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.

I can honestly say this is one of the best beers on the planet. The aroma is pure earthiness. The taste is pure nirvana. If I had to choose one beer to drink for the rest of my life, I would chose Stone IPA!

hoppy hoppy hoppy. got love those hops. I wonder if it is some nice casscade hops that give it a citrus flavor. One of my favorite IPA's.

Purchased this one from the brewery--- they filled my growler right from the tap. Such a fun way to get your beer! Beautiful, reddish-golden ale with a light lacy head. Strong hoppy character as advertised, with excellent balance of flavors. Unique and totally drinkable.

Oh yeah.. this is one hoppy beer. Cool and refreshing the whole time. Not much of a bite though, which I love. The aftertaste is bittersweet, rich with hops. Itís almost a perfumy taste at the very end. Very unusual, but good. Not something I would drink too much of in one sitting, a little too rich for my blood.

Bottle. A small head when poured into a pint glass. Excellent aroma. A bit of bite to it when first sipped...possibly due to the carbonation. High citrus and a bit of pine taste. Very drinkable IPA. Overall and excellent IPA, although not as complex in flavor as Dogfish Head.

Nice aroma that makes this IPA inviting at first. I was expecting a stronger bite with claim of over 70 IBUís listed. There was a lingering finish on palate, but not crisp & clean like other West Coast IPAís.

Stone makes plenty of beers that will let you know what hops tastes like and this is certainly one of them.

Pour: light orange with a white head. body looks a bit thin Smell: loads of hops, some citrus (maybe lemon?) grassy and floral Taste: slightly agressive hop flavor up front with some citrus notes. floral grassy notes with a slightly spicy and skunky finish. One of the better IPA iv had. i still like the ruination version better but overall not bad.
