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.

Pours golden with an orange haze. Nose is citrus with hints of honey, some pineapple.. Fresh mouthfeel, crisper palate than most IPA’s (?) but bitter overtone from beginning to finish.

PhillyCraft (2851) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Bottle that has to be fresh. 12 oz. Pours a slightly hazy orange, with a tall, frothy, rich snowy white head. Aroma of frash dry hops, lemon zest, grapefruit, oranges, and herbal/grassy notes. Intensely full body, especially for an IPA, with a tangy, moderately funky palate. Crisp, bitter, ever-so-slightly dry finish. Excellent IPA from Stone.

The logo for this San Diego brewery is a gargoyle, those eerie stone creatures one sees perched along the roofs of great cathedrals, where they serve as rain spouts. Why? This is unimportant; what is important is that Stone produces great craft brew; this IPA is one of the best. It begins in a luxuriant froth, spongy and shimmering, and slowly subsides beneath the glass rim, forming a sudsy crown atop a cloudy pool of gold. The nose detects faint whiffs of apple supplemented by myriad notes of butter. However, the action occurs on the palate; there is an initial citrus explosion, containing various shards of lime and orange, which fades in a quick, but intense, bitterness provided by the generous dry hopping. Pleasant well-balanced mouthfeel brings to close a satisfying quaff and an important reminder of how great craft brew should taste. Still, you gotta love them gargoyles.

kambei70 (503) - - JAN 19, 2013
2013 bottle to pint glass. Pours hazy lemon yellow with orange highlights and decent white, foamy head. Aroma is a combination of piney and grassy hops with a lemon citrus smell and some floral. Taste is the same piney/grassy bitterness with some bread and a little citrus. A slight soapy quality. Mouthfeel is fuller than expected. Overall, the bitterness is a little to intense for my taste but a decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Juusto (37) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Bitter to the max... no, really! :D Medium head with lacing. Amber orange. Palate little dissapointing, but still decent. Aromas of pine, citrus, fruity... Nice "on the glass" printed bottle.
