COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

12 oz. Bottle. Beautiful white, lacey head and a hazy, golden color. Strong aroma of citrus, even when nose is feet away from the glass. Noted stong pine aroma when nose was closer to the beer. Flavor was dry and hoppy, with grapefruit notes. Nice long finish on this beer. Glad I have five more to drink.

Stumbled on this at a good restaurant in Akron. This is one great IPA. Great hop aroma and a nice crisp taste. Not over the top and not too pine resin-like. A little different that some of my other favorite IPAs. A little smoother to drink.

12-oz., thanks to MTDSHN--thanks, Mike, this stuff is incredible! Pours the cloudy amber with the moussy white head. Lots of floral/orange/sherbet hops on the nose. Creamy body. Good chew to the mouthfeel; pleasantly high-moderate carb. Lots of citrus (orange, a little lemon, slight grapefruit) through the palate. Grea thop variety and a nice sweet easy drinking malt backbone. 6 ounces into the first one, itís obvious that this is one of the great session beers of all time. Not to mention probably the greatest label--no shilly shallying around, just a great image and the name.

Bottle. Pours a nice deep golden brown with little head or lacing. Aromas of hop, sugar, quite a bit of spice (cinnamon). Flavor is fairly sweet with a good hop background that leaves a somewhat drying aftertaste. An excellent IPA and a good example without overdoing it in the hops.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Pours a hazy light orange color with thin white head. Good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, hops, grass. Full balanced flavor with a citrus hop punch, mostly grapefruit, with a nice hop bitterness. Nice malt background to give it an even sweetness and round out a really fine IPA. Very drinkable.

This is the way that an American IPA should be. Has a great hoppy taste, almost a candied citrus fruit taste. The head is a creamy chewy white. The nearly perfect American IPA!

UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottle. Strong hoppy grapefruit aroma, clean, fresh, and yes, oily. Hazy orange pour with light visicarb and a bubbly/fluffy and lacing beige head. Very crisp, extremely dry taste. Grapefruit and citrus, hop overload, woody, medium-full soft body. Chewy, spicy malt. Floral sweetness and a little mouth-puckering tang. Grapefruit lingers long into the aftertaste. Straightforward, but very, very flavorful and well crafted - flawless, even. Has sort of a playful lightness to match its elegant sophistication. Refreshing! [3.8]

Pretty much the go-to summer IPA in Bellís distribution area - lovably dry and bitter, enough citrus to quench and call me back for more. And a great bang for the buck. [4.0]

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Looks and smells like an IPA should. Sparkling copper color with a nice foamy head. Aroma is citrusy hops with a touch of grapefruit. A clean flavor with citrus and a nice bitter finish. Very well balanced, flawless IPA. Re-rate - I made Stone IPA a 5 because itís the one beer in the world I canít live without. This one is right behind and deserves this high rating, IMO.

Great pour. Batch #7614, packaged 9.6.2006, enjoyed 10.4.2006. Scents of pine,mild citrus, and a little campfire. Wonderfully drinkable; snappy on the tongue, while still being smooth and clean.

This is the best smelling ipa Iíve ever had. I canít quite put my finger on the aroma... definitely some citrus, but thereís more. The taste is not overpowering. Very pleasant.
