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.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle bought from LiquidSolutions.biz. The smell is fantastic, full of hoppy goodness and citrus notes. Full bodied taste, with a high drinkability factor, and a fine crisp finish.

Bottle that theisti brought back for me from Bottleworks, in Seattle. Pours a sparkling gold with a rocky, off-white head. The nose is of strong resiny hops, citrus, pine and a light caramel malt in the background. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, creamy and bitter; just the way I like my IPAs. The flavor is citrus, resin, and pine with a nice malt backing and some fruity notes. This beer, however, is all about the hops. A great bitter finish that lingers at the back of your tongue and begs you to take another drink. This is definitely a top tier IPA and one that I hope will eventually make it to KC. Thanks again, Tim.

Bottle from Virginia. The aroma is fantastic with tons of hops and sweet caramel malt. The appearance is deep gold with a foamy head. The flavor is very bitter with plenty of sweet malt to balance. The palate is smooth. A very good IPA.

DSG (15432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2017 Re-rate 1/24/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Slightly hazy deep golden. Aroma of piney and grapefruity hops and some malt, slightly caramelly. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and continues with lingering grapefruity bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice and quaffable. 6/3/7/3/14=3.3

Bottle. Clear orange color with a medium off-white head. Floral and fruity aroma with lots of hops, citrus, and some peach. Flavor is malty sweet with some caramel and some fruitiness, and evolves into lovely hoppy, grapefruity, bitterness. Nice full-bodied. Great and refreshing. 8/4/8/4/16=4

Bottle. Nice sweet hops aroma. Pours a small head that quickly dissipates to a thin layer of white on top of a light copper color. The taste is a great blend of bitter hops and sweetness, balanced perfectly, and making this beer remarkably drinkable. The hops are muted enough that I could happily session quite a few of these. The only negative is that the mouthfeel is a bit sticky for my preference. Still, a GREAT brew.

very bitter beer about as bitter as you can get before it becomes to much. looks great smells nice. the first taste is a punch in the face of bitterness only for the biggest fans of IPA but a must try for all beer lovers.

Bottle. Pours golden/light amber with a small head. Aroma of hops. Flavor is what you would expect from an IPA, only deeper and more bitter. I can’t feel any fruits probably because they are masked by the bitterns. However, the bitterness persists in the aftertaste and leaves you with a pleasant experience wanting for more. Overall, a very good IPA.

Any good IPA needs to be heavy on the hops, however it has a good bitter finish.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Deep copper and tawny beer with a nice rounded head and masterful lacing. Stone never ceases to amaze this IPA lover. Big fcitrus, piny, grapefruit nose with equally potent flavor and deiciously bitter finish. One of my favorite IPAs! Not well balanced, but well balanced isn’t always well. Stone keeps it real with this monster "regular" IPA. Yum!
