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.

Big bottle. I am a big fan of malty brews, but this is one of the best hoppy beers out there. The brew is bitterly hoppy, tastes hoppy, and smells hoppy. The hop intensity is awesome but not too much. I was very impressed by this wonderful brew. If you have a taste for the hops, by all means, get yourself a big bottle of this beer.

Pours gold with a finger of really soapy white head. Really killer lacing throughout. Nose is ALL floral hops. Yum. Taste is big hops up front but with a deftly executed malt note. Fairly balanced actually. It sits somewhat thin on the tongue and has a nice bracing bitter finish. Pretty much the epitome of the style. Nice beer.

Excellent IPA. Lots of floral hops in the nose and a similar taste. Finishes smooth with a hint of citrus.

Just about as sessionable an ipa as there is. Very piney with a lot of grapefruit. Goes great with anything spicy

Wonderful in every respect, my favorite part has got to be the middle, with it’s brilliant hoppiness and an almost sweet finish

Another perfectly crafted brew from Stone. IPA is not my favorite style, but I like this beer a lot. It goes perfectly with Indian food. The aroma is great, the hops are pronounced and well-balanced with the other complexities of the flavor. A very drinkable, very good beer.

This was the first time I saw Stone products in 12oz. Bottles so, I picked up a 6 pack. It was a bit pricey at $9.00 but, I’ve never been disappointed by a Stone beer so, I tried it. It poured up a nice golden color with a ½ inch head and a very hoppy nose, it obviously received a heavy dose of dry hopping. The body was a bit thin but the flavor and bitterness were right on. I enjoyed it but wouldn’t rank it in my top 10 IPA’s.
