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.

Clear copper beer with a medium white head . Aroma is sweet and citrusy, but ithe flavor does not follow, only offering hops and water. Certainly better than your average IPA, but easily bested by any of Stones other IPA offerings. $2/12oz

milewide (2185) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2006 Excellent IPA with a medium gold color. Less hops and body than Arrogant Bastard---which is to be expected. Also a bit sweeter. Ill buy again but prefer Bells Two Hearted and Founders Centennial IPAs.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Deep orange-gold color, nice medium off-white head. Intense aroma of flowery hops with some fruit. The flavor is well-balanced, both sweet and hoppy. Pleasantly bitter finish. This is a great IPA.

theisti (4060) - Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 Bottle. Huge hop smell and taste. Sweet, lots of grapefruit, just a great beer. I would use this as an example of great American beer.

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 What can I say but yum. This has to be one of my favorites, a wonderfully fruity sweet hop aroma accompanies the flavor wonderfully. If you love hops, this brews for you, flavor is full and fruity, with good carbonation for the beer. Pours a thick white head with a clear golden body. A great brew.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - OCT 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2009 Nice bitter IPA, has an airy mouthfeel that doesnt seem as crisp as it should be. one dimensional, not very clean. very orangey throughout. The aroma is the best thng about it, huge outstanding hoppy nose. the rest is good but its not as good as torpedo or union jack. definitely good but overhyped.

Like everything else from Stone, this is a great beer. Nice and Hoppy but not overbearing.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a dark amber with a lasting white head. Not very carbonated. Long bitter aftertaste, but well balanced and creamy mouthfeel. Actually doesnt seem as bitter as advertised. All in all, a very good beer.

hopheadjohn (14) - Manasquan, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Outstanding IPA. Pours a orange(ish) coppery gold color. Not much of a noticable nose. Floral citrus flavor goes a long way. Somwhat sweet, but tart hoppy finish is memorable. A Home Run.
