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.

Great hop aroma, clear dark color with medium head, big hopy flavor and great mouth feel that sits on the back of the tounge

Another perfectly crafted brew from Stone. IPA is not my favorite style, but I like this beer a lot. It goes perfectly with Indian food. The aroma is great, the hops are pronounced and well-balanced with the other complexities of the flavor. A very drinkable, very good beer.

I just dont know what to say about this one. Grapefruit and pine. Ahh. Citrus is fresh off the tree. If you love hops the way I do you will simply love to drink this. I could have it every day.

Bomber. Cloudy orange rust pour with thin white head. Pine aroma with nice strong hops and faint orange-citrus. Sweet citrus taste with fantastic bitter finish. One of my favs of the style.

My brother picked a bottle of this up for me when he was in Indiana. Shared with Duane. Light honey colored pour with a small white head. Piney aroma, not very strong though. Flavor of tons of piney and citrusy hops but very well balanced. Very tasty, easy drinking IPA

UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 Not very sweet on the nose. Definitely a pine hoppiness. Tastes dry, crisp citrus hop. Very straightforward and well crafted.

I was expecting so much more. Run of the mill IPA for me. FFF pale ale had more hop character than this...

On Draft. Wasnt a big fan of this. My friend who was drinking it with me said he had had it before and it tasted much better previously. Maybe I had a bad batch, will rerate later. But the sample I had was very flavorless; some hop presence, but very watery.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2007 Cloudy golden color with little head. Aroma is sour and hoppy. Flavor is pretty hoppy and bitter. Great IPA.
