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.

bartlebier (4209) - Belchium im Biersgau, - NOV 19, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 Big, bold, hoppety-hoppy, resinous - I get it: it sets the standard for initiating old-world tastebuds to West-Coast IPA zesty-bitterness with the subtlety of a forced skydive. Expertly brewed, inspiring awe but not overzealous amounts of affection in my Belgian-for-balance-educated palate. // Rerate as Stone Berlin IPA, 33cl Dose canned JUN2016: not the most aroma-forward of IPAs, mainly foamy proteins, wet pine and even a whiff of alcohol, really. well-dosed layers of mainly pine and woodbark, pith and fruit rinds in taste against a condensed pale malt base. The bitterness outlasts the lustre...update recipe 2.0?

caketm (420) - Czestochowa, POLAND - JAN 15, 2018
Puszka 0,33 l. Wypita 15.01.2018. Piwo uwarzone w Berlinie. Barwa złota, delikatnie zmętniona. Piana biała, gęsta i trwała, ładnie osadza się na szkle. Mocny cytrusowy aromat. Poza tym bliżej nie określona, nie zbyt fajna nuta, trochę jakby stodoła. W smaku potężna goryczka, ale też sporo słodkości, takiej klejącej. Konkretna ilość cytrusów, przede wszystkim gorzkiego grejpfruta. Wysycenie średnie. To piwo jest naprawdę dobre, choć nie jest idealne.

Piwo w puszcze 0,33ml. Piwo w aromacie trochę słabe, czuć coś niepokojącego. Ogółem piwo nie jest złe.

On tap, clear amber-copper. This one is quite bitter. Not very floral, but the citrus taste is there. The crispness really carries it.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Pours a golden amber with a white head from the tap. Citrus and pine aroma. Crisp and very hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

panda_brewmaster (122) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2018
Berlin can. Aromas of malt, hay and subtle grapefruit. Taste is quite bitter with some malty sweet and metallic notes. High carbonation and medium-full body. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. I believe one of the reasons Stone Brewing went to brew in Berlin was to prove a point that Americans can make good or even better beer than the Germans. They failed to do so with this one.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Flagship of Stone brewery. All beer I tasted in Berlin, and they are actually brewed in Berlin. This one is very good, fruit aromas, grapefruit, balanced beer.
