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.

Sorry to be giving another perfect score, but Iím new here, and looking up the beers I love, and this is one. Happy hoppy flavor with a kick. Look for their Anniversary brews of this beer, and if you are in the SD area, look for Stoneís annual Anniversary party, itís a blast every year.

wonderfully hoppy, great aroma. Not too bitter either. Long and smooth aftertaste. Wish I could try it on draft.

If you've never tasted this beer, you, my friend, are in for a real treat. It has a very crisp taste to it. You need to try it very, very cold-almost freezing, to bring out that awesome taste. Stone Pale Ale, I.P.A. and Arrogant Bastard Ale, are quite simply the finest beers in the world. Haven't tried Double Bastard yet. It's hard to find, because it's a seasonal brew. Looking forward to it though! : )

Yes, itís hoppy. Had it on tap and from bottle. Both were very enjoyable. Itís better on the colder side.

simply the best beer i have ever had thus far. i love the sweet taste at the beginning of each taste, but that is followed by an even better hoppy favor that i simply love. the best.

I felt that this IPA was not as hoppy as it should have been. It has great apperarance once it is poured into the glass. It tastes a little to fruity and lite for me. It is a good beer but I think it tastes to much like Blue Moon and not enough like a bitter hoppy IPA should.

Amazing IPA! Perfect amount of Hops (a lot), and a great combination of citrus/floral/etc. Perfect amount of bitterness. By far, this IPA along with their íRuination IPAí are my favorites. Buy one and enjoy, you will not be disappointed.

Great hop aroma, clear dark color with medium head, big hopy flavor and great mouth feel that sits on the back of the tounge

12oz bottle. This is a great beer. Thick fluffy head. Smells great when you pour it--strong fresh hop aroma. Not quite Ruination strong, but it pretty much smells like a pile of hops. Tastes the same. Good fresh, bitter flavor. Iím more of an Imperial IPA person, but this is one of my favorite everyday beers.
