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.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear golden color with small white head. Floral hoppy aroma. Hoppy taste with bitter after taste. Very clean finish.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2007
Amber, some haze. Bit grassy on the nose, a touch of ammonia. Pleasant bitterness, crisp and clean on the palate, not like my previous experiences with Stone, a little more user friendly!

On draft, amber pour with a nice white head. Smells of pine, hops, and a little sweetness. Taste was surprisingly mellow, not as hoppy as they would have you believe. Nice mellow flavor, easy drinking beer. A fine I.P.A. that doesn’t kill you with the hops.

Bottle - Slightly hazed orange pour with a creamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus hop. Flavor is big and hoppy, matching the aroma of floral and citrus with a good balance of malty notes. Finishes clean and spicy but not necessarily dry. Very drinkable for a big hoppy IPA.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Pours a clear orange with moderate white head. Aroma is certainly hoppy, but not overpowering. Medium-bodied with a taste that is smoot, bitter, and finishes dry (but not too dry). This is an IPA that even my wife could drink with its rich flavor and smooth taste. I liked this even better thatn the reuination IPA

4.1
mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Pours a cloudy orange with a light fizzy white head. Smells of rich floral hops, some malt characters, and some grapefruit. Smells like an IPA. The taste has a nice sweetness to it, rich hoppy characters, with some bitter sweet fruits. Really, really, well balanced. Might be its best feature. Really easy to drink and leaves a nice grapefruit taste in the back of the throat. Solid brew.

3.8
masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
22 oz bottle. Poured a hazy orange/gold color. half inch of white head. Exaclty what I would expect from an IPA. Hoppy, piny, citrus, nice malt backbone. Good IPA, but it didn’t impress me like I thought it might. Really nothing to seperate it from the pack. Drinkable and quality, but maybe a little overrated.

3.7
jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2007
A very good IPA. Smooth finish, nice hops flavor, some pine. Good citrus aroma. Not much citrus in the flavor though. Its good, but I don’t know if I’m really wild about it. It just doesn’t have a whole lot of ’pow’ to in terms of citrus and hops. An easy drink, but I think its overrated.
