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.

Never been an IPA fan, so I canít say I cared for the hoppy aroma much at all. Nevertheless, I found it very fresh and drinkable.

Very nice, Very clean IPA flavor. not as overpowering flavor-wise as some of the other offerings from Stone Brewing. This IPA has a nice crisp flavor, and it does not linger and burn your mouth like some of the super steriod-laden IPAs created for mere shock value.

The best beer Iíve had in years. I get it in the 22oz bottle. I savor every drop. Crisp and fresh. Great color. Slight citrus odor.

Great brew. This is my standard IPA. Easy drinking at a relatively high %. Hops, malts, but they are overbearing this beer can be drank fast.

Light, citrus hop aroma. Medium mouth feel. Difficult to describe flavor but very good. Pleasant lingering taste. Golden color, no head retension.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 Wow, this is a true IPA. Most hops Iíve had in an IPA. Not for the fant. VERY hopsy. STRONG. 1 is enough, heartburn sets in. IPA personified.

I really like the beers this company puts out. I tried an IPA before and did not like it. But I gave these guys a shot. I still donít like IPAís. Just not for me taste like I am chewing on a flower. Although this is better than the other I tasted, just not for me.

A worthwhile ale. Much better balanced than the ruination. If memory serves me right, its rather bold, but not over the top. Bitter, pleasant sipper.

me and my friends bought a six pack of this to be adventurous, i have not had anything better, but of coarse i am relatively new to the beer scene, the flavor was so perfectly balanced between medium bitterness and a sweetness that hits in the beginning, i loved every sip and this is now my friends favorite beer
