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.

drank in comparisson to the 60 minute IPA and Squall 90 minute IPA and Stone Ruination and Stone IPA. its cloudy, super frothy and more orange than the others. wow, can you say pine cones, booze and fruity hops? I say there is little malts in this one, big leafy pine cones on the mouth, I find it has a sort of wet rock or chalky note on the palate as well. it is super hoppy but I find it is lacking in complexity, there are no malts big fruity hops with good carbonation. A wonderful brew but can i say it is actually kinda almost just too much hops and not much else?

Like IPA’s?? Then you will like this one. On tap @ The Press Room. Pours golden hue with a white, foamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops and biscuit malt. Light-medium, tangy body. Citrusy hops dominate the flavor with a biscuit malt provide good balance. Finish is long lasting, dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 Complex hop flavors here, big bitterness at the end, that ramps up afterwards. Not balanced with malts though, decent

Nice hoppy aroma with a bit of malt to back it up, very hoppy taste, bitter hop finish, solid IPA.

dukeredhair (242) - California, USA - APR 12, 2011
It’s become a standard for California IPA’s. Aroma is hops, pine citrus. Appearance is gold clear with a nice white head. taste is hops. Where I feel like this falls flat is it lacks a nice smooth malt backdrop, it tastes a bit like hop tea. Palate is also a bit thin. Overall a good refreshing IPA but nowhere near the best.

LetsGoState (578) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Appearance is clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma is pine hops with a little sweetness. Taste is a hint of sweet malts, but mostly earth hops and medium bitterness. Overall very well balanced and probably the best IPA I have tried.

Has all the characteristics of a great IPA but the finish, like a lot of stone beers is unpleasantly bitter and lasting. I like a good bitter bite in IPAs but this one is just a bit lingering and makes for a rough drink imo. The hop flavors are great with citrus and pine but the finish is bad.

Little to no head.Aroma is mild to nothing some fruit almost bublegum/yeast esters? Not a fresh beer maybe im assuming.Dry crisp bitter drinkable. Finishes with some malt sweetness- lingering bitterness.Reminds me of a few extra pale ales ive recently had.I guess this would be west coast ipa style so its a pretty classic good tasting ipa. I generally fall for the more balanced malty ipa’s but enjoy these lighter dryer hop forward ipa’s too.Just not a memeralbly good ipa.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 rerated on May 3rd 2012 - 22oz bottle - pours clear caramel with rich white head and some lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Flavors adds caramel and lots of resin with hints of orange peel. Taste is definitely bitter with some sweetness. medium to full body with sticky texture. This is almost violently hoppy. Draft in a pint glass - pours hazy orange with lacing white head. Nose is citrus and grass. aroma is hops of a pine-y nature. Aftertaste is hoppy. OK this is way overrated. 6/3/8/3/11
