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.

From a bottle. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Appearance is a golden yellow with a white head and light lacing. Very hop forward with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body with high carbonation. A VERY solid IPA.

Golden pour with white head. Leaves lacing in the glass. Renowned for its hoppiness, this beer does not disappoint. Overall hoppy flavor with notes of citrus.

Astograph (14) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours murky gold with creamy white head. Strong, fruity aromas: pine, citrus, peaches and passonfruit. Strong, enveloping and lasting bitterness with an oily mouthfeel. Easy to see how this is an IPA for all others to compare to.

Really good pour, great head, was frozen due to fridge temp being reduced. Bitter after taste. Fruity smell, floral bit of a caramel like taste. Will try one that hasn’t been frozen.

I usually dont buy too many IPAs or American brews...but this is probably the best IPA I have had. Very good.

I had just decided earlier that IPA’s available in 12 oz bottles were probably dominated by the great tasting Bridgeport and Big Daddy (Speakeasy). Then, I had Stones IPA.Great Stuff from the first to the last sip and a ’Hop’ saturation that I found very satisfying. I also liked not being able to single out the alcohol (like some other hopped-up Ipa’s and Double Ipa’s). I’d actually give this a ’20’ but then I’d probably never buy any other. Even the bottle looked cool. Congratulations Stone, on a terrific IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 Very hoppy, with citric overtones. The bitterness is prevalent but well balanced.

Ramones79 (13) - perryville, Missouri, USA - JUL 16, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 I am thankful I can find this beer easily. It has an awesome citrus and floral aroma. The taste is quite bitter and easy to sip on. This stuff is addictive and I will continue to purchase this! RERATE : Had this again tonight oh yeah baby, better than I thought!

Bottle. Lovely, aromatic stuff; just a bit of carbonation bite, very floral.
