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.

Pours out golden with a white head. Strong hops and pine smell. Pretty light mouthfeel with a smooth taste that finishes with a good amount of hops bitterness. Great IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 This is a great beer and it is readily available everywhere (Southern CA obviously). Nicely bitter, some fruit with spicy/earthy flavors. Nice mouth-feel. Itís a great IPA, but not the absolute best.

It pours golden yellow, thin white head medium bubbles. The aroma is pine, grass, zest, donít get much else. As expectee strong hops flavour, everlasting bitter finish. Itís one dimensional but nails it.

Pine and citrus aroma with clear golden amber color and a medium white head. Flavor is excellent with a wonderful hop bite. Alcohol is very well hidden. A great IPA.

Slightly hazy golden brew has a sharp citrus aroma, strong grapefruit note. The light body finishes with a sharp but clean bitterness that is a wash with fresh hop flavor. This is a nice west coast IPA that is hoppy with assertive bitterness but still well balanced.

Pours light amber. Tall foamy head. Great aroma, lots of hops, and bitter fruit. Flavor was good, complex. Texture had carbonation, but retained the smooth feel I like in IPAs. Recommend it.

I enjoy IPAs more than most styles of beer, and this one really confuses me. Maybe it was the particular bottle I had, but it was almost a caricature of an IPA. The floral hoppiness was almost too much so. The bitterness was a little too exaggerated. On the other hand, it was delicious and I enjoyed every drop. Strange.

Poured a light, clear copper colour, with a decent head. A little more clear than what I had expected. Smells, well like an IPA should, clean and crisp of citric hops. Taste is strong of citric hops with a lightly sweet malt background continuing throughout. Mouthfeel I found disturbingly thin, not because it is really thin but because it was thnner than a well built pale ale, and I expect an IPA to have a heavier mouthfeel than an APA. Overall this is a good, well-built beer, just not as good as expectation and hype. I'd drink again, most definitely, but I won't hold this up as the best IPA I've ever had, it's not.

This is the best IPA I have ever tasted. It is perfectly balanced. Nicely golden and a glorious head. What type of hops do they use? It has a wonderful hoppy flavor, but is not overpowering like most IPA's that try to go over the top. Way better than the other IPA variations that Stone is offering. I just wish I lived near the brewery because a 6-pack cost 10.95 in Mass. Ouch!
