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.

why is everybody ridin this beers jock? its too yellow looking first off secodnly the aroma is one dimensional just resiny hops. the taste is way too mellow. hoppy but weak and watery and just bitter. dont get me wrong i love hops and ipas and this beer is decently made but id rather drink about a hundred other ipas instead. and for real no way is this the 10 bucks a six pack it goes for everywhere. very middle of the road.

Oh yes, Im drinking one right now. To say that Stone IPA is "hoppy" would be putting it modestly. BIG hop flavor and BIG hop aroma with a ton of hop bitterness. Plus its 100% all natural brew. Cant beat that.

Floral hoppy nose, same with taste...perfect balance... the malt is in perfect harmony with the hops...subtle grapefruit..refreshing..light amber color, pours a fluffy white head that doesnt last...one of the most perfect IPAs besides dogfish head 90 minute... lacing is sweet as well....:)

rauchbier (3857) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Gold, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Excellent resinous piney hops, orange citrus and sweet malt in the nose, more citrus in the mouth with a resinous hop bitterness, a spicy pepper note and slight sweet perfumed maltiness. Lingering solid but restrained peppery hop bitterness in the finish.

12 oz. bottle from de reuze market in grand rapids. very impressive ipa. not as strong as the ruination, but way better taste than most microbrews.

Poured lighter than I would have expected. Hazy macro color. On the virge of a white. Nice white head that died down but provided nice lacing. Centennial hops in the aroma. Sort of thin watery mouthfeel with plenty of hop flavor and bitterness. I agree with other people that I probably like this more than Ruination.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Bottled and tap @ the Brewery. Smells hoppy and lemon grassy. Apearance is of a rich apple cider or juice. Tastes grassy, and of grapefruit. Lasting hop flavor.

Poured from a bottle, working on a cold so might have to re-rate some day. For a orangish amber color beer this one looks pretty darn good. Now I am starting to understand why people like Stone so much. Head was a creamy white that actually held its head well. Again with the cold, I smelled a sweet fruity almost peppery aroma. Flavor had a small bite to it that was enjoyable. Overall a good one from Stone.

The 22 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy orange-amber beverage with a full creamy off-white head that was fully lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The aroma presented a huge hop profile with orange peel, grapefruit, and a light herb character. The body was full with a soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor starts off lightly sweet and maintains that sweetness throughout the long finish. The flavors of orange and pineapple are subtle but detectable in the background.
