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.

VoodooBear (46) - San Juan, - MAY 19, 2013
Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with an "enjoy by" date printed on the neck. Served in a Samuel Adams pint glass. Appearance: One finger head goes down eventually and stays there until the end. It has a clear, bright gold color, and leaves some very nice lacing. Smell: The smell is fantastic, with a dominating herbal hop scent and some pine, fruit and spice notes present too. Taste: This beer has a big hop character, overwhelmingly so. Itís very herbal, spicy and bitter. Youíve gotta love hops to really appreciate the details and character in this. If you donít itíll be just another (albeit good) strong, bitter brew. Moutfeel: It feels creamy, full bodied and smooth. It leaves a tingling sensation on the palate thatís quite curious. Overall: An amazing brew in every single aspect. If you love hops, IPAís or just something crisp, bitter and challenging, youíll love this beer. If you donít, youíll probably be put off by the intensity of it all.

JonnyConga (68) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Pours hazy orange peach. Aroma of hops, peaches and citrus but not as strong as expected. Taste is hops and bitterness. A great IPA but doesn't blow me away. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Day 3 of my IPA Advent calendar. Bottle rating. Much better on tap. I love Stone but in a month of IPA drinking this didn't hold up in uniqueness and felt tamer than I recall on tap. I plan to re-do this as it seems odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great IPA - a standard and for a good reason. Hints of grass, citrus, and extremely hoppy and delicious on the tongue that lingers after the finish. Extremely drinkable too.

Straight from the fridge to a large Sam Adams glass. Pours a nice golden color with a very nice hop scent and great hop taste. They say it's dry hopped for a couple weeks and it gives a great taste. Nice beer, nice aftertaste, a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: nice clear yellow beer with white head and minimal lacing A: grassy nose and piney hops T: a very good IPA. A little sweetness and good bitterness M: appropriate carbonation for the style. I would like a little more to cut through the maltiness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

writerljberg (627) - Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. A: Clear copper color with a thin fizzy white head. Bubbles throughout. No lacing. N: Tasty hop smell: grapefruit, pine, earth, and pineapple. Leaves and some Mary Jane. Cracker and biscuit backbone. T: Sharply bitter with a touch of malt sweetness. M: Resinous and razor dryness. Medium body. O: A much better beer than Ruination. The Stone yeast characteristics accentuate this one, and the hop profile is more pronounced. Iím actually surprised.

Saeglopur (250) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Deep amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, pineapple, red berries, pine, some candy. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, peach, red berries, grass, caramel, very hoppy and smooth at the same time. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and it finishes bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, pine and peach notes. Wow, this is a tasty IPA, that offers almost everything at the same time: slightly sharp hop bite and a lot of fruitiness, complexity and high drinkability and most of all a perfect balance! This really is an accomplished example of this style!

Tap. 10 oz pour at new bohemia. Light gold with white head and good lacing. Grapefruit aroma. Very hoppy and super dry throughout. This one doesnít pull any punches.
