One of those beers that would be tough not to enjoy. Wonderful citrus hop aroma. Pours a nice copper brown, thick head. Earthy malt backbone. Silky smooth hop finish. Top notch. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 Bottle... poured a hazy, unfiltered golden color with a bright frothy head. Sweet, citrus hop aroma. A really nice, not too carbonated palate which I like sometimes in a good IPA. Flavors of earthy, piney hops, citrus, caramel, and a nice creamy malt finish. This is one of those beers that you try, and are unexpectedly blown away. This beer doesn’t deserve any beer rating below a 4! mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - APR 28, 2007
Bomber, (with a special thanks to John_Adam2002 for this!), pours a clear golden with a large foamy white head and great lacing. A very nicely blended aroma of floral, citrus, pine and just a touch of caramel. Flavor is a touch subtle on the hops (of course this is an IPA and not IIPA so that’s expected), but very pleasing, with a malty middle and slight lasting bitter finish. A fuller palate and actually a bit creamy. This is one I would definitely include in the regular rotation if I could get it around here. A very well balanced and drinkable IPA; another great one from Stone! GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 27, 2007
Insane that I haven’t rated the one before. I must be slipping. So in order to do it up right, I picked up a bottle at my local grocery store and went to town. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peels, caramel and pine. Appearance is absolutely stunning dark golden color with tiny bubbles, a nice egg-white one-finger head. Mouthfeel was creamy. Flavors were incredibly balanced with a two pronged malt / hop attack. The only thing I could I didn’t care for was a bit of alcohol about mid palate that was slightly off-putting. Other than that a fantastic beer. BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Exactly what I look for in an IPA. Refreshing, very drinkable, and no overpowering bitterness like a lot of double/imperial IPAs. Aroma is citrusy, with a hint of mint. Color is pure gold and clear. Very white moderate head. Citrus very noticeable in the taste. Slight soapiness in the finish. I hope to "borrow" many more from my brother.

one of my favorite IPA’s. hoppier than a lot of other IPA’s but smooth as well. packaging is top notch as well BeNobleDark (62) - Allendale, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2007
Fantastic IPA! Probably the best standard IPA I’ve had to date. Fantastic aroma, pour, and color! This IPA has everything you could ever want - a fantastic balance, firm hops, yet noticable citrus hops that will entrance your mouth until the very last drop! chadje (209) - California, USA - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 A very good IPA, one of the better ones. Pours a nice golden color with a nice head. Tastes good and has a nice citrusy taste and a good hoppy beer. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - APR 23, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a small head. Hoppy with notes of citrus, fruits and yeasts. A bit thin and mild. Touche (57) - New York, USA - APR 22, 2007
10 dollars for a 6 is the only downside but certainly worth the price for this delicious hoppy beer. Refreshing and with a slight bite which leaves the palate searching for more. The bite is not overwhelming, dare I say it is slightly smooth? yes. I’ve enjoyed everything i’ve had by stone and this is one of my favorites.
