COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
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.

bottle. very hoppy. i enjoyed this beer but apparently not as much as everyone else. The bitterness was a little overpowering for me.

WillieV (197) - Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle: Poured a hazy light brown with a semi white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Good solid flavor but could be a bit stronger considering the rest of Stone’s lineup.

It’s a good beer. Top 3 not sure. Aroma is what should be expected. I would buy it again

puboflyons (2475) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 30, 2008
From a 12 fl. oz (S) bottle with no expiration date or lot code. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with some off-white head. Good aroma of hops. Taste of hops and a little bit of citrus. This was not as strong as some IPA’s I have tried and in that regard, I liked it a lot.

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.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Poured cloudy yellow with an off-white head. Grapefruit aroma. Light and crisp with notes of citrus and grapefruit. Not overly bitter. Decent, but I do not quite get the hype.

reggiedunlop (3414) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2009
pours a slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. aroma has lots of grapefruit, some pineapple, a touch of spice, and the faintest hin of some doughy maltiness. flavor has some maltiness...pilsner malt?...up front with spicy grapefruit overlapping it. mouthfeel is smooth with a lingering fruity and dry aftertaste. very nice but not the best ipa i’ve had.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
Bouteille. Dégusté avec french tickler et Agaguk. Biere de couleur caramel clair avec un mince collet très collant. Odeur d’épinette, ail, carotte et épices. Gout floral, sucre, épices et un soupçon de sel.

So this is my first Stone beer, and I would have to say that I am not overly impressed, however not disappointed. It poured a hazy straw yellow with an eggshell white colored head. Aromas were mostly hoppy. I didn’t really pick up on any citrus like I do with many other IPA’s. Taste sort of translated, it was pretty hoppy and had a sort of bitter taste to it, with absolutely no citrus taste. Overall it is a decent IPA, however I like them to have a bit more balance to them than this. I will try some other stuff from Stone :)
