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.

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2004
This is a new IPA, sporting a gargoyle emblem. A transparent bottle that really shows big bubbles in there. A bit dry aftertaste a surprise but otherwise a nice drink. Can be session starter or go with food. Hops and citrus. However bitterness.

GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. Found at Tyler’s Bottle Shop. Pours a clear gold with moderate carbonation and a medium, white head. Pretty much all around the Ruination times 0.5. Even though I enjoy it a little less, in terms of everyday drinking this is more palatable. The hops insanity is very much toned down here allowing you to enjoy the citrus aroma a little more. The body is smoother and the aftertaste more neutral in contrast to the Ruination’s twenty minute lingering bitterness. For 70 IBU’s this is pretty sweet and creamy- no hops onslaught like you would expect.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. A copper coloured beer with a soapy white head. The aroma is pleasantly hoppy not too aggressive with orange and pink grapefruit notes. The taste is very nice with more hops and orange flavours. An easy drinking IPA. Score 3.7
Subsequent rating also scored 3.7.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. I didn’t think this stacked up to Ruination but it is still a contender. Dry, biting hops keep it interesting but it is still easy to drink. Keep ’em coming Stone!

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Nice looking orange-golden colour with a thick lasting off-white head. Nice citrus grapefruit, pine, resiny aroma with some spicy character as well. Flavour is surprisingly sweet and fruity with plenty of malt to back up the hops. Some cookie dough character also ends up in here. Nowhere near as bitter as I had been expecting but a fantastic well balanced IPA.

Rune (8500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle at Henrik Øl og Vinstove in Bergen, shared with Elisabeth. Unclear golden. A few patches on the surface. Sweet and bitter aroma of citric hops. Well blended flavour of grapefruit, lemon and orange shells. Malty sweetness beneath. Decent dry bitter ending. A real pleaser to the palate (18.06.2009).

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2005
Bottle. Hazy orange/gold with a large head. Aromas are caramel, pine and spices, quite sweet and surprisingly floral - also, alcohol. Flavours are caramel malts with pepper and spices, followed by bitter hops. Lots of pepper on the finish. Very good.
