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.

Spectacular beer. Pours copper, with a thin head. The aroma is of citrus and hops, with a hint of flowers. The flavor is the perfect combination of hops. Bravo. I liked this better than the Ruination, and its available in a six pack.

Lovely, hoppy aroma...very open and clean. Appears coppery-gold with a slight haze. Taste is bittery-floral - opens into a perfume-bitter arrangement...dries out on the palate to finish smoothly. Great beer...incredibly complex IPA.

I believe that I first tried this gem a decade ago, and yes, I went purely on the logo. If you haven’t tried Stone IPA yet, now’s the time. The appearance, nose, taste, thirst quenching attribute, and after bite all point to excellence. I don’t often indulge due to its price tag, but Bell Bev in South Philly had a great sale. Cheers!

A hazy yellow ale with an airy white head. Citrus nose with some pine the malt aroma is hidden but there. The taste is hoppy with a good balance of malts. It is sweet and bitter, a good IPA. A strong medium body beer with a nice lingering hop taste. Overall a well balanced IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2003 12 oz. bottle Stone scores again (surprised?) with this fist-sized cousin to the beautiful 22 oz. works of art we all know and love, or should. Don't make the mistake of drinking this out of the bottle, though - there's a big beer inside of there, with an assertive hop character and brilliant, clear golden hue. A worthy IPA, and less intimidating than it's brethren.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Very golden, not much if any red. Long lasting head. Sweet, peachy smell and taste, even a little lemony. Smooth finish and not quite as bitter as many of its peers. A little alcohol warmth too. [Tasted next to a Bear Republic Racer 5] The Racer is more red color; more apiricot and pine flavor; and more bitter. The Stone is much sweeter, smoother, and lemony-peach.

Bottle. Light brown, clear pour, moderate head. Big floral hop aroma, with some citrus undertones. Grassy hop taste, with just a little fruit. Very hops, very bitter. very delicious. fantastic IPA. This beer defines what an IPA should be.

This is my favorite IPA so far. Great hoppy flavor and aroma without the bitter aftertaste. A must try if you are an IPA fan.

Cask at the White Horse’s American Beer Festival 2009. What a perfect beer for the summer weather. As I sat in the sun I found the floral, pine and hops aroma thoroughly refreshing. Absolutely full of those classic IPA flavours: citrus, pine and a lasting bitter finish. Wonderful.

Nice golden colour...white head that sticks. Pine and citrus aroma. Nice hoppy flavour and a bitter finish that goes on and on.
