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.

Thick head. Crisp taste with no overly hoppy after taste. Great floral aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An excellent example of a massed produced, but very high quality IPA. Definitely one of my favorite IPAs out there. The aroma after the initial pour is excellent, though I did not have proper glassware(might be even better with a good glass), it pours a beautiful golden honey color. Lots of hoppy aroma before your first sip. Taste is very complex, lots citrus fruity notes, an initial sweetness which turns slightly bitter and then all biter after taste (but in a very good way). I paired this with a spicy Chinese dish. But then kept drinking it long after I finished the dinner. Iíll definitely choose this IPA again!

I prefer the Ruination, but this is quite excellent. Decent hop flavor. Expensive in my area though.

This is a good american IPA. The aroma is very nice and I love the orange-tint to color. It just looks like it will taste good. A funny thing on my first bottle, I could have sworn a slight diacetyl flavor(butterscotch) in the background. I tried the second bottle (which is what I am rating today) and it was not there?? Maybe a faulty batch on the first one? Otherwise this is a good IPA from Stone who usually mucks up beers with bravado and stupidity (see ruination and arrogant bastard ales)

nice taste and a great finish! this stone is exceptional for all occasions and may be a reasonable substitute for those picnic days when everyone else is drinking, dare i say, light beers.

Beautiful golden ale with a big, rocky white head and light aroma of perfumy, orange hops. Sparkling dry flavor, strong carbonation and loaded with hops. Finish was short and somewhat tart. The 6.9% ABV is masked quite nicely. An excellent IPA, I like it even more than the Arrogant Bastard.

Pours a clear brilliant orange with zero sediment. Medium head. Citrus hops with possibly the best finish on any IPA out there, at least any I have ever have ever tried. Beautifully, actually perfectly, blended IPA with just enough malt backbone to distinguish it from unnecessarily overhopped brews. I love this stuff. Glad it’s so easy to find. Bravo.

Wow. If you like hops and thats all you like, than this is the beer for you. Itís a very nice golden color with heavy white head that lasts. The aroma and taste is nothing but hops and pine. Very true to the cascade hops, however, it lacks on the complexity of the taste. While I love hops, there still needs to be some undertones of citrus which Iím not getting at all. Not overwhelmingly bitter, but what you could expect at 70 BIUís. Overall, a very good cascade hops IPA and definitely worth trying.

1" pure white thick head that lasts for ever with very thick lacing, that lasted at the top of the glass when the glass was empty. Crystal clear golden-ornage color. Citrus, particularily orange, and pine aroma. Lots of hop flavor with a good malt backbone. Medium-light mouthfeel with good carbonation, nice bitter bite on the back and outside of my tongue. I like this beer a lot though its not my favorite IPA.
