COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and youíll see a picture of Stone IPA! "Dry-hopped" for an extra two weeks, this unique process gives our IPA its bountiful hop aroma and rich hop flavor. A full 70+ IBUs (International Bitterness Units) creates this beerís crisp and refreshing bitter character.

Hoppy aroma, hoppy taste! This beer shows well, follows up great, and finishes perfect Stone is new to New Jersey, so I am just discovering this - this one was a big surprise. The ratio of hops in the flavor is perfect. Too many brews try to get hoppy and get a little silly, not these guys. Donít get me wrong, the hops are strong, but itís perfect. In my mind, this is the best tasting beer today. (Sorry Sierra Nevada)

Any good IPA needs to be heavy on the hops, however it has a good bitter finish.

I expected a lot out of this when I tried it in San Diego. However, itís skunky taste made me drink the water at my table with my meal instead. Donít get the hype. A Redhook IPA blows this away.

I had only enjoyed this in the bottle until my recent trip to San Diego, where I was able to have it on tap. Very smooth floral hop flavor with just enough bite to make it interesting and very easy to drink.

I could nose this beer all day, with its insistent hops jumping at me from my tulip glass. Pine notes abound, not quite like a Christmas tree, but close enough to merit mention. People seem to think this beer has some semblance of balance to it; I donít. The hops kicked me right in the teeth and went screaming down my throat. If Iím in the right mood I can enjoy it, but itís not one of my favorite IPAs.

Favorite IPA. Clear amber appearance with substantial white head. Spicey and piney hops with a touch of citrus. Extremely bitter, but very tolerable with balanced malt, full body and crisp finish. Keep trying other IPAís, but keep buying the Stone.
