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.

Pours orange, white head. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit Taste, hoppy and fruity, nice sugar, light caramel malts, with bitter hoppy finish. Just not a big fan of the West coast style IPA.

bottle, pours light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is very fresh smelling, almost like when I homebrew. Flavor is nice and balanced, good malt richness and sweet flavors with bitter and citrus flavors from the hops. Highly drinkable.

cgreb (399) - Marburg, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2010
on tap - orange amber beer with almost no foam. Strong lemony hops aroma. Flavour is very bitter, long lasting. Could be a little bit more balanced.

A- Transparent medium amber body. An aggressive pour only produced a head of 1 finger. The tiny bubbles constantly rising to the top (which is great because I’m drinking this from a standard pint glass) give this one a decent head retention. Eventually a thin collar remains and no lacing is left behind in the glass. S- Wonderful bouquet of citrus, floral, and earthy hops with a sweet caramel malt backbone. T- A balance of herbal and citrus hop taste upfront with a weak caramel malt backbone. The finish is mostly herbal hops with a caramel malt sweetness. Lingering bitterness is aggressive and somewhat unpleasant. Also lingering is an herbal hop taste, caramel malt sweetness, and alcohol warmth. P- Aggressive carbonation and oily body of medium thickness. O- This is a decent IPA but not one of my favorites. I was surprised that the alcohol was detected in this medium ABV brew. This one is full of hop flavor and bitterness. I may revisit this one again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-06-2007 15:47:34

Great beer. A hallmark of the style in America. A true measuring stick. Lots of big hop, great bitterness in the finish and ultimately refreshing. A super beer, we are all lucky to have as a main stay of craft brewing.

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.
