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.

VoodooBear (49) - 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. It’s very herbal, spicy and bitter. You’ve gotta love hops to really appreciate the details and character in this. If you don’t it’ll be just another (albeit good) strong, bitter brew. Moutfeel: It feels creamy, full bodied and smooth. It leaves a tingling sensation on the palate that’s quite curious. Overall: An amazing brew in every single aspect. If you love hops, IPA’s or just something crisp, bitter and challenging, you’ll love this beer. If you don’t, you’ll probably be put off by the intensity of it all.

chinchill (2277) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
A pint on tap [from notes]. . Arrived with a billowing head that was exceptionally thick and creamy. It left loads of sticky lacing. Citrus hops with traces of alcohol and malts in the nose. The beer also has a strong citrus component on reaching the tongue, but this becomes more piney mid-taste. Strikingly sweet when it hits the tongue, with no immediate hop hit following ... this does appear in the surprisingly hoppy finish. Thus, this IPA creates a striking and unusual (well, exaggerated) flavor dynamic.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours golden with a thick white head. On the nose it has plenty of citrus and pine, pine apple and a slight honey sweetness. Carbonation is moderate with a medium body. Taste is resinous, citrusy and grassy with a lingering bitter and dry finish.

fkoolen (386) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle at home, enjoy by 02/15/15. Clear golden colour, white creamy head. Strong piny, resinous character hops, grassy, and nicely fruity too with orange peel, grapefruit and citrus tones along with light some sweet tropical fruits. Long aftertaste, especially the bitterness lingers. Firm body (especially considering "only" 6.9% abv), medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Good IPA, crisp and bitter.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 18, 2015
Enjoy by 10.15.14. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 08.22.14. A: Tangerine, lemon, and orange. A: 1 finger head. See through straw yellow body. T: Tangerine, lemon, and orange dominate. P: Creamy. O: This was extremely good. It was very citrusy with a candied tropical fruit flavor and a tart aftertaste. This is the epitome of a West Coast IPA.

vandc01 (122) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured from a 12oz bottle with a enjoy by date of 2/2/2015. I’ve had this beer before, but never reviewed it. Aroma - tropical fruit - typical Stone beer. Appearance - clear golden color. Super clear! Taste - great tasting, smooth...delicous. Palate - perfect bite at the end of the tongue - love it. Overall - Stone rarely makes a bad beer, and this is another great beer by them.

Excellente IPA pour ceux qui aime le style très tranchant et belle amertume. Très bien équilibrée. Belle arôme. On sent plus que bien les 90 IBUs. J’ai adoré cette IPA, un classique.

maekchu (2356) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Somehow hadn’t gotten around to this one. Sharp tangy grapefruit nose, some thick caramel behind, a bit of stinky fruit, too. Light copper/orange color, thin head, some lace. Tasty hopping right away, begins to balance in mid, but hops re-emerge, with a bit of burn in finish. Medium body, a bit of hop texture. Well, nothing is really outstanding, but somehow it all adds up. Pretty damn good (and I’m not a huge fan of the brewery, overall).
