4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
An attractive looking hazey orange beer with quickly dissipating white froth. Brilliant nose of brewery air, fresh picked hops, pine, grapefruit, and apricot. Balanced yet bitterly hoppy with enough malt sweetness to successfully bring out the complex flavors of the hops. Finish is crisp and superbly fresh tasting. Certainly an I.P.A. to look up to.

Pours a beautiful clear gold-amber with a light head which diminishes quickly. Some lacing and a small stream of bubbles persist. Strong smell of hops, taste is all hops from the beginning to the end. Not complex but well balanced and has some real body to it.

Excellent hoppy aroma, and nice crisp tatse. I may have a 3-way tie for my favorite IPA’s---Bell’s 2 Hearted, DFH 90 minute, and now Stone IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2008 One of the most sound IPA’s I have tried. It was my first Stone experience, and I was expecting a punch in the mouth, but got a wonderfully balanced IPA.

This is a good tasting IPA. There is a great aroma to this beer with a fruity/hoppy finish. It is a heavier style compared to others.

Solid IPA. Nothing too hard to handle with a moderately masked sweet finished so the bitterness is finely juxtaposed. I like

Pours a pretty golden/copper color with a white head. The aroma is great and overwhelmingly full of hops. The aroma dominates on the first few sips adding depth of flavor. Great finish thats full of hops as well.

One of the best IPA’s I know of. Wonderful from start to finish. It’s not overly hoppy like some IPA’s tend to be but it doesn’t fall flat either.

Thanks Stone for turning me on to Ipa’s. Very first ipa I drank nearly 7 yrs ago. Now this is my go to Ipa. Appearance is golden. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, with a little pine aroma with a touch of resin. Touch of bitterness but just perfect. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable!
