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.

Aroma is citrusy, nice and hoppy. Flavor is citrusy and hop flavor does stick with you like its brother ruination but for a normal IPA it is nice.

A bit light for my taste. Clean, good hops; not much depth. But then, I prefer imperial stouts.

Pours golden with two fingers of frothy white head; nice lacing. A brief wisp of malt aroma is quickly outgunned by the bouquet of the freshest floral hops; a tiny bit of skunk. Flavor is well balanced between the aggressive hop bitterness and the flavors of malt and evergreen hops. Medium body and a clean finish. This is a great beer and the best thing by Stone I’ve had.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014 Bottle. Only a faint aroma even poured into a glass. Light and citrusy up front, which fads to a nice bitter finish. Definitely a more citrusy IPA, lacking in malt balance. A good beer, but I really don’t understand the hype. At $45 a case it’s seriously over-priced too.

Cytrusy, grejpfrut, mango. Niestety zapach dość ubogi. Mocna goryczka jak na west coasta przystało.

Deep amber color. Small off-white head mostly diminishing. Aroma is strong hoppy aroma . I love an IPA. In this case this is one of the better varieties of an IPA. Strong hoppy, bitter taste but with substantial malt backbone. Full bodied. Love the palate

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Not a huge fan of IPA’s, but I tried to rate this in it’s catagory. One of the best IPA’s i’ve had. It has a semi-light copper color. Nice foamy head. Taste is very complex. Hoppy start, nice tingle bitter taste, then finishes with a nice dry hop. Stone Rocks

4.3
Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 Pours golden with a small head and medium carbonation. Floral, citrisy, grapefruit aroma. Taste pine, grapefruit, woodsy. This IPA doesn't have the malt kick to balance the hops like dreadnaught or dfh 90, but it is balanced by other flavors and its subtle malt end quite nicely. An excellent IPA right up there in the same league as 3 floyds and dogfish head. RERATE 08/31/03--One last comment about this beer. I bought a sixer of it, and I have been noticing a unique balancing act this beer does. After every sip, the hopiness is overwhelming, and stays completely unbalanced until the very very end. Then, a small spike of maltiness hits just as the flavors have all finished. Every sip, every time. This is an outstanding beer. I am upping the flavor and overall by one point
