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.

A pure citrus and hop amalgamation wafts over a crystal clear golden amber lake. The foam scribes angry dragons and monsters down the glass. Encroaching malt sweetness harmonizes with a brazen bitter. This is a classic. I keep coming back to it, and never tire of the senses it spins.

Bottled. Moderate head with nice lacing. Hoppy aroma. Clean and crisp without being overly bitter. Well balanced with a mellowing presence of malt. It's not as complex as my personal favorite, Victory's Hop Devil, but very, very good.

Amber color with a thick creamy white head. Flowery citrusy, junipery, Cascade hop aroma with a hint of maltyness. Strong citrus, tea, hop flavor bitterness and uncharacteristically but not unplesant subdued malt flavor for a Stone beer. An outstanding beer.

Amazing hoppy yet slightly sweet aroma with a great milky golden appearance. Great hoppy flavor and a nice hoppy finish. Definitely one of the best IPA’s I have ever had!!

Pours a light amber with rocky white head. Aroma is of candied orange. Taste is sweet with hop notes of orange, grapefruit and spice followed by a solid punch of hop bitterness. Some toasted malt notes as well. Just perfect.

Just about perfect California IPA. Great appearance, more than matched by the layered flavors and intense, varied hops. A great effort from one of my favorite breweries... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[A] Very candy-like, sugary, smell. Malt must do it. Piney, orange, fruity hop perfume. This is quite a quaffer. [A] Clear gold. White head. Alive in glass. [F] Piney hops. Hops. Hops. Citrus. Some pale malt sweetness. [P] Between light and medium bodied. Easy to drink. Bitter is great for 70 IBUs. Lingers on. [O] This is a pretty damn flavorful brew. I enjoyed every sip of it. Highly drinkable. 99/100 is impressive. I imagine its deserving, as this is a great definition and rendition of style, let alone, a great beer. Nice.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Can, Berlin Brewing Co. Pours amber with white head. Taste is your typical West Coast IPA - grapefruit citrus, pine, but i also get a tropical lychee taste that I associate with Citra hops that. Interesting but I prefer Stones Ruination Double IPA

This is a very good ipa. It has some excellent undertones that make it one of the best ipas out there.

friendly little brother of ruination. less character but still a great ipa. hoppy and bitter. perhaps a bit less intense than other stone brews
