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.

Finally got to try some off the tap after consuming countless bombers. Hazy orange body with foamy off-white head. Full floral nose with plenty of citrus and pine. Hops overpower, but don't dominate the smooth malt flavors from initial taste to finish. The standard-bearer of IPAs deserves all of the praise it gets.

Close to my ideal beer. Sampled on draught at Tria in Philadelphia, PA, which incidentally is a GREAT beer bar and well worth a trip. Big rocky white head tops a pale, clear, slightly orange body. Huge hop nose, very flowery. Initial sip knocks you back with bitterness but subsequently sips reveal a subtle complexity. Stone managed to get the right balance between maltiness and hoppiness. The resut is a full bodied beer that just seems right. Very refreshing and thirst quenching, although a bit too high in alcohol to be my session beer.....

Poured amber with a slight haze. Small white head with lots of lacing. Huge hop aroma and flavor. A highly sessionable IPA. One of the west coast greats. REPRESENT!

22oz bottle. golden orange with a decent cream head that dissipates leaving traces on the glass. Aroma is very hoppy with a hint of wood. Taste is full of hops with a grapefruit bitterness. Finishes dry with no excessively bitte aftertaste, just a hint of that grapefruit..

Mild aroma compared to most ipas. Flavor is nothing to write home about. Hazy brown orange hue. Its an IPA and that’s about it.

12oz bottles. Pours a slight cloudy yellow colour. A nice hop punch to it, quite tasty and smooth. Doesn’t live up to the hype though. Have had better IPAs, but its still damn good.

My favorite regular ipa to date. Lovely floral hop aroma that hints at things to come. Scrumptious fresh hop flavor with enough malt to give balance and body. Medium finish that holds you over just long enough until the next sip. You can’t go wrong with this classic. Try it!

Beautiful appearance. Clear and golden with a distinct hop aroma. The taste is a good mix of sweet malt and bitter hop. The hop aftertaste doesn’t attack the throat and is certainly not overpowering.
