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.

Great aroma and taste. Initial bitterness is refreshing and the beer holds its flavor to the bottom of the glass.

Dégustée à Los Angeles lors d’une soirée bien chaude... Très bonne IPA, du corps, des arômes d’agrume, de la longueur en bouche... On dirait presque une double.

RafeAU (115) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2014
Great hop aroma and nice appearance. A little sweetness and a mildly bitter finish that is the perfect balance for me. I love this IPA. bottle pour at greg’s new york pad.

An excellent example of a massed produced, but very high quality IPA. Definitely one of my favorite IPAs out there. The aroma after the initial pour is excellent, though I did not have proper glassware(might be even better with a good glass), it pours a beautiful golden honey color. Lots of hoppy aroma before your first sip. Taste is very complex, lots citrus fruity notes, an initial sweetness which turns slightly bitter and then all biter after taste (but in a very good way). I paired this with a spicy Chinese dish. But then kept drinking it long after I finished the dinner. I’ll definitely choose this IPA again!

Lemke10 (794) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2014
This pours a semi-clear golden yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is bold with hops. The taste is bitter, dry, and perhaps one of the best IPA brews on the market. Outstanding and a must try!

Bottle. Only a faint aroma even poured into a glass. Light and citrusy up front, which fads to a nice bitter finish. Definitely a more citrusy IPA, lacking in malt balance. A good beer, but I really don’t understand the hype.

Reviewed from notes. Bottle poured into a Hair of the Dog tulip glass.

A - Pours hazy orange with a nice frothy pillow of one and a half finger tall white head leaving light rings of lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of pungent hops; most notably citric and pine; sweet caramel malt, and some fruity esters. Good overall balance of sweet and bitter.

T - Starts off with a nice punch of pungent citric hops slowly giving way to a mix of sweet caramel malt, pine, and some fruity esters. I like how no one flavors dominates the others, it makes it very easy to drink. The finish has some light hop bitterness, lingering for a short period of time. This is one easy drinking, enjoyable, IPA.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Very smooth, crisp, feel with some lingering bitterness in the finish.

O - Pretty good. I could drink this regularly but when you compare it to some of the other offerings available locally it really comes up short. Still a good beer tho.

Very nice bitter yellow to orange beer with huge white head. Aroma of hops by resin. Clean yeast character. Good IPA.

R4N5H (85) - SINGAPORE - SEP 7, 2014
On tap, pint at Smith Street Taps, Singapore. Citrus nose, light fragrance of citrus and pine. Pale amber when poured with a medium sized head which lasts and leaves some nice lacing. Lovely taste of grapefruit, malt. Hoppy and bitter - good balance. A nice West Coast IPA.

vadie (712) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Une très belle bière avec plein d’agrumes dans l’arôme. Plein de corps, un peu comme une IPA impériale mais moins onctueux. Très bonne.

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
Classic West Coast IPA with sticky, off-white, stable, thick head and clear orange blonde colour. Malty nose with nice fruitiness, impressions of peach, honey, apple, caramel, all beautifully blended in a powerful, oily and resinous, peppery hoppiness. Soft malty onset with lively fruitiness, light caramel, quickly overcome by a wonderfully resinous, sticky, grassy, spicy hop bitterness, finishing very long and dry. Another great one.
