bottled: poured into chilled glass. lovely deep amber color. perfect long lasting head... i drank the whole thing and the head was still about 1/4 inches. Great smooth hoppy taste and aroma. Similar to other IPAís as far as Palate. Strongly recommend this one.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

12oz bottle thanks to Jaye. Pours light golden colour with lots of off white foam, and it sticks around for a while. Aroma of citrus hops and a little malt. Taste is very smooth, with proper amount of IPA hop bitterness. Flavour dies away rather abruptly, leaving a thirst for me. A nice IPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber to copper in color with a good light tan head. Intense mandarin/peach aroma. Wonderful lacing in glass. Good carbonation and light mouthfeel. Strong citrus flavor with slight bitterness. More of a refreshing IPA without the drying bitterness of most IPAs. Lasting finish balanced of sweet and bitter. On a personal note I really enjoy this beer on its own or with a meal. Slightly higher ABV, but not overpowering alcohol.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 This IPA is about as good as it gets. This and Ballast Point Sculpin are the top 2 single IPAs IMO. taste and smell are fantastic. canít say anything negative about this one. If you get the chance to try do so, if you are a hophead you will not be disappointed.

So far, my favorite IPA. Nice touch of hops, pine, citrus/grapefruit, some bitterness, and nice clean finish. Great by the bottle but tremendous from the tap.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had at Taps in Atlanta, Ga.
Not much in the nose. Faint hop and malt aroma. Super tropical hop flavor. Clear straw color. Medium mouthfeel. Well balanced. Finishes clean.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy and off white with an attractive and intricate blanket of carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma is heavy and complex, like a warm and humid pine forest. Carmel maltiness and loads of sharp hops. More body than expected. There’s much to appreciate in this malt-driven IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice, golden brown color. Small white had with little to no lacing. Fruity aroma. Oranges, grapefruit. Some yeast as well maybe even a slight piney smell in there as well. Bitter bite right away. Nice and thick. Gra[pefruit was the first thought about the taste of this beer. More citrus in there some pine flavors as well. Finishes with a littel bitter of a aftertaste. Good, but not my favorite.
