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.

Beer has a hazy yellow color with a small head in the glass. Aroma has the strong hoppiness from the glass that you would expect. Taste continues with the hops but it also has some citrus to go along with it. Long bitter finish.

A very strong hop flavor to this beer, it was very bitter and stayed bitter through out the after taste and then some. But this one was a little more pleasant than the Ruination, but still would not seek it out.

big aroma, not sure it’s pleasant. lighter color than many IPAs, dark yellow. lingering hop flavor is a plus. I can’t identify the hop flavor, not fruity, not spicey, not overly earthy. hops might be a little piney to earthy, but not with a bad aftertaste. malt is hard to identify, but it doesn’t take over the beer.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Pours a clear, peach-amber with a frothy eggshell head. Aroma is sweet citrus, sweet malt, orange marmalade, pine, english yeast, and a touch of stone fruit. Flavor is pine, wet limestone, underripe stone fruit, citrus hops, english yeast, and a touch of toffee. Palate is light to medium bodied, neutral entry, dry from there on out, dry finish and a medium carbonation. Really nice IPA, but the English-y yeast notes are a little off for the American IPA malt and hop profiles..

355ml bottle. Pours bright gold with a medium frothy head. Aroma is pineapple, mango and a little bread. Taste is piney to start. Creamy malt and a strong bitter finish.

fiercepanda (505) - Missouri, USA - JUL 15, 2011
A clear reddish orange beer with a moderate off-white head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is definitely hoppy, with pine, apricot, and grapefruit detectable. The flavor has a nice dose of bitterness and some pine and grassy notes. The body is quite nice, allowing the bitterness to remain on the tongue long after you swallow. Still, I find it lacking a bit in actual flavor, and perhaps it’s just the bottle I got, but the aroma was very faint. I’ll have to re-rate at a later date.

Bottle. A light powered hoppy aroma with muted vegetable scent mixed in, kind of like a broccoli fart. Not too impressive in strength. The appearance was better than the aroma, a tangerine honey with a nice big head that melted into a ring, decent lacing as well. The palate was a medium body with a sticky texture. The taste wasn’t as hoppy as I’d expected for an IPA, and I picked up that strange broccoli fart aftertaste similar to the aroma. Not sure if this was a bad bottle, but I expected more.
