COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and youíll 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 beerís crisp and refreshing bitter character.

this one surprised me....for an IPA, it was very citrusy and floral, and reminded me of wheat beer, not an IPA....for the true hop heads out there, try Arrogant Bastard ale from Stone, it is truly a bitter treat, but this offering seemed to be more sweet and fruity than what I expect from an IPA

Aroma of hops and perfume. Hops dominate the flavor and palate as well. Light amber color. Did I mention the hops?

Wonderfully unique flavor. Smelled and looked wonderful. Solid white head. Flavor may be too complex for some tastes, very floral, as I previously stated very unique. Previous beer appreciation required. High alcohol content - Crunk Juice.

This is a great beer. I bought one of their big bottles at Bevmo on a whim. I poured it into my big glass and was immediately intrigued by the hoppy, almost floral aroma. The color is beautiful golden amber, with a plentiful head that stuck around for a while. The flavor was citrusy with some sweetness to it, with a crisp bitter finish and a long lasting hoppy aftertaste. If you love hops, this is a beer for you. The complexity of this beer is what is striking about it. The palate was fairly average, but Iím a cream ale kind of girl, Iím used to ultra smooth. The alcohol content is slightly evident in the aftertaste, and definetly evident when you are almost done with the beer and you get up to grab some chips. This beer packs a punch. Fantastic overall.

Good IPA. Pours gold with an average sized white head. Lively carbonation. Starts slightly sweet with a nice bitter finish. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Bitter, but still smooth. Hoppy, but not overly so. If your preference is an insanely hoppy and floral IPA, there are other beers to try.

Bottle. A bright orange/yellow color, slightly cloudy. Medium head that disappeared fairly quickly. A citrusy aroma. Initially a fairly hoppy flavor, but a long smooth finish. A very enjoyable IPA, easy to gulp. I prefer dogfish head 60-minute, but this is excellent.

This was the beer that opened my mind to a whole new world and I've never turned back. It's a favorite that I always fall back to and will compare all other IPAs to. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
