Real killer stuff. Hardly ever do you get so much hoppy bitter in a beer so easily drinkable. Drinking this beer is like hanging out with Jackie Chan - dude is strong enough to kick your ass at any given moment, but he’s too cool to do you like that.

Bottle. Creamy light orange color with 1.5 finger white head that stays. Lacing. Aroma of sweet, flowery hops. Flavor had citrus and caramel notes along with a ton of hops. Palate was creamy and light with a dry finish. I was looking forward to this and it did not disappoint. Killer logo too!

The color is good. Great lacing. There was a keg of it for free, so I didn’t really have time to decide how good it is, I just kept on drinking.
There has to be ample hop content and that gets done.
One outstanding IPA.

I was excited for this one, as it was something I considered a classic IPA. Poured a beautiful golden color and gave that hopsy smell I love. Had a sip, wasn’t disappointed, but not blow off my feet either. A good IPA, but nothing to go wild over. A smooth drink, that I would buy again, but not get too excited about.

Bottle. Clear golden amber color with a slight light cream frothy head. An easy to drink IPA that is not complex and has a great flavor. Strong hops which give you a tasty dry bitterness.

What a great beer. Stone IPA presents with a golden amber color and a slight haze.An obvious hops aroma was present the minute the beer was poured. Despite the vast amount of hops this beer is incredibly well balanced.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 Sweet hops of toasted lemons. Spicey notes maybe cinnamon. Copper beauty nice amber waves of grain. Thought this would be the 1. Why should l try to fool myself and settle for less. Lovely flavor large flowery bouquet that is hendered by temp. Yet in all still satisfyingly crisp abundent to thirst.
