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.

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.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2008
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 (3469) - 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.

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 :)

cmonster (998) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Bomber served in a tulip. Hazy light orange color. Medium off-white head. Nose of sweet citrus (tangerine) and fresh pine. Refreshing and crisp. The bitterness dominates overall. Medium body. Not overly creamy, oily, thick, thin, or sticky. A good balance in mouthfeel. Smooth. This is good brew. Hold it!... As the beer warms the nose develops a heavy artificial floral soap fragrance. The anti-bacterial foaming kind with Aloe Vera and Vitamin B5. Eeehhhck!! Just lost some points. I will drink it faster next time.

downender (7040) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle from Realale.com. Golden in colour with a big white head and slight carbonation. Sharp, grapefruit and pine aroma with some balancing malt. Flavour had some sweet, butterscotch malt, some citrus and resin hops and a decent dry finish. Very good.

bleeng (1583) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bomber. Hazy gold with a nice thick small white head. Nose of citrusy hops with some lingerng sweetness. Taste is a nice hop profile, quite bitter but with little malt balance. The true hop bomb. Drinkable but one dimensional.
