COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
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.

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.

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.
