Refreshing and hoppy., its got a herbal hop presence with medium bodied malts and floral arrangements. A winner for the IPA nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Bottle from Virginia. The aroma is fantastic with tons of hops and sweet caramel malt. The appearance is deep gold with a foamy head. The flavor is very bitter with plenty of sweet malt to balance. The palate is smooth. A very good IPA. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Re-rate 1/24/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Slightly hazy deep golden. Aroma of piney and grapefruity hops and some malt, slightly caramelly. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and continues with lingering grapefruity bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice and quaffable. 6/3/7/3/14=3.3

Bottle. Clear orange color with a medium off-white head. Floral and fruity aroma with lots of hops, citrus, and some peach. Flavor is malty sweet with some caramel and some fruitiness, and evolves into lovely hoppy, grapefruity, bitterness. Nice full-bodied. Great and refreshing. 8/4/8/4/16=4
Bottle. Nice sweet hops aroma. Pours a small head that quickly dissipates to a thin layer of white on top of a light copper color. The taste is a great blend of bitter hops and sweetness, balanced perfectly, and making this beer remarkably drinkable. The hops are muted enough that I could happily session quite a few of these. The only negative is that the mouthfeel is a bit sticky for my preference. Still, a GREAT brew. T3llLAllDE (100) - USA - JUL 12, 2007
very bitter beer about as bitter as you can get before it becomes to much. looks great smells nice. the first taste is a punch in the face of bitterness only for the biggest fans of IPA but a must try for all beer lovers.

Bottle. Pours golden/light amber with a small head. Aroma of hops. Flavor is what you would expect from an IPA, only deeper and more bitter. I can’t feel any fruits probably because they are masked by the bitterns. However, the bitterness persists in the aftertaste and leaves you with a pleasant experience wanting for more. Overall, a very good IPA. Roguemike (4) - Post Falls, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2007 does not count
Any good IPA needs to be heavy on the hops, however it has a good bitter finish. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Deep copper and tawny beer with a nice rounded head and masterful lacing. Stone never ceases to amaze this IPA lover. Big fcitrus, piny, grapefruit nose with equally potent flavor and deiciously bitter finish. One of my favorite IPAs! Not well balanced, but well balanced isn’t always well. Stone keeps it real with this monster "regular" IPA. Yum! Highendfan (1) - Stockton, California, USA - JUL 10, 2007 does not count
First thing you notice is the clean taste followed by a crisp, almost non-existant aftertaste. It is pretty hoppy but I’d like more hops. A very drinkable, light body IPA. anders37 (26657) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Malty hoppy pine needles aroma. Sweet malty hoppy bitter piney flavor with hints of grapefruit. Sweet malty hoppy finish with a long bitter aftertaste.
