COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Growler. Super-solid IPA. Pours a nice, light orange-gold with a fine white head. Heavy aroma of bitter hops, noting pine and citrus. Flavor is a hop roller coaster: exciting and exhilarating. (None of the experience made me want to hurl, mind you.) Very mild hints of malt. Alcohol is almost undetectable. Bitter, crisp, lip-smacking finish with lingering hops on the tongue. Really, really good.

fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2004
Hazy golden color. Very nice and fruity aroma: hop, malt, oranges, fudge, pink grapefruit. Quite dry texture, thin body, the malt shows better a bit later, and of course very hoppy (and well fruity). Very good.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 6, 2011
Harmonischer, sehr starker Hopfengeruch, blumig, natürlich, deutlich nach Honig. Selbstverständlich ist der Antrunk sehr hopfig, leicht blumig und honigartig. Der Hopfen kommt hier in absolut reiner Form vor. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier etwas süß, der Hopfen wird durch eine leichte Malznote fülliger. Hier setzen außerdem die ersten Bitternoten ein, die sich im Abgang steigern, insgesamt aber auf angenehmem und erfrischenden Niveau bleiben. Im Abgang findet man zudem leichte Zitrusnoten und einen erdigen Touch. Absolut harmonisches IPA 11/13/12/13/11/13

The last of the 1,000+ ratings Stone beers I’ve had many times before but never rated ! Keg at Stone Brewing San Diego Airport, 22/04/14. Clear light golden with a moderate off white covering that retains well. Nose is bitter citrics, juicy hops, bitter orange, grass, grapefruit. Taste is more agressive than the aroma suggests, bitter hops, grapefrit, light pine, toasted bread, orange pith, grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressve hop bitterness in the close. Well balanced easy drinking IPA.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2007
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. It’s just grapefruit juice. Gold with slight haze, bubbly off white head. Lots and lots of grapefruit. Fine in mouth. I was really looking forward to this and it’s still a little lacking in the mouth like the pale ale. Great, great hop though and decent balance.

Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, pine, fruits and malt. Very bitter and long bitter finish. Nice!
