COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and you’ll 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 beer’s crisp and refreshing bitter character.

Served on tap at Atlantis Resort and Casino. Needless to say only cost me a one dollar tip while playing poker. Great balance of malt and hops. The aroma was citrusy with subtle hints of pine. Beautiful beer that will be a mainstay on my personal menu.

Well balanced. Hop aroma is very good. Not overly bitter. Lighter in color. Really enjoyed this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had the double dry hopped IPA only available in brewpubs (so I was told). Good aroma but not what I expected for the "double dry hopped" version I had. Thought it’d have a stronger aroma. Same aroma as the regular Stone IPA it seemed, so double sounds like a gimmick. Taste was awesome like most of what Stone does, especially the IPAs. Didn’t kill my tastebuds either. Was smooth to drink, good malt balance to the hops. Wasn’t an overwhelming tastebud bitch slap. Solid beer.

This is one of my favorites. It is hoppy, but I really like that. If someone doesn’t like the taste of hops then he/she shouldn’t get IPA’s in my opinion.

Sorry to be giving another perfect score, but I’m new here, and looking up the beers I love, and this is one. Happy hoppy flavor with a kick. Look for their Anniversary brews of this beer, and if you are in the SD area, look for Stone’s annual Anniversary party, it’s a blast every year.

wonderfully hoppy, great aroma. Not too bitter either. Long and smooth aftertaste. Wish I could try it on draft.

If you've never tasted this beer, you, my friend, are in for a real treat. It has a very crisp taste to it. You need to try it very, very cold-almost freezing, to bring out that awesome taste. Stone Pale Ale, I.P.A. and Arrogant Bastard Ale, are quite simply the finest beers in the world. Haven't tried Double Bastard yet. It's hard to find, because it's a seasonal brew. Looking forward to it though! : )

Yes, it’s hoppy. Had it on tap and from bottle. Both were very enjoyable. It’s better on the colder side.

simply the best beer i have ever had thus far. i love the sweet taste at the beginning of each taste, but that is followed by an even better hoppy favor that i simply love. the best.
