By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

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.

Keg @ The Euston Tap. Deep amber orange with a big white head. The nose is filled with mango, pinapple, seagrass and wood. Hoppy indeed. The taste is medium bitter, some sweet juicy hop notes. Plenty of tropical fruit with a sugary sweet finish. Nicely balanced, hop-forward indeed, but not overly so. Overall, a very nice IPA. I can only imagine how good it is when super fresh.

PhillyCraft (3800) - 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.

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
