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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a small head. Hoppy with notes of citrus, fruits and yeasts. A bit thin and mild.

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.

Until I discoved the AleSmith IPA, this was my favorite. And sometimes I still choose this over the AleSmith. This diserves it’s famousness.

Cant say much here that has not already been said. This beer is a hallmark IPA of the west coast style, and was one of the first beers to get me addicted to hoppy brews, and always comes back to me as a great session beer. Crisp and refreshing.

Excellent aroma, great balance of hops, citrus flavor and bitterness. Only down side is a hint of alcohol. I love this beer - very much worth going out of the way to find it.
