UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Wow! Great IPA.
Nice blend of hops, great taste goes well with most food.
Great aroma, citusy; a very light lemon/lime hint in aroma and taste, nothing standing out or over powering. Good palate, not overpowering and lingers for just about the right amount of time.
Overall this is a well balanced great tasting IPA and one of the ales I can drink all night. Cheers! LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2006
SO this is Stone IPA. This was everything that reminds me of west Coast. The citrus, the hops, the cremy flavor, the orange jello color. This was pretty bitter for just a regular IPA but not bad. Very light and easy to drink. Thanks again Shag 2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2006
First off, this is a delicious IPA. From the 22oz bottle, it pours a light amber color with a large, creamy, off-white head. Body clarity is hazy. Aroma is of heavy flowery hops, with hints of apple, pear, and honey. Initial taste is moderately sweet as the honey continues to be present. There is also some light bitterness. Finish is both lightly sweet and bitter. Mouthfeel is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation. This is not a beer for hop-haters. awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Pale lemon rind yellow coloring with a nice creamy white head. Orange, lemon, and grapefruit color the hoppy aromas. Smooth, refreshing flavor with just enough hoppiness, and not overbearing. A white grapefruit smack lingers for awhile before being replaced by a fresh grassy tinge on the tongue. Fresh, crisp refreshing brew. cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Full of hoppiness. A slightly off Amber color with a decent head that sticks around for a bit. A nice IPA for you to drink.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Bomber. Pours hazy orange with a nice white head. Very nice west coast citrus and floral hop aroma. Malt and hop balance is very good for an IPA, athough I would prefer more sweetness. Finish is clean, dry, bitter, and grassy from the the dry hopping. Does not stick at the back of the mouth like some IPAs. Nicely done. REVISITED 8-10-06. Boy a fresh bottle makes a difference. The residual sweetness that I was looking for was there. The hops give off almost a fruit loop ceral type of flavor. Nice!!!! beanwiggin (22) - California, USA - FEB 14, 2006
nice taste and a great finish! this stone is exceptional for all occasions and may be a reasonable substitute for those picnic days when everyone else is drinking, dare i say, light beers. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2006
A very good IPA, however I found the level or amount or type of hops to be a little too dry for my taste. Great coloring, nicely floral aroma, yet smells as if stored in very old wood barrels prior to pouring. Overall, too hoppy for me, but a quality beer nonetheless. droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - FEB 11, 2006
22oz bottled poured a rich copper color w/ a mountainous off-white head. Aggressive hop aroma with a slight nuttiness. The flavor was wonderful! Nice bitter flavor with notes of citrus and pine. Very crisp and refreshing aftertaste. Hoppier than your average IPA, highly recommended. JFowler (32) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 The finest IPA available.Crisp fruity and clean with mild bite.A hint of pine on the finish super drinkable. My staple beer. There is not much more to say then asking you this question.Why are you still reading this review? Go get some Stone IPA. The Gold Standard of India’s. Light fruity and very refreshing.
