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.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small off white head. Aroma of cascade hops, caramel malt and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy and semi sweet. Another west coast hop monster but I do have to say that this one is relatively balanced though.

Hopdropandfall (8) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2009 does not count
I thought this was a very good IPA but definitely not worth the extra$ IMO. I would rather have a Flying Dod Snake Dog and use the extra cash for a cigar

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Bottle from Cavie. "Why hello, dry hop. You seem to have overrun my aroma." A little lemon aroma as well. Taste is hoppy, but not as much as the aroma. Very citrusy. Lots of side tingle on the tongue.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 4th June 2008. Easy drinking IPA. Nice fruity hops with a medium level of bitterness. Lighter palate than a lot of IPAs. 3.4

13th April 2013
A much fresher bottle. Hazy amber beer. tidy white head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Thin creamy malt with mild caramel. Good piney hops, rich and bitter. Lesser citrus and whisper of skunk. Dry minerally finish with some fresh hop sting. Tasty IPA but a bit dry.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Pours a crystal clear straw yellow scarily like macro swill. Smallish snow white head clings and leaves massive lacing. Honestly, looks like Miller Lite. Even my wife said "I thought you don’t drink that cheap stuff." Nose dominate by citrus and malt. Classic one dimensional IPA aroma. Crisp flavor of grapefruit. Strong bitterness at the finish. Lively mouth feel. High carbonation level is just right for the style. A pretty decent IPA. Ugly as hell, but still very tasty.

PolishHammer (124) - Norwalk, Connecticut, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Super hop-bomb....watch out! A lot of bittering hops used in this, but they do seem to mellow a bit as you drink more. Great PNW hop aroma and flavors, complex...good malt backbone. Not the cleanest hop flavor in the world, but a really enjoyable beer from a great brewery.

TheMantle (37) - New York, USA - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2010 Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. The best by date gives is about a month and a half away. Pours a nice translucent deep orange, with a small quickly receding white head. Smells great being dominated by citrus hops. Taste is hops, hops, hops. Also a bit spicy and citrus are coming through, without much of a malt backbone to back it up. Ends crisp with lingering hops.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2010
Bottle, shared with hobbersr and Cole. Ours clear amber, medium head, spotty lacing. Nose is super grassy, and frankly really smells like pot! Plenty of spicy, piney hops, notes of anise, and there is malt lurking in the background as well. Flavors of pot, very mild malt, pine resin, simple bitter finish.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2010
Bottle. Medium head with a clear golden appearance. Some bitterness with not as hoppy as some of their beers. Lingering bitterness. A straightforward, uncomplicated example of this style.

TheHopster (749) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2010
(bottle) Poured with diminishing head and decent lacing. I feel this is a little overrated. I would call this an above average IPA. Very hoppy and slightly bitter with a long finish. This is good, but there’s some better IPA’s out there. Smooth with no alcohol flavor.
