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.

I was not thoroughly impressed with this beer, the aroma is there but only after pouring it out of the bottle, smelling it after opening it left me with virtually no impression of the beer. The strong bitter impression I expect from a good IPA just isnít strong enough, itís almost too smooth. Perhaps Iíve been drinking too much Dog Fish Head and Great Divide, but this just does not stack up for me.

A very lovely beer, but for me it takes a back seat to the Arrogant Bastard.

This is the best beer hands down. I drink at about 15 pints of this stuff a week. Very hoppy and bitter. umm! If you can, drink it at the brewery from the tap. It is so much better fresh.

Pint 6oz bottle. Thick white head and great aroma, not overdone on the alcohol percentage. Overall a good IPA, definitely worth the five bucks.

bottle, hoppy aroma with good lacing. Touch of carbonation and grapefruit undertones make this an excellent offering for sessions. Good malt finish. One of my favorites

It's very refined, but almost too "warm" around the edges. The clear taste is superb, but not acidic enough for me. It needs more "edge".

The first word that comes to mind when imbibing this wonderful beer is power. Everything about it screams "more". Its hard to believe a beer that is so hoppy can be so well balanced and malty. The mouth feel is incredible as each bite, er...umm. drink is absolutely filled with richness and delight. A true to style IPA that could only have been made with an American Flare.

A well crafted beer. From the Head, Color and Aroma to the great taste. Great balance. I sometimes find the hops overwhelming the body in many IPAs. One quibble is that I prefer East Kent goulding Hops. Currently, though, this is my favoite IPA. Pizza Portís Frankís Double IPA is competition. Oh, one other thing, this is DRY, although you wonít know it till you get up off the Bar Stool.

Bitter, bitter. Just past my bitter limit, I stress just. I knew going in that this should be expected. Good flavour and aroma. Still a very good beer. I would like to try this with different food to get a better sense of the beer.
