibly well balanced.

Excellent IPA that delivers everything you want in a good beer. Bitter but well balanced, this beer is worthy of being in the regular rotation for certain. If you haven’t tried this beauty yet do yourself a favor and grab some.

Thick head. Crisp taste with no overly hoppy after taste. Great floral aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good beer. Your basic recipe for a good IPA Stone style. Perfect beer to have stocked in the fridge so you can have a good beer when doing yard work or some other manly project. ---Crozier

I prefer the Ruination, but this is quite excellent. Decent hop flavor. Expensive in my area though.

This is a good american IPA. The aroma is very nice and I love the orange-tint to color. It just looks like it will taste good. A funny thing on my first bottle, I could have sworn a slight diacetyl flavor(butterscotch) in the background. I tried the second bottle (which is what I am rating today) and it was not there?? Maybe a faulty batch on the first one? Otherwise this is a good IPA from Stone who usually mucks up beers with bravado and stupidity (see ruination and arrogant bastard ales)

nice taste and a great finish! this stone is exceptional for all occasions and may be a reasonable substitute for those picnic days when everyone else is drinking, dare i say, light beers.

JasonBMoore (22) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Beautiful golden ale with a big, rocky white head and light aroma of perfumy, orange hops. Sparkling dry flavor, strong carbonation and loaded with hops. Finish was short and somewhat tart. The 6.9% ABV is masked quite nicely. An excellent IPA, I like it even more than the Arrogant Bastard.

Pours a clear brilliant orange with zero sediment. Medium head. Citrus hops with possibly the best finish on any IPA out there, at least any I have ever have ever tried. Beautifully, actually perfectly, blended IPA with just enough malt backbone to distinguish it from unnecessarily overhopped brews. I love this stuff. Glad it’s so easy to find. Bravo.
