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.

Deep gold, with a massive head that fades to a lose foamy mass, that laces down the glass before the first sip. Sharp strong aroma of hops. Medium body with a refreshing hop bitterness that doesnt sour the taste. The finish is a bit tart.

A fine IPA with few equals. If you want a satisfing west coast IPA then here you go. When you have graduated from this one then youll be ready for the Ruination. Enough said

Bottle: Orange amber color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with malt and citrus, hops aplenty. Taste is a solid hops feel with citrus and floral tones. Simple and delicate, yet potent.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
12oz bottle poured a clear gold color with a nice white head. Had aromas of pine and some yeast character. Taste had a smooth bitterness with a dry finish that lingered. Overall a basic IPA that didnt have much of a malt presents.

This pours nice and golden, white head with some lacing on the glass. Certainly looks like the perfect refreshing summer brew. Floral and piney hop aroma that comes through to give it most of its flavor. Crisp, and not overly bitter, very good.

Sorry peeps, I think this IPA is over rated. It pours a dark straw color with large fizz and a big head that dissipates quickly with minimal lacing. The aroma is mild, considering 70+ IBUs, with carmel notes and floral hops. The bitterness hits quickly but leaves quicker than I had hoped. Dont get me wrong, this is a damn good IPA, I just do not think it is worthy of a 99.

Another great product from Stone brewing, these guys know what they are doing. I have had this one so many times that I stopped counting but it is up there with Three Floyds Alpha King. I love this stuff! The aroma is very floral and pungent, and the taste is a great bitterness that is far from overwhelming mixed in with awesome floral and piney tastes from the hops. A great IPA and a standard in my everyday beer rotation.

Bottle. Lovely, aromatic stuff; just a bit of carbonation bite, very floral.
