COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: Originally tap only and listed at 8.3% abv and 116 IBUs.

While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. We’ve brewed many over the past 18 years, from double-down bitter bombs to piney session sippers. Whether it’s big IBUs or a precise ABV, there’s usually a target we’re shooting for. The same is true of this, our latest IPA, but we gave zero thought to any acronyms. This one was all about packing as much unique and, you guessed it, delicious flavor into a glass as humanly possible, regardless of oomph or octane. This intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor that’s balanced by hop spice. It’s unlike anything we’ve tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation we’re excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.

Bottle description: Great beer is for everyone and anyone with the good taste to recognize it, not just a niche group like us über beer geeks. So, when we developed this pleasantly bitter, deliciously citrusy, hop-driven IPA, we took it as an opportunity to go a step further and do something we’d spent over a year researching and perfecting: creating a beer that makes it possible for nearly everyone to experience our aggressive, no-holds-barred approach to craft brewing. It’s a flavorful, cutting-edge, modern-day IPA for everyone. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops provide plenty of fruity citrus character and a burst of hop zing that sings on the palate. We’re proud to present it to those who already know us for our IPA prowess and to those who, so far, have only heard the legends.

Rogue I don't think has the capabilities to make a bad IPA. Every single one I get is so damn good, this one is no exception to the rule. Damn delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Appearance is yellow, with nice sparkle, 1.5-finger width white foamy head with good retention, decent lacing. Aroma is citrus, resin. Taste as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and finish as taste. Overall good flavor but a bit more bitter than ideal for me.

Thought I had rated this previously, not the case. Just as well, Stone is normally a treat. Tasted from a 12 oz bottle it is a swell lemon-grapefruit opening with a touch of sweetness followed by a medium bitterness. Some hoppiness, some grass, it is all right. A decent kick with the 7.7 abv it is the best of all worlds.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow, small white head. Aroma is peach, sweet impression. Bitter, slight sweetness. Crisp grapefruity and fruity peach flavoured. Bitter and dry, quite fruity finish.

zubblwump (103) - Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2017
Nice citrus nose, but a lot more subtle to me than the bottle had me expecting. orange-ish hued amber without much head. Bitterness dominates the mouth, with a little citrus aftertaste. I’m not getting the lemon per se, but there’s something there. Idk, its alright but I was hoping for more.
