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.

Pretty damn good. Nice piney hops, but not too over the top. Stone makes some great beers and this is one of ’em. It’s neck and neck between this and Bells 2 Hearted for my fav IPA.

Bottle. Shiny copper coloring. Thick foamy pour. Lacy head evaporates slowly, coating glass. Hoppy in aroma but surprisingly subtle, more balanced in taste. Incredibly smooth finish. "It’s like there’s a party in my mouth and everyone’s invited"

I wanted a classic when I was down in Ohio and finding this puppy did not disappoint! Pours a golden dark yellow with a sweet mild hop that comes through right upon opening. A lingering wisp of sweetness trails with you throughout the brew. This one goes down SO eay, it’s bound to get you into a lot of trouble if not checked. In a way it sort of reminds me of the effects of an Orval. This is a top beer!

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 doesn’t 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 you’ll 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.
