COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, can, and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
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.

Pours slightly hazy,, with rich golden color. Impressive citrus flavors with a moderate, yet smooth, bitter finish. This is a very dry beer without almost no sweet taste. An excellent beer.

verstellung77 (19) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 22oz. bottle served 46F in snifter. Hazy tawny port in colour. Strong but very pleasant hop aroma with an abundance of fresh mown hay. Hop notes lingered for minutes.until my tongue begged for another fix... but, that eventually washed out to white noise. No malt flavor to mention. I enjoy the aroma much more than the taste. Thank you andyhite. Cheers Brother!

Duster72 (117) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 Pours a slightly cloudy orangey golden. Aroma is the show stopper with a wonderful bouquet of citrus hops with grapefuit up front. Taste follows the aroma with more floral hops than anticipated. A little bit on the bitter side, but not in a bad way. Mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Highly drinkable. Nice IPA.

This was the first time I saw Stone products in 12oz. Bottles so, I picked up a 6 pack. It was a bit pricey at $9.00 but, Ive never been disappointed by a Stone beer so, I tried it. It poured up a nice golden color with a inch head and a very hoppy nose, it obviously received a heavy dose of dry hopping. The body was a bit thin but the flavor and bitterness were right on. I enjoyed it but wouldnt rank it in my top 10 IPAs.

Nice drink - not as great as I was led to believe but still a good IPA. Heavy hop body with a strong, but bland malt essence. Not bitter enough to be memorable and not malty enough to be smoothly appealing. The citrusy hops play the starring role, as they should, however the rest is a tad predictable and maybe too spicy for the lack of malt body. Better than average however I expected more from the makers of the Arrogant Bastard.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 17, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a bright, light orange/golden color with a generous foamy white head. Aroma is interesting and little different for an IPA. Floral hops but theres also almost a slight fruitiness to it as well. A little bit of pine too. Taste is very bitter and slightly hoppy with a nice spicy kick to it. Very interesting. Im impressed.
