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.

scotchzombie (422) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pours cloudy orange-gold like nectar. Mostly white head settles quickly to a nice bubbled rim with a yeasty coating. Aroma wafts mildly sweet floral citrus hops and bread. Crisp to the palate and mildly carbonated. Orangey citrus and bitter hop city. Somewhat creamy but finishes dry. A little grass and lemon. Fruit flavors somewhat lacking. For bitter hop lovers to be sure and a reference IPA. Ain't no Two-Hearted though and probably somewhat over-rated in my book. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nordcore (1152) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Golden, hazy with large short lived white head. Lots of Hoppy aroma with some citrus and spices sence. Bitter taste with a nice long Hoppy end.

ChrisFields (95) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours more golden than copper with a nice rocky head. Aroma is hoppy citrus. Has a nice malty undertone with your standard grapefruit WC hop flavor. Bitterness is pretty high for a non-imperial IPA. Overall, good. Like most of Stone’s offerings.

Theydon_Bois (12738) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
The last of the 1,000+ ratings Stone beers I’ve had many times before but never rated ! Keg at Stone Brewing San Diego Airport, 22/04/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains well. Nose is bitter citrics, juicy hops, bitter orange, grass, grapefruit. Taste is more agressive than the aroma suggests, bitter hops, grapefrit, light pine, toasted bread, orange pith, grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressve hop bitterness in the close. Well balanced easy drinking IPA.

Franzen (399) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Faint hop aroma, mainly mango, probably a bit to old. Golden clear, white head. Really bitter, just enough maltiness to back up the bitterness without beeing noticed. Light body average carbonation. Nice taste but could have done with more aroma, probably lacks due to age

commonshawn (664) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Tap. 10 oz pour at new bohemia. Light gold with white head and good lacing. Grapefruit aroma. Very hoppy and super dry throughout. This one doesn’t pull any punches.

JonnyConga (120) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Pours hazy orange peach. Aroma of hops, peaches and citrus but not as strong as expected. Taste is hops and bitterness. A great IPA but doesn't blow me away. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une très belle bière avec plein d’agrumes dans l’arôme. Plein de corps, un peu comme une IPA impériale mais moins onctueux. Très bonne.
