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.

Way hoppy, nicely bitter, pours a tad cloudy. A good beer to teach that Budweiser swiller what a beer should be.

Another score for stone brewing company. This heavily hopped american IPA is a beauty. Copper/bronze and clear with vivacoius bubbles and average head with a gorgeous hop aroma. As an IPA lover and hophead I appreciate the somewhat overtly hopped nature of the beer. It is certainly a little out of balance in favor of the hops though. The malt is just there like a backdrop, a canvas for Lee Chase's bitter palate of warrior, centennial, and whatever else he has hiding in there. I could buy a six-pack of this and drink two a night after work and be happy.

First and foremost I am usually not a IPA fan, I prefer darker beers. But this is quite a well made beer. Very Very Hoppy with a lot of flavor in it. A little bit of bitterness and a fruity flavor but overall a good beer. This is my first Stone Bewing Beer so I look forward to trying the rest of the line-up

Pours slightly hazy,, with rich golden color. Impressive citrus flavors with a moderate, yet smooth, bitter finish. This is a very dry beer without almost no sweet taste. An excellent beer.

One of my all time favorites. Golden color, substantial head when properly poured. Love the big grapefruit nose! Awesome citrus, crisp taste. Dangerously chugable. HOPS! Mmmmm

Hazy golden color with hoppy resinous aroma. Crisp. Floral honey bitterness lasts on the tongue. Near perfect IPA and one of my favorites. This one is all about the hops.

As close to a perfect American IPA as I’ve ever tasted (being a hop head). Grapefruit / citrus hop aroma (Simcoe Hop) and nice bitterness - nice body, full flavor, touches of malt and nice lasting head. My only criticism is it needs a little more hops - but that comes in the Stone Ruination IPA. A beautiful thing.

A hop heavy beer with a strong pine scent along with definate citrus, most prominently orange. Poured a murky dark orange and respectable bitterness that evolved into an outstanding finish flavor and mouth feel

I find this to be one of the premier American IPA’s. The floral aroma and smooth hoppy finish is what all IPA’s should want to achieve. It is very crisp and clean. Kudos!

Once poured, you notice the mysterious dense head, slightly misty golden orange colour. One of the first IPA's I have seriously sampled to date and yet still remains my favourite. Starts with a strong crisp and complexed, hop to floral flavour with a pronounced finish. It is a medley of liquid love in a bottle. I am throwing my first wife out for this beer!
