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.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Deep orange-gold color, nice medium off-white head. Intense aroma of flowery hops with some fruit. The flavor is well-balanced, both sweet and hoppy. Pleasantly bitter finish. This is a great IPA.

650 ml bottle. Pours golden yellow with a dense white head. Moderate lacing. Intense flowery citrus and pine nose. Moderate body with slight malty sweetness up front followed by a notable hop profile. Nice IPA.

Great hoppy IPA, strong aroma, poured orange with a normal head. Taste is sweet, bitter and hoppy. Overall one of the better IPAs I have had.

Nice head, good lacing, very hoppy aroma, bitter, enjoyed from tap. Not an over powering IPA.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - DEC 2, 2012
Aroma: Sharp, extra hoppy, extra herbal, floral (somewhat like unripe olives), piny and citrusy. Fantastic. Mouthfeel: A solid, smooth body and medium carbonation going on. Taste: Very very bitter, citrusy (lime, grapefruit) and fruity (a combination of peach and pineapple, maybe?). Solid malt background to make this beer round and complete. Finish: Long lasting strong bitterness and zesty tang. I love it. Overall: Top beer.

HOPPY - HOPPY - HOPPY. There is a time and place for hoppiness in a beer and certainly an IPA is one of them (no thanks in Stouts and Porters!!!). Im not a huge hop head, but this beer I did enjoy. Deep golden color. Medium head. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Had it on tap. Nice bitter and hoppy finish, sensing pine needles and such. Taste was not dry, but a pleasant bitter just as an IPA should be.

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2005
This was the beer that alerted me to the brewing genius that was Stone. Its a fantastic example of everything that an IPA should be, loaded with hops, bitterness and just an amazing flavour that is among the best of IPAs. I actually preferred this to the Ruination, which I thought was perhaps a bit much ambition for it to carry. Excellent.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Nice west coast style IPA. Honey colored...nice frothy head. Floral/citrus nose. Pronounced hops, but not over the top...well balanced. Grapefruit the most noticeable in the taste. Nice bitter finish, but again, not too much. Solid IPA.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 Pour is golden yellow, with thin white head. Aroma is candy, hints of sour fruit, plenty of citrus hops. Flavour is sweet orange and pine, some savoury undertones, finishing with plenty of pine and bitterness. Palate is somewhat dry, yet leaving a sticky residue on the tongue.
