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.

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 IPAís 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 íHopí saturation that I found very satisfying. I also liked not being able to single out the alcohol (like some other hopped-up Ipaís and Double Ipaís). Iíd actually give this a í20í but then Iíd 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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 12 oz. bottle. Golden pour with a strong delightful aroma almost matched by its taste. Surprisingly good for a year round brew. Wish I could find this at home.

Good beer for IPA lovers. Definetly above baseline. Great aroma, sweet and hoppy. Flavor didnít have as much kick as the aroma. Wish it did, but good beer overall.

Itís worth the price. Most of the time itís the most expensive beer in the store but it is worth it. Even better from a freshly filled growler at the brewery. The food at the Stone World Bistro sucks. The beer does all the talking for that company. This is my favorite indian pale ale.

On tap at a restaurant in Denver Int’l Airport. I’m an IPA fan, and I was really pleased with this beer. Very hoppy. Great flavor. I like it a lot.
