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.

Fratto (2590) - 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 donít 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 (3880) - 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 (791) - 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 thereís some better IPAís out there. Smooth with no alcohol flavor.

Beeronaut (176) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2010
12oz bottle. Man, this is so controversial, but this has to be the first Stone beer I really wasnít that blown away by... Itís one of the classics, and I still hadnít had a chance to try it, so I had to give it a go. I have a feeling this could have been a slightly old bottle, or maybe just an off bottling, so I have given it the benefit of the doubt and will definitely give it another go if I get another chance. Pours out deep golden with a dense off-white head which rests well for a time then dissipates. Aroma is very citrusy with lots of grapefruit and resinous earthy notes - reminds me of Jaipur or maybe Punk. So far so good, but the flavour was a bit weird, a lot of soapy notes, even a mild detergenty character, then some more citrus and lots of earthy hops, finish is bitter, but not necessarily pleasant... More odd soap notes. All in all a little upset as I love stone, and Iím sure this is normally a great beer, but in this case this was not that pleasant.

Golden honey in color with a very thick, soapy looking inviting head. Clean pine/mint hoppy aroma. Good bitter hops flavor up front with toffee malt notes following in the aftertaste. Overall, itís good
