COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

Fantastic IPA! Probably the best standard IPA Ive had to date. Fantastic aroma, pour, and color! This IPA has everything you could ever want - a fantastic balance, firm hops, yet noticable citrus hops that will entrance your mouth until the very last drop!

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 A very good IPA, one of the better ones. Pours a nice golden color with a nice head. Tastes good and has a nice citrusy taste and a good hoppy beer.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a small head. Hoppy with notes of citrus, fruits and yeasts. A bit thin and mild.

10 dollars for a 6 is the only downside but certainly worth the price for this delicious hoppy beer. Refreshing and with a slight bite which leaves the palate searching for more. The bite is not overwhelming, dare I say it is slightly smooth? yes. Ive enjoyed everything ive had by stone and this is one of my favorites.

Until I discoved the AleSmith IPA, this was my favorite. And sometimes I still choose this over the AleSmith. This diserves its famousness.

Cant say much here that has not already been said. This beer is a hallmark IPA of the west coast style, and was one of the first beers to get me addicted to hoppy brews, and always comes back to me as a great session beer. Crisp and refreshing.

Excellent aroma, great balance of hops, citrus flavor and bitterness. Only down side is a hint of alcohol. I love this beer - very much worth going out of the way to find it.

Hops and sweet citrus aroma. Flavor is crisp, whispering apples and oranges, moderately acidic with just enough hops punch. Nice creamy, assertive texture. Highly drinkable.

Excellent brew, what less could you expect out of Stone. Lacing like whoa, not the most powerful of aromas though. Nothing like ruination. Good balance, smooth beer. Mouthfeel was pretty good, but sometihng wasnt sitting well with me, cant put my finger on it. Tastes a nice bit of hoppiness but nothing to overwhelming. Bit of an alcohol presence unfortunately, which surprises me since Stone Ruination is nearly a percent higher, and I just finished one of those and tasted no alcohol. Oh well, very good beer nonetheless, but this will be my last today cause Stones other quality is they get you drunk fast... God Bless Hops.
