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.

This appeared a lot lighter in the glass then I had expected, but was still a nice pale gold colour. The head was a healthy 3 fingers of cloud-like creamy texture. The lacing coated the glass, to where it was opaque - cool. Smell, oh, the smell. Grapefruit citrus, and pine hops, all in attendance, right where they should be, which follow through to shine in the taste. Firm body, nice balance, sufficient carbonation, dry - can a big IPA like this be called silky smooth?

Fantastic IPA. Great example of the style. Appearance is a golden pale. Nice head and solid lacing Smell is hops, hops, hops. Citrus dominate with some pine and floral hints. Taste is hoppy, citrus, floral, bitter. Great balance between bittering hops and flavor hops. Finish isnít sweet but there is a dry malt flavor on the very back end. Mouthfeel is very nice. Drinkability is terrific if you are a fan of the style. If you donít like IPAís..this one isnít for you. Great beer. Itís simplistic: hops are hops and malts are malts. Not overly complex but everything is in perfect balance allowing one to enjoy this fine beer in all itís glory. Well done. Serving type: bottle

Poured out of 12 oz bottle, great hoppy malty aroma. Has a golden clear appearance. Great big hop flavor with nice carbonation that brings out the flavor even more. This is a great IPA.

KennyGalanif (42) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
pours a clear light golden amber color, one finger of a light off white head. bubbles last a while, with great lacing. smell is bready and caramel malts, earthy and slightly citrus hops. i get a bit of lemon. the taste is perfectly balanced, and bittered IPA. more of an east coast style with a lemon flavor. the bitterness lasts a while. overall, a great well balanced IPA.

BEERSOLDIER (42) - Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2014
A nice golden amber color that is clear. Has a very nice thick head with small bubbles that holds very well and leaves a nice lace. aroma has hints of spice, citrus, and hops. the taste is semi sweet with a mild hoppiness and hints of ginger and orange. The finish is smooth and crisp. Very enjoyable, I will definitely drink this beer again and recommend it to IPA lovers. a great beer for the price (less than $10 a six pack).

My bottle is a month from the enjoy by date on the bottle neck. A nice blue smoke and a pale yellow pour into a hazy orange body. A full two-finger, white, medium-rocky, very dense and creamy head, it will last a while. The smell is amazing with great hops, yeasts and malt aromas fully developed, and rising out of my glass. The mouth gets an overload of flavor immediately. Its piney and cotton candy, bitter and sweet all at once. It goes down as smooth and creamy as it smells and leaves you with only a dry, slight lingering bitterness and the wanting of another sip. Its probably the best non-imperial IPA available. No home should be without a fresh six pack.

Ar- hops dominate here, lots of citrus and tropical fruit, hints of malt sweetness and alcohol. There's an orange soda thing somewhere in there too. Ap- clear Amber with a string white head. Fl- again hops are the star, soft caramel malt sweetness and citrus and tropical fruit are well balanced by hop bitterness Mf- medium-full bodied, well carbonated, slight alcohol Ov- the beer is very well done. Not a huge hop head but this beer is delicious and very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NTH TRIAL: Pours a brilliant golden color with a slight white head; aroma is the perfect amount of citrus-y, floral hops (definitely there, but nothing overboard); flavor is smooth and delicious with citrus bitterness, biscuity malts, and a great finish that sits in the corners of your mouth. This beer is fantastic, and although it’s ~7% ABV, it’s currently my session beer of choice. It embodies what IPAs should be, and although I wasn’t that excited to hear that Stone had finally made it to Wisconsin, as I sit here in my favorite chair and sip away at a Stone IPA, I’m now completely delighted.

Bottle. Pours a deep gold color with a smallish white head. Aroma of fresh hops. Taste is very hoppy with a strong pine presence. Very fresh taste. Slighter thick palate. The flavor of pine lingers for a long time. A pretty good beer and a great example of an IPA.

12 oz to pint. Nice white frothy head with good retention. The aroma is as expected for a beer with an obvious multitude of hop varieties... extemely stong but not overpowering, a lot of citrus/fruity notes as well as a some caramel and clove notes. The bitterness overpowers the maltiness but in a good way. Has a medium body with a slick texture and a long finish. Very happy with this beer.
