Schöne Perlichkeit, unglaubliches Blumenbouquet in der Nase. Im Trunk erstmal etwas matt, dann süßlich, Frucht mittig leicht bitter, hinten kräftiger werdend. Kann man gut trinken, mir aber zu bitter für ein Session IPA. Nevalainen (769) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2017

Whenever an amateur American beer drinker wants to sound enlightened he will..(whilst chugging his Carlsberg) claim that Stone is the only beer worth drinking in the US. So, because of this I am happy to get hold of a can, albeit at an extortionate 125nt from the local 7-11 in Taipei ( beers of the summer) . The nose suggests it will be bitter and hoppy. I get grapefruit, bitter hops and blood orange. The pour is good, it is a light lemony colour with a frothy head....Sort of reminds me of McEwan’s Best Scotch ( the head I mean). The flavour is American hops all over. Bitter on the tongue and zesty. It is almost tonic-wateresque but in a palatable way ( I hate tonic water ). It is a little watery and the bitterness is sharp but fleeting and not as full flavoured as say a Sam Adams would be.
One major plus is it isn’t 6% + which most American IPA’s seem to claim is the norm. I once had a debate with an American about the strength of American IPA’s. He claimed English IPA’s were weak and understrength. Given we invented the beer I feel my argument was justified that American’s see IPA’s as a hostile ABV war that take no prisoners unless it is pushing 7%. They also think the more hop the better. In this case tho, it is hoppy, bitter and drinkable. I do know now to tell the novice American drinker when he tells me the virtues of Stone that in fact it is not that great and most high end IPA’s are in fact as good if not better. ken1 (2003) - DENMARK - JUN 24, 2017

Can from Stone Berlin. Murky golden. Moderate white head. Nice aroma of passion fruit, peach, pineapple, melon, zesty hop. Light body. Low carbo. Dry hoppy taste. Fruity, medium to heavy bitter. Grapefruit. Good. CloakedDagger (2481) - - JUN 19, 2017
Can 33 cl. Pours a hazt golden with a small, white head. Massively - and somewhat offputting - dank aroma. Lightish body, very fruity, quite some fresh aroma hops leading up to a dry and bitter finish. I never was a fan of that rough Stone aroma.... 190617 radassace (317) - SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2017
330ml can. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Nose is mango, pineapple, blood orange, grapefruit, sweet malts, grainy malt hops and some pine. Light mouth feel. Taste is like a tropical fruit bowl with a nice sweet caramel malt back bone. Big bitterness kicks in. Nice resinous feel on the palate. Long lasting dry bitter finish. Bloody fantastic ! grimfandango (35) - GREECE - JUN 17, 2017
0,33l can at Sorry Mom Liquor store ,athens.Pours hazy golden.Small one finger lasting foam.Aromas of citrus,tropical fruits.Bitter with bitter lasting aftertaste.Overall a great IPA. Fules (1225) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 17, 2017
Nagy, tartós hab, borostyán szín. Fűszeres, citrusos, déligyümölcsös illat. Komplex ízvilág, gyakorlatilag nem lehet külön érezni a különböző aromákat, gyümölcsös és fűszeres alkotók viszik a prímet. Könnyű, erősen szénsavas és keserű, leheletnyi gyantával. Finom, jól csúszó sör, bár egész estés italhoz egy kissé keserűbb a kelleténél.
