COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and you’ll 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 beer’s crisp and refreshing bitter character.

First off this is an excellent brew to start someone on the path down real beer. The aroma is the first thing you notice, very full and gets you excited about your first drink. Looks good in the glass, I prefer a glass mug out of the freezer, has a good head without too much foam. For having a strong (and I mean that in the best way possible) aroma, the taste is not to bitter which makes it accessible to most people who appreciate good beer. It finishes very well leaving you wanting more. You still taste it afterwards, but in a good way. Overall, this is one of the best brews out there hands down. It is a good starter beer for anyone wanting to explore what real beer can be.

The logo for this San Diego brewery is a gargoyle, those eerie stone creatures one sees perched along the roofs of great cathedrals, where they serve as rain spouts. Why? This is unimportant; what is important is that Stone produces great craft brew; this IPA is one of the best. It begins in a luxuriant froth, spongy and shimmering, and slowly subsides beneath the glass rim, forming a sudsy crown atop a cloudy pool of gold. The nose detects faint whiffs of apple supplemented by myriad notes of butter. However, the action occurs on the palate; there is an initial citrus explosion, containing various shards of lime and orange, which fades in a quick, but intense, bitterness provided by the generous dry hopping. Pleasant well-balanced mouthfeel brings to close a satisfying quaff and an important reminder of how great craft brew should taste. Still, you gotta love them gargoyles.

I feel like I can say im an experienced beer drinker as i’ve tried over 300 beers. This is probably my favorite IPA rich in flavor and smell and goes down smooth with a little bit of hoppy bitterness. Definitely will be having again and recomment to any IPA lover

Good IPA. I drank this with a family Italian dinner and it was perfect. I could still taste it after dinner.

The smell is a lot of citrus and pine, slightly yeasty. This pours light orange/yellow with a white head. Tastes great, it starts and finishes with a consistently hoppy dryness. The flavors are typical; slightly hoppy, piney with citrus overtones (lemon). A solidly brewed IPA with an enjoyable consumption experience.
