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.

This is a very solid, hoppy IPA. Generous hops on the aroma and in the flavor. Notes of pine and citrus in the aroma. The flavor and finish are also quite bitter and floral and not too sweet, with at most medium carbonation. I like the Ruination IPA more, but this is a good IPA.

12 oz. -> shaker. At first blush, this is just your ordinary IPA: pours a translucent light amber, with a nice, frothy head and decent lacing. Then you smell it, and something seems off: hoppy, citrus, with subtle apricot and evergreen notes, and bubble gum? But when you taste it, you know this is no ordinary IPA.. Mixed in with the flora-citrus hoppiness and the subtle toasted maltiness are Bubblicious and the subdued bite of fresh black pepper. And balance? Perfect.

A great IPA. Low AA hops (guessing) because nose has a little more umph to it (vs. hoppy body...mmmm...hoppy body). Caramel, typical ale yeast. Just an enjoyable beer. Would recommend!

Good and basic ipa, not the best but one of my personal top 5 ipas. Hoppy, citrusy and flavours of grapes.

Bottle in LA. Wonderful grassy, citrus aroma. A similar taste with heavy bitterness up front. All in all a classic Weat Coast IPA. Super solid, but don’t get the extraordinary adulation. There are better IPAs.

clear orange in colour with an aroma of citrus and orange peel and it tastes very good with the citrus notes and hoppy character this is a nice ipa.

Probably the best beer I’ve ever had (as far as my preference goes). This is truly the last IPA you’ll ever wat to drain. Fragrant, beautiful rich mangoey shade of yellow. The flavor is biiitttterrr!!! As the great poet whose name I’ve forgotten once said: ’It is bitter bitter. But I love it because it is bitter, like my heart’. I sat down at my local pub last night and tried two twenty two ouncers. The chalkboard advertising the specials of the evening had it labeled ’double bitter’ and it cost around 5 bucks but it was well worth it. Great beer.

A good IPA, and by the ratings, seems to be one of the best. You'll like it if you like bitter beer. Impressed, though I just wish it maybe had a sweeter start, with the existing close.

Best IPA I’ve had to date...no question. Pronounced hops but not rough on the taste buds. Beautiful deep gold color and thick head. Citrus flavor with little aftertaste. The above average acohol content gives it a warm feeling on the way down. Well done stone. I’ll have to try the rest of the line.
