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.

Pivo v plechovce: Deep golden with an orangey sheen, hazy to cloudy, lacy white foam; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flowery to piney nose, sweet pale mal and some cookies detectable in the background; solid - but not too dry - bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, very soft; lingering dry bitter piney finish with - as expected - hops stickin’ to the palate and still a good dash of sweet malt. Even though I’m already fed up with all the "craft-beer hop bombs", I’ve to admit that this is a well made , well balanced example of astonishing drinkability...

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2017 Poors amber, light white head. A bit of caramel. Heavy hopy, strong grapefruit, pinewood, a little of apricot. Light sweet, strong bitterness. Good balance between hope taste and bitterness.

Just an all-around very good IPA. This is one I would give to someone who has never tried an IPA before. The pine and citrus and bitter are just not that strong for someone who is not ready for it. Readily available too.

kinyas (7) - - MAY 15, 2017 does not count
The aroma has a nice balance between dank resin and juicy citrus. Also lots of orange peel. Two finger white head, maybe a very light off-white. Lovely colour, slightly cloudy. Initial taste is very juicy, then orange peel bitterness comes through, lingering for a very long time. It takes a good length of time for all the flavours present to make themselves apparent. The initial juicy burst makes it very drinkable, to boot. This beer has a stellar reputation; well-deserved in my book.

Drank this beer quite a lot seven years ago, I've just started again it's a classic for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Berlin version, just a pale replica of the original. Very bitter, not as "tasteful" as the other beers from Stone in the U.S.A.
