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 IPAs 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 Ipas and Double Ipas). Id actually give this a 20 but then Id 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.

McStagger (13) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Easily one of the best IPAs on the market. Beautiful citrus bomb with loads of bountiful hops. Killer, killer IPA.

Tabbe (13) - NORWAY - JAN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 My go to IPA. Nice golden color with a noticeable white head. Loads of hops on the nose and palate - the way only Stone knows how. Somewhat unbalanced but a fantastic brew none the less.

Not the freshest iteration of this IPA Ive had - some sediment was visible in the bottle, and the aroma was muted

Dark, golden, pours with a nice head. Viciously good. One of the most satisfying IPAs Ive head yet. The bitterness makes this beer. Stone does another great job of punishing the palate with an excellent beer.

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

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

Chupa LaHomebrew (12) - Gahanna, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2004
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.
