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.

An attractive looking hazey orange beer with quickly dissipating white froth. Brilliant nose of brewery air, fresh picked hops, pine, grapefruit, and apricot. Balanced yet bitterly hoppy with enough malt sweetness to successfully bring out the complex flavors of the hops. Finish is crisp and superbly fresh tasting. Certainly an I.P.A. to look up to.

This stuff is straight AMAZING! Fruity aroma, smells like 5:00 on a Friday after a long week. Smells citrus, fruit, tart. Looks like beer. Blah, Blah. The flavor is citrus, buttery, goes down like gravy. Peppery bitter with a pleasant aftertaste. Full malty body that is truly staggering in complexity. It’s like a fruity, hoppy, bitter milkshake. (does that even sound good?) Very Very good.

While this is good...it does not deserve the 100 points rating for a single IPA. I got it fresh from the brewery and, while it is a good beer, there is much to be desired. Its dry hops create a good bitterness and the malt is sufficient but there is not enough of either to consider it a great beer. The balance is good but both could be stronger for the style.

Excellent IPA. Piney aroma with a hint of sweetness. Medium bodied with a long finish. A very hoppy IPA.

Stone Brewing has yet to fail to impress me. This is probably the best IPA that I have ever had. An in your face kind of hoppiness that you rarely find, even in other IPA's.

The best IPA I've tried, and the first I've ever really liked. Beautiful color, although the head didn't last as long as I would have liked. As with most Stone brews, the closer I got to the bottom of the glass, the more I enjoyed it.

This is my favorite beer. The hops, lord this has the best hoppy taste ever, very complicated, multilayered. Head is great.
