Pours a hazy light orange with a small head. Big citrus aroma, grapefruit, some pine as well. Very nice flavor. Good stuff. jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2007 Another great offering from Stone...this IPA is damn good, but living in SD has gotten me spoiled on the hops - this one is just your standard interpretation of the American IPA. One knock I found on it was a slightly metallic aftertaste... still recommended though. Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2007
Strong Hop aroma and flavor. Moderate bitterness. Decent mouth feel. An all around good IPA. dillinja (24) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2007
Real killer stuff. Hardly ever do you get so much hoppy bitter in a beer so easily drinkable. Drinking this beer is like hanging out with Jackie Chan - dude is strong enough to kick your ass at any given moment, but he’s too cool to do you like that. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - APR 10, 2007
UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 I’m not an IPA lover, but I loved this beer. Rather than the astringent, bitter hops that I’m used to from IPAs, this one was very lemony and flowery--very delicious. I will seek this one out again.

One of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had. The aroma was a combination of citrus and hops. The flavor was a perfect balance of the two. Wasn’t too bitter. Maverick34 (3239) - New York, USA - APR 8, 2007
Bottled. A pretty darned good IPA. Pours gold w/creamy head, bitter as hell, w/some citrus. A good IPA but not too extreme. RoboHop (21) - Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Possibly the most unique "single" IPA. The aroma and flavor are the most flowery of any IPA I’ve tried. It also has a crispness not apparent in most IPA’s. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first, but by the end of my first one, I was hooked. sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle at Mad Mex (Monroeville). Pours orange, very slightly cloudy. Aroma is classic IPA citrus notes. Hops get you on the initial sip, but in a good way. Grapefruit-pine-citrus-hops. Will try this one again. nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Burnt orange, slightly hazy with a smallish head that lasts and leaves a wet kiss of lace. Aroma is dominated by pine-citrus hop, but sweet malt body is noticeable enough to make a nice counterbalance. Slight banana-soap aroma is a bit out of place here though. Body is light-medium, a little too fizzy and watery. Flavor is strong hop citrus and resin, but malt backbone is almost big enough to balance and then fade slowly into the background as the woody-tea leaf finish and aftertaste take over. Nice, but overrated.
