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.

Good and basic ipa, not the best but one of my personal top 5 ipas. Hoppy, citrusy and flavours of grapes.

(330 ml can) Clear amber-golden beer, with a thick, fluffy white head. Gently carbonated, and can-conditioned, with a few speckles of yeast floating in the glass. A hoppy aroma, with grapefruit, pineapple, and cantaloupe at the forefront, and a slight singe of alcohol. Spicy on the palate, but surprisingly sweet and floral, and well-balanced with a strong caramel malt. The finish is slightly more bitter, with hints of pine and mineral water. The mouthfeel of this beer is tremendously smooth and silky - a classic West Coast IPA.

Golden orange with a slight haze. Large, thick head that dissipated over time. Lacing all the way down the glass. Aromas of fresh hops and ripe citrus. It has a nice bite from hops but not over-powering. A citrus flavor coats the mouth and has a pleasant after-taste. Wonderful IPA.

Stone is consistent. I have been drinking their IPA for many years and cannot notice any change. There might be one or two brews out there to offer a challenge, but for the price, this is my staple IPA. Pour, head, aroma, fllavor, mouthfeel, finish are all top notch. I sure am glad somebody can make a beer this good, regularly. Thanks, guys!

Ok, stone ipa needs no "description" if you havent had it yet your missing out. This is a "staple" beer in our fridge. For nights like tonight where new belgians super cru didnt satisfy me, I pull out a stone ipa and it totally redeems my night!!

22oz. bomber poured into pint glass. Clear light golden color with creamy, fluffy and sticky white head that lasted forever! An excellent presentation. This is a hop beast with hop aroma all over and bitter taste to perfection with nice malt balance to the finish. Big, smooth and creamy body. This is IPA - WANT HOPS!

Touch of cloudiness and a thin head. The aroma is not quite as full as I anticipated but there is definitely a noted floral hoppiness as is to be expected. The body is creamy and medium. The taste really makes up for any flaws. Bitter hops with a fruity sweetness on the side.

Without a doubt the Hoppiest beer Ive ever had. I knew right after that moment that it would be ranked really highly on this site. It was a little too much for me, but it definitely wasnt bad, Id like to try it again one day.
