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.

Great IPA! Medium head. Very pronounced aroma of hop, one of the best aromas ever. Excellent balance of bitter and dry flavors. One of the best colored beers I have ever seen, only the premium Belgium beers do better.

Smooth, perfectly floral, a beautiful color, and tasty beyond belief. The perfect IPA.

Loved the hop to malt ratio, great color and finish was average to long and with the hops they use, it was great

Wow! A love of hops is obviously the origin of this delightful brew. Sweet and full with a hint of pine or maybe alcohol. Clear, deceiving color does not alert you to the secrets locked inside the glass. There is a space on the cooler shelf from now on for my new favorite.

A strong floral taste and aroma, not too hoppy. A sort of Gewurztraminer beer. Very attractive color. $4.50 for 22 oz means it’s not an everyday brew for me, but I would serve it to guests.

Poured a cloudy copper/straw color. Medium white frothy head dispersed quickly, leaving a persistent lacing. Aroma is pure malt, mingled with hoppy goodness. I’m an IPA fanatic and after a recent string of Belgium samplings, this was a nice homecoming. Stone IPA has a big pine/hop taste that balances well with a sweet malt and citrusy fruit flavor. This leaves only a slight bitter aftertaste when compared to the Arrogant Bastard and the Ruination IPA. This isn’t the "death by hops" experience many IPA fanatics drool over but it is an excellent IPA to be enjoyed by both fanatics and neophytes to the style.

Never gets old. Perfect balance of aggressive hops with malt enough to stand it up. She always looks good poured into a pint glass, she smells delish and the mouthfeel really takes it home. Everything in a west coast stye IPA is here and in near perfect proportions ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
