COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
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.

Wonderfully hoppy with a delicious bite. Balanced bready flavor, with a great flowery aroma. This coupled with the Double Bastard are my first experiences with Stone, and I’m a better man for it.

A harmonic, melodic balance of ingredients that fuse together to provide me with everything I look for in a beer. I really enjoyed this one.

Pours a clean golden amber with an off-white head that lasted thoughout the pint. The aroma and flavor was a sweet floral balance. One of my favorite IPAs.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy amber color with a huge marang head which left huge lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, pine, vanilla and malts. Strong and hoppy. Taste has a strong pine hop presence. Another excellent IPA.

Big bottle. I am a big fan of malty brews, but this is one of the best hoppy beers out there. The brew is bitterly hoppy, tastes hoppy, and smells hoppy. The hop intensity is awesome but not too much. I was very impressed by this wonderful brew. If you have a taste for the hops, by all means, get yourself a big bottle of this beer.

Pours gold with a finger of really soapy white head. Really killer lacing throughout. Nose is ALL floral hops. Yum. Taste is big hops up front but with a deftly executed malt note. Fairly balanced actually. It sits somewhat thin on the tongue and has a nice bracing bitter finish. Pretty much the epitome of the style. Nice beer.

Excellent IPA. Lots of floral hops in the nose and a similar taste. Finishes smooth with a hint of citrus.

Just about as sessionable an ipa as there is. Very piney with a lot of grapefruit. Goes great with anything spicy

Nice floral smell and amber color. Really good hops balanced with malts. My first hop love. Still a really excellent IPA.
