COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look up "hops" in the dictionary and youíll 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 beerís crisp and refreshing bitter character.

1PL 6 Fl Oz. Bottle from a grocery shop in San Francisco during our visit in USA2013. Clear golden, light orange body with a large rough off-white head. Nose of exotic hops, some pine in it. Verry bitter, fruity hops. Not bad, but not my favorite ***

Aroma is light citrus tropical fruit aroma hopping. Appearance is crystal clear golden with small off white head. Taste is very well rounded. Grapefruit hop bitterness closely followed by a nice caramel honey malt. Mildly undesirable chalkiness. Palate medium full. Lingering grapefruit bitterness with a light sweet malt keeping it in balance. Overall a nice IPA. I expect more in the aroma for the style, but still enjoyable.

TAP at Chez Moeder Lambic during "Moeder Lambic Vs. Stone". Only found back scores, not ratings.

It is a great beer. No doubt about it, but lack of body is a bit annoying. Color bit too light. Plane bitternes. And aroma is nothing memorable!

Iím surprised by the 100 rating on this beer. It is definitely lacking on the hop front. Smooth but as their signature IPA it should have plenty of hops.

Iím a huge fan of Stone, and their Ruination IPA is probably my favorite beer, period. But I felt this let me down a little. *Head* - thin, sparkling *Color* - Transparent, a blush amber *Nose* - Powerful acidity in high tones, bittersweet, bearish, with a hint of sourness. *1st Impression* - smooth and sweet before the hops charges in. Unusually "sparkly" sensation on the tongue, very crisp. *Middle* - roaring surge of hops, gentle decay. *After* - diminishes too rapidly after the glorious middle, but this quality adds to smoothness and drinkability. *Overall* - This beer didnít quite live up to my expectations. It was very enjoyable for 80% of the experience, but the ending left me longing for more. This is a great beer, but I felt a little disappointed.

On Draft. Wasnít a big fan of this. My friend who was drinking it with me said he had had it before and it tasted much better previously. Maybe I had a bad batch, will rerate later. But the sample I had was very flavorless; some hop presence, but very watery.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a small head. Hoppy with notes of citrus, fruits and yeasts. A bit thin and mild.

Crisp with a definite cereal taste. Hops have only a medium bite . color is dark yellow. The flavors do not linger much on the tongue. A starter Stone beer for sure.
