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.

This beer is the definition of IPA. No uncharecteristic flavors like the Maritime IPA, just liquid hops. What is particularly lovely about this brew is the enourmous hop-nose: I spent 5 minutes just SMELLING the glass! Obviously a lot of dry-hopping, but hops is the main ingrediant at every level of this beer. The flavor backs up the hops with a strong enough bite and carbonation to distinguish it from Tree’s IPA, which has no body behind the hops. I had the Full Sail IPA the night before, and almost poured the bottle out for lack of hops. God bless Stone Brewing for this perfect beverage!

Smaak: Bitter,  grassig en netelige hops, mouten, iets karamel, citrus, grapefruit , pijnboom/hars. Body is medium tot dun, voldoende koolzuur en de afdronk is vrij lang bitter en iets droog.

explosivedog (195) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 Taster at Erzbierschof (thanks to staff). Aroma is sweet and pine with a really dry almost dusty profile. Flavour is big hops, especially for a non imperial. There’s plenty of sweet resin and a nice bitter finish. Fairly standard for the style but really nice.
